If Oprah Can Do It......
For the next 21 days, in an effort to eat more consciously, Oprah is going vegan. She will be eliminating caffeine, sugar, alcohol, gluten and animal products from her diet for 21 days. She has already exclaimed "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."
Raising animals for meat is one of the most environmentally destructive practices, according to a 2006 report published by the United Nations. The report calls raising animals for food “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global."
If Oprah can do it, don't you think you can too? Who is ready to try out the vegan lifestyle?
