Veggies, Veggies, Everywhere Veggies!

Are we getting close to the tipping point? (See The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference.) It seems everywhere I turn I hear or read the word vegan. This is a wonderful thing. Recently in the media:

Dr. Oz Show: Cowboy Rocco on a 28 day vegan diet. Real life example of how a vegan diet can dramatically improve one’s health!

The Ellen Show: Her “Life” website including video of her vegan chef appearing on her show. Also, Pamela Anderson appeared on Friday and gave Ellen a pair of boots from her new vegan line.

Vegan Chef Tal Ronnen recently appeared on Oprah to promote his new cookbook, The Conscious Cook: Delicious Meatless Recipes That Will Change the Way You Eat.

Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Eating Animals, appeared on Ellen and Larry King Live to discuss his new book. He will also be speaking at the Harold Washington Library in Downtown Chicago on November 18, 2009 at 6pm.

Former Vegetarian and now vegan, Natalie Portman, challenged Top Chef chefs to create a vegan meal.

Alanis Morissette appeared in a recent issue of People magazine to discuss her weight loss using the Eat to Live plan.

And last but not least, Vegan Alicia Silverstone has been talking up her new book, The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet.

Fun stuff!
