E! Online Dips Feet into Veganism

By Crystal Tremblay, Guest Contributor

E! Online is venturing into the vegan world lately as they have been covering some vegan stories. One such story is Chef Tal Ronnen’s 5 Rules for Going Vegan. You can check out the link to read in detail, but the 5 tips look like this:

  1. Start slow
  2. Vegan doesn’t mean boring
  3. Consume superfoods
  4. How to get protein
  5. Understand the benefits

Having catered Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi’s wedding as well as creating the menu for Oprah’s 21-day cleanse, Ronnen is the go-to vegan chef in Hollywood.

The other story, The Best Vegan Meat Substitutes to Grill this Summer, highlights brands such as Tofurky, Field Roast Grain Meat Company, and Quorn, among others. It is amazing that veganism is becoming more mainstream; the only negative about these articles is that they are touting it as “trendy” and “celeb inspired.” The vegan community knows this is not the case, but hey, if Ellen DeGeneres uses her celebrity to get people to commit (by commit I mean for life, not a summer trend) to veganism, more power to it.
