Ellen and Simpson Talk Veganism

This week, Ellen DeGeneres discussed her love of Gardein with Jessica Simpson on her talk show.

Vegan television personality Ellen DeGeneres used her daytime talk show to expound on her love of faux-meat company Gardein in an episode that aired Tuesday. When her guest, singer and fashion designer Jessica Simpson, amiably teased DeGeneres about how her vegan diet restricts her from eating Tex Mex-style ground beef—which Simpson called “the good stuff”—DeGeneres used the opportunity to educate the singer about the wonders of fake meat. “They actually make really good stuff that tastes just like beef called Gardein and it tastes exactly like it,” DeGeneres says, promising to send the skeptical star some samples. DeGeneres first featured Gardein’s plant-based products in a December 2009 broadcast of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, calling it “the greatest product that came along.”
