Recently, NPR featured a two-part series on vegan eating. Kathy Freston, author of The Veganist, was interviewed on one show and chef Bryant Terry, author of The Inspired Vegan and Vegan Soul Kitchen, on another. How to Live to 100, a new vegan cooking show hosted by chef Jason Wrobel, airs on the Cooking Channel.
Vegan eating is slowly gaining in popularity for many reasons. One reason is that people are concerned about their health so are switching from a meat-based diet to a plant-based diet. Another reason is the concern people have for the suffering animals endure on factory farms. The cost to the environment of maintaining a meat-based diet is yet another reason people are going vegan.
Take Action: Let both of these media outlets know you are pleased with their commitment to educating the public about vegan eating. Encourage them to continue their efforts.
