Kevin Smith and his family will celebrate their Thanksgiving a little differently this year.

Since suffering a major heart attack back in February, the director adopted a vegan lifestyle and lost 50 pounds. Now, Smith is planning to start a new holiday tradition by hosting a vegan Thanksgiving dinner.

The 48-year-old and his daughter, fellow vegan Harley Quinn, partnered with Farm Sanctuary’s 33rd Annual Adopt a Turkey Project, opting to save a turkey instead of eating one, Page Six reports. In the promotional video, Smith said he is thankful Harley Quinn pushed him to go vegan after his health scare.

“I’m thankful I’m alive, and then I’m thankful for my kid who was like, ‘Yeah, go vegan.’ I’m thankful I got good advice. I’m thankful I followed it, to be honest,” he said.

The Clerks director has been actively working towards losing weight since recovering from his heart attack. The 48-year-old has documented his journey on Instagram and just last month he announced he’s at his lowest weight since high school. Besides adopting his vegan lifestyle, he also is an ambassador for Weight Watchers (now rebranded WW for Wellness Works), which he says has also contributed to his weight loss.

The scale said 198 today! This is the first time since High School that I#emo#4oCZ##ve weighed under 200 pounds! Never... NEVER imagined I could get here again but a heart attack can be a great motivator. This #wwambassador thanks @ww - whose Points system made it possible to drop the lbs! I also wanna thank my little exercise partner Shecky, my Vegan explorer @harleyquinnsmith, @veggiegrill, #pennjillette, @adam_rifkin, @raycronise and #runyoncanyon! And a big thanks to all you folks who kept me going with your sweet supportive sentiments! Now over the next few months, I#emo#4oCZ##m gonna slowly try to get down to 190! #KevinSmith #ww #weightlosstransformation #WWFamily #wellnessthatworks #WWBros #WWCommunity #ad *People following the Weight Watchers program can expect to lose 1-2lbs per week.

Smith said he won’t miss a thing about chowing down on the Thanksgiving bird since going vegan.

“I’ve been a vegan for over six months and there’s honestly nothing I miss," he said in the video.
