Media mogul Oprah Winfrey recently embarked on a 30-Day Plant-Based Challenge, where she eats one plant-based meal per day, and has been sharing her journey with her 17.2 million Instagram followers. Earlier this month, Winfrey interviewed Suzy Amis Cameron—vegan advocate and the wife of director James Cameron—on her television segment “SuperSoul Sunday” wherein Amis Cameron discussed her new book The OMD Plan, which advocates shifting one meal per day to being fully plant-based to benefit the environment, human health, and animals. After the segment aired, Winfrey took to social media to promote eating plant-based foods to her 42.6 million Twitter followers. During her 30-Day Plant-Based Challenge, Winfrey is documenting her vegan meals, recipes, and adventures every day on her Instagram stories and through a food diary posted to O Magazine online. Thus far, Winfrey has enjoyed a variety of vegan meals prepared by chef Raymond Weber, including vegan butternut squash risotto with field mushrooms, sweet potato curry with rice, and grilled cauliflower steaks with garlic tahini sauce. Halfway through the challenge, Winfrey sampled roasted heirloom pepper soup and vegetable bruschetta, stating, “Another day, another meal. We’re helping to contribute to healthiness on the planet.” On day 16, Amis Cameron visited Winfrey’s kitchen to help her prepare vegan spring rolls made with vegan eggs.
