Martha goes vegan

Go Martha!
This is all from a press release, but it's pretty interesting.

Martha Stewart "will devote an entire hour-long episode of “The Martha Stewart Show'" (Hallmark Channel) "to the pleasures and benefits of a vegan lifestyle," on March 30.
"Stewart’s groundbreaking “Vegan Show” will feature interviews and cooking demonstrations with some of the country’s most influential vegans, including a sit down with Farm Sanctuary President and Co-Founder Gene Baur, who will inform viewers of the suffering endured by animals raised for food on factory farms," according to a statement.

"To demonstrate just how easy and delicious compassionate living can be, Twitter Co-Founder Biz Stone, who went vegan more than 10 years ago after visiting Farm Sanctuary’s New York Shelter, will help Stewart make vegan fruit (and) nut bars, and former model turned healthy-living guru Kathy Freston will share her tips for adding more vegan meals into your diet, directly from her book "Veganist,'" the statement said.

"The episode will also treat viewers to a heartwarming look at the blissful life enjoyed by the rescued animals who reside at Farm Sanctuary’s bicoastal shelters located" in Orland, Calif. and Watkins Glen, N.Y., the statement said.
Members of Stewart’s studio audience will take home a copy of Baur’s best-selling book, "Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food" (Touchstone), the statement said.
It also said the book "was praised by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. for being 'a compelling testament to the need to civilize this industry and end its radical practices for producing meat, dairy, and eggs.'"
