Jumpin’ Jane Takes on Cowboy Cook and Wins!

Written by PETA | October 1, 2010


In honor of Vegetarian Awareness Day, check out the fabulous CNN Eatocracy post listing five reasons to be a vegetarian. TV host Jane Velez-Mitchell wrote it from her vegan perspective in response to the bully blatherings of a Texas chef who seems to have a ribeye where his heart should be. If you ask me, her logical and compassionate comments make his ode to meat look so weak that it could fall over if you blew on it. Our bet is that he has been deprived of good food and would change his opinion if he ever set foot inside Sublime or read the The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook.

Why not take a minute to join in the “great vegetarian debate” and remind everyone that vegan food is not only good for you—and animals—but also tastes great?

    Jane expressed valid points, as have many of those who’ve commented on behalf of a vegan diet. That these topics are being brought to attention so frequently in the press is positive. Knowledge is Power

    i have to agree with Jane especially on the subject of smelling cooked bacon- i have been veg for 6 months( have just about made the transition to vegan) but stopped eating pork about a year and a half ago when i found out about factory farming. When i smell bacon cooking it is so strong it makes me feel quite ill and i ask myself how i ever ate that! I also feel the sadness aswell because i know the life and death that pig had to endure.

    Great job Jane! You never miss an opportunity to speak out for animals and you win this battle with your kind and sensible points. We cherish you!!

    There are some flaws in her commentary. First, There is no evidence that fat, sugar and salt are chemically addictive. Secondly, I don’t know what children she has seen but although many small children do eat a lot of vegetables without fussing, they don’t “naturally shun the taste of meat.” They do require less seasoning than adults.
