Oprah’s “Vegan Challenge” special aired today — and we’re happy to say that it offered a very positive and inspirational look at what going vegan can do for people. Author Kathy Freston did an admirable job helping to advise the 378 Harpo staffers that signed up for the seven-day experiment (300 ultimately made it to the end) and it’s wonderful to see so many considering making similar changes to their lives.
To our friends at Vegan.com — we hope you’re enjoying the flood of traffic! It’s certainly a great place to start your journey towards a healthier you!
The official Oprah site has also posted some wonderful resources for anyone looking to give going vegan a shot. Most notable are three weeks of easy meals from Kathy Freston’s book “Veganist” — as well as delicious vegan alternatives and a vegan FAQ explaining just what the lifestyle means.

All in all, the staffers that took on Oprah’s vegan challenge lost over 444lbs (and gained 84lbs). We’re also happy to see that “Meatless Mondays” are now a part of the routine at Harpo Production’s cafe.
