Veg Out With Oprah
It's been a while since I've had the joy of using this forum to dish about celeb gossip, but count on Oprah to provide new blog fodder!
Last week's media headlines screaming that Oprah had "gone vegan" were a bit of a stretch. While she hasn't made any full commitment to a vegan lifestyle, she has begun a "21-Day Cleanse," during which she'll abstain from all animal products, caffeine, alcohol, refined sugars, and gluten. Whew.
Though she explicitly connects this diet plan to weight loss, which I'm certainly not promoting, I'm hoping that Oprah will use her blog chronicling the cleanse to address the ethical and environmental implications of mealtime. We'll see...
My favorite part of this whole thing? The DELICIOUS sounding recipes posted to her site. If you're looking for some culinary inspiration and ways to reduce your meat intake, I'd definitely give these a try. Let me know how they turn out!
