Martha Stewart Show Goes Vegan with Twitter’s Biz Stone

Last week, the Martha Stewart Show went vegan with the help of two PCRM supporters. Twitter co-founder Biz Stone and 21-Day Vegan Kickstart coach Kathy Freston prepared vegan recipes with Stewart and explained the benefits of a vegan diet.

Kathy Freston on the Martha Stewart ShowIf you’ve ever watched the Martha Stewart Show, it may seem like there’s nothing Stewart doesn’t know how to do, but Stone stumped her. Stewart and Stone made a meatless bourguignon with seitan, which Stewart had never used before. Seitan is a wheat gluten product often used as a meat substitute in vegan dishes.

This wasn’t the first time Stone helped educate a public figure on the benefits of a vegan diet. In 2009, Stone joined PCRM’s Healthy School Lunches campaign and sent a letter to Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., asking for the addition of vegetarian-friendly options in children’s school lunches.

Later on the show, Stewart shared a vegan fruit and nut bar recipe with New York Times best-selling author Freston, who recently released Veganist: Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World. Freston is also a celebrity coach for PCRM’s 21-Day Vegan Kickstart that began April 4.

PCRM’s own Food for Life TV co-hosts Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., and Jill Eckart, C.H.H.C., also have some simple tips on how to transform the recipes in Stewart’s cookbooks into low-fat vegan meals:
