Oprah Ends Her 21-Day Cleanse, Reflects On New 'Awareness'

Oprah Winfrey’s 21-day cleanse — in which she eliminated caffeine, sugar, alcohol, gluten and animal products from her diet — has come to an end. The 54-year old reflected on the experience in her last post documenting the experience saying, 

“What I know for sure is I’ve reached a new level of awareness about food, eating and the whole process of how it gets to my table. I used to say thanks before a meal out of perfunctory habit. Now I consider it true grace to be able to eat anything in a world of increasing food shortages and starving people.

This has been exactly what we intended: enlightening. I will forever be a more cautious and conscious eater. That’s my commitment for now. To stay awakened.”

It’s great to see Oprah encouraging awareness of food — and the conscious action to appreciate where it comes from. We by no means expect her to continue down this vegan road, but perhaps something in that 21-days will rub off in future meals and considerations. 

What did you think of this challenge? Did Oprah come through on expectations to raise awareness?

This week in the veganverse IV

Wonder why everyone is so concerned with vegan underwear, hot dogs, and how we’ll celebrate Easter? Me too! It’s this week in the veganverse, round four.

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
