Vegans on NPR

This week, vegan authors, chefs, and nutritionists were featured in NPR’s radio episode, “Vegans Take America.”

Beef is no longer what’s for dinner.

Other guests included Kim O’Donnel, journalist, chef, and author of The Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook; and Susan Nitzke, department chair of nutritional sciences at the University of Wisconsin.
