Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If you've ever thought of going Vegan, a local organization is urging you to do so before the holidays.

FM-Veg, a vegan and vegetarian group, spent the day at MSUM raising awareness of eating a diet full of plants and excluding dairy and meat.

One of its slogans - "thanksgiving is murder on turkeys, but it doesn't have to be."

The group focuses on what it calls the inhumane killing of factory farm animals.

Not only that - a member says eating healthier has changed her life.

Kathleen Keene/FM Veg: “my cholesterol dropped from 225 to 173 just in a couple of months. All my tryglicerides, my LDL and all those numbers improved.”

FM-Veg hopes you'll join in their 7th Annual Gentle Thanksgiving Potluck - this Sunday at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church.
