Oprah goes vegan [May. 22nd, 2008|10:50 am]

[music |Watching Six Feet Under Season 2]

(re-posted)
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)

Week one:

"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

Yay! So much more respect for her now! And yes, I hope this has some kind of positive effect because she has a huge audience.

I wonder if she's coming up with ideas of what to eat herself or if she has someone preparing her meals for her. The latter would be easier.
