Is Veganism Mainstream Now?

We remember a time when we didn’t even know how to pronounce the word “vegan,” and when many people around us didn’t even grasp the concept of what it meant to not consume any animal products. A favorite scene from that movie “My Big Fat Green Wedding” is when the bride-to-be is explaining to a family member that her fiance is vegetarian and then aunt offers up lamp as an option.

But things have changed. People are more health conscious, not just where their bodies are concerned, but also with the planet. No matter what your eating beliefs are, there’s been considerable evidence recently that reducing the amount of animal products in our diets not only makes us healthier but makes Earth a little healthier, too. With all of this press about veganism and weekday vegetarianism going on, it’s no wonder that many people in the public eye have been flirting with veganism.
