Could you be Vegan before 6 p.m.?
What's a vegetable-starved population to do? We could follow the example of Mark Bittman, one of the strongest advocates for finding your inner vegetable fan.
Still largely an omnivore as he completed his vegetarian cookbook, the prolific food writer and columnist for the New York Times Bittman says he didn't make the big change in his diet until he (a) saw statistics about the environmental impact of large-scale livestock production; and (b) recognized, as he turned 57, that he had high cholesterol, high blood sugar, sleep apnea, bad knees and 35 extra pounds. "My doctor said, 'I think you should become a vegan,' " Bittman says, referring to a diet that includes no animal products.
"That's when I decided to try the 'vegan before 6' thing," he says. "It worked for me."
