On Point, an NPR syndicated program, hosted a show last Friday which featured Mollie Katzen (author of the original Moosewood Cookbook among many other vegetarian and vegan cookbooks), Isa Chandra Moskowitz of the Post Punk Kitchen, and nutritionist Susan Nitzke. There’s a link there to listen to the whole show.
In response to some of the comments on that page, I would point out that not every vegan is of the irritating evangelist ilk. If some of us can just get people to be more conscientious about their diets and live a more compassionate life towards our animal friends, we’re pretty happy. The fourth guest on that program was journalist/author Kim O’Donnell who writes a standard food column at USA Today. She is just such a convert who believes most people could stand to eat less meat.
