Halloween and Plant-Based Food Traditions

Meat-Free for All Saint’s Day

You know I love me my food history!

Even though Halloween has already passed, I still invite you to listen to my Food for Thought episode on Halloween and its Plant-Based Food Traditions.

In it, I delve into the origins of All Hallow’s Eve and the rich tapestry of traditions that surround this enchanting holiday, and I uncover the deep connections between Halloween and plant-based foods — from pumpkin carving and apple bobbing to yet another meat-free Christian holy day.

P.S. If you haven’t yet left a positive review on Apple Podcasts, would you be so kind as to take a few minutes to do so? Thank you!

About Colleen

Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully. 

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
