Tune in this Tuesday, February 1st, to The Oprah Show to see Oprah and 378 of her staff members try a vegan diet for one week. They won’t be eating any meat or other animal products for a whole week, while Oprah explores the meaning of eating animals.
Lisa Ling takes a trip to a beef processing plant, to take a close look at where our meat really comes from. Will her discoveries be reassuring or disgusting? To also help viewers understand the food industry, Oprah welcome back Michael Pollen, author and food expert.
Although Pollen is not a vegetarian (since last we’ve heard), he’s someone who also took a close look at the same kinds of meat processing plants that Lisa Ling will visit in his book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma. Pollen is a professor and food writer, who’s also the author of Food Rules and In Defense of Food.
