Oprah goes vegan (again)!

Posted: January 31, 2011 in MeatlessMonday, vegan

Oprah and her staff went vegan for a week, and an episode about the experiment will air tomorrow.  This isn’t the first time that Ms. Winfrey has dabbled in veganism, and I am interested to see if this “challenge” will stick, with The Divine Miss O or with any of her staff.

I think that anything that encourages the American public to think about their complicity in the modern food system, especially animal agriculture.  I think that phrasing the experiment as a “challenge” might be misleading or off-putting to non-vegans, but it remains to be seen how the show portrays veganism.

So, I will be live-tweeting the entire show with my reactions!
