A Toronto vegan blabs on about crafting, food, and her life in general.

Spreading the news.

Vegan bloggers all over the place are posting about Oprah's 21-Day Cleanse diet, so I thought I'd jump right in and help pass along the story. For 21 days, Oprah is going vegan (and wheat-free, caffeine-free and a buncha other -frees) and is posting about her experiences on her website. Some people are talking about how this is the best thing to happen to veganism - sure, the publicity is great, and the awareness it brings to the health and ethics aspects of veganism is awesome - but I'll wait to see how the next 3 weeks go before getting too excited.

I agree that we should wait and see how it goes for her, but even if a fraction of her viewers go vegan for 21 days that can make a big difference. I think this, the move toward greener lifestyles, and the new life Skinny Bitch got thanks to Posh Spice are the best things to happen to veganism, ever.

You're probably right. I'm just a cranky, pessimistic nay-sayer :)

I am also so skeptical about Oprah, but if it were my own mom or sister who wanted to try a 3-week vegan cleanse, I would be kind of excited and very supportive. So I've been trying to be more cautiously optimistic about this whole Oprah thing. It's hard though!
