Vanity Fair Goes Veg

After lunch with vegan author and health expert Kathy Freston, Vanity Fair reporter goes veg.

When Kathy Freston, “impossibly glamorous” author of Veganist: Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World (coming out next month), had lunch with a Vanity Fair reporter, he went vegetarian. While the VF writer initially turned down Kathy’s recommendation of seitan chimichurri and grilled-kale salad at New York City’s Candle 79, after he actually tasted the food, he declared it “delicious.” Kathy Freston, a vegan health expert and regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, will be featured in the February issue of Vanity Fair, in which she explains the harms of a meat-based diet and discusses her personal journey toward veganism.
