No joke — James Cromwell is one of my very, very favorite vegan celebs!! Cromwell is the real deal and so excited about leading a greener, more compassionate life.
In a new interview on TheGreenGirls.com, James says:
“I made a lifestyle change in 1975 when I became a vegetarian, and in ‘94 when I became a vegan.If everybody would do that, we’d save a lot of water, a lot of land use, a lot wasted energy bringing protein to people through animals, a lot of suffering and a lot of greenhouse gases. If people would just cut out meat for one meal a week, and then one day a week, and then maybe one week a year, they could make an incredible difference.”
As far as how he did, Cromwell said:
“It was a process of educating myself. You have to make a choice, which is different than making a decision. When you make a decision, you often leaves things out that are important. You have to get a protein source. You have to change the way you eat, the sugars you consume, the carbohydrates you consume. In other words, you become knowledgeable and sophisticated about what your particular body needs.”
