That’s right: Robert St. John is giving up meat, eggs, and dairy products. He stopped eating meat for a month last year in September—but, he admits, he still consumed lots of cheese, milk, and cholesterol bombs (eggs to you). But this year he’s one-upped himself by vowing to be vegan—at least through this month. Perhaps his decision was in response to a little playful nudging from PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. Maybe he ruminated over the many reasons why a vegan diet is best for every living being and the Earth. Or maybe he just wanted to drop some weight. (As Newkirk said, “You might as well staple all that cheese to your stomach and thighs and use a brush to coat your arteries with it.”)
He’s a brave man, given his really bad, bad, bad dietary addictions, but I bet that St. John will find that vegan living is a piece of mouthwatering salmonella-free cake.
