Oprah announced today that she’s going vegan for at least 21 days. She’s even acknowledged that evolving to “conscious eating” means more than just being conscious of yourself and your choices - but conscious of the animals whose bodies are milked dry, tortured and bled, and pulverized for gluttony. The good news about this is, of course, the far-reaching influence of her example.
(from her blog)
"Wow, wow, wow! I never imagined meatless meals could be so satisfying. I had been focused on what I had to give up—sugar, gluten, alcohol, meat, chicken, fish, eggs, cheese. "What's left?" I thought. Apparently a lot. I can honestly say every meal was a surprise and a delight, beginning with breakfast—strawberry rhubarb wheat-free crepes." — Oprah
