Last week, Scientific American released the diary of writer James Byrne as he spent a month trying a vegan diet. The blog post features a month’s worth of diary entries as Byrne discovers vegan mayonnaise, soy cheese, and cruelty-free sausage. In his conclusion, Byrne says that he’s adopted certain changes, such as soymilk and chocolate, and the elimination of eggs and cheese, and will try to follow a plant-based diet in the future. Byrne also admits that he may occasionally consume some animal products while eating out, but that he and his wife are going to abide by compassionate principles at home. The blog post marks yet another mainstream publication discussing veg diets, following recent veg-related pieces from Sunset, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and others.
