No Thanksgiving turkey for talk show host, comedian and vegan Ellen DeGeneres. She recently sat down with People.com to dish about what will and won’t be on her Thanksgiving plate. DeGeneres’s typical choices include yams, green beans, stuffing or anything veggie-based.

When asked if it’s hard to be vegan on Thanksgiving, DeGeneres said, “It doesn’t make [Thanksgiving] harder at all. It makes it easier on the turkeys, too. They get to live.”

It’s not so easy to make a point about veganism without sounding strident, but DeGeneres pulls it off perfectly. In the same interview, she promotes Power a Smile, a charitable collaboration between Duracell and Toys for Tots. Power a Smile will ensure kids who receive donated toys during the holidays will also receive the batteries needed to power their toys.

Just another holiday and another reason to love Ellen.
