I think it’s safe to say that Ecorazzi has led the way in covering all the “chicken drama” going on in the UK.  In the past, we’ve given props to Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for their relentless efforts in improving the lives of slaughterhouse animals. But now can they take it a step further?

Celebrity Chef’s, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Jamie Oliver have been challenged by Animal Aid, a UK based animal rights organization, to go Veg for one month. 

A spokesman for Animal Aid said:

“Animal Aid was encouraged by the recent campaigns by the high-profile chef, which exposed the terrible plight of farmed animals. However, the chef’s attempts to alleviate animal suffering by promoting ‘high welfare’ production systems can only ever have a marginal impact on their welfare and does not mean the consumer can rest easy. This is why the national campaign group has challenged celebrity chefs Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall to try the veggie diet for a week or a month.”
 

No word yet on whether the twosome will be putting down the mean and picking up the bean, but I sure hope they at least try it.  I’ve been vegan for almost 7 years and it is BY FAR one of the proudest decisions of my life. Plus, not only will they feel the difference, but eating in a new way can only diversify their cooking knowledge and make them stronger chefs.

If you’re teetering on the Fence O’ Veg (it’s made from soy) visit GoVeg.com and get a free vegetarian starter kit.  It’s way easier than you think. I promise!

    Isn’t offal Fearnley-Wittingstall’s claim to fame? Or am I thinking of someone else? Either way, I can’t see him going veg.
