In case you didn't see the Oprah with Michael Pollan and Vegan & Lifestyle author Kathy Freston, there are lots of links on Oprah.com with info from the episode. It was a really interesting special on food, meat manufacturing in America, the vegan diet and more. My friend Marly just read Kathy's book Veganist: Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World and is really inspired to lean (heavily) into a vegan diet. While I'm not ready to read the book because I can't think of giving up all meat and dairy at this point in my life, I am inspired (by the show and what Marly has told me) to lean into it a little. For me this would mean maybe having a "Vegan Night" once a week, or at a minimum, being more mindful of how much meat and dairy we consume on a daily basis and cutting some out wherever I can.
So, leaning into this means I have to plan ahead with some more vegetarian and vegan recipes. I've shared recipes with you, now I'm begging you to share with me. What's your favorite vegetarian or vegan meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner)? Please post your favorites or email me directly. I'll keep you posted on what I make and love so you too can lighten up your meat and dairy consumption.
