The words "mainstream" and "vegan" haven't always been synonymous. However, in the words of Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin. Lately, I see vegan eating promoted all over the news media and TV. For example, I just saw The Dr. Oz Show do a segment featuring Chicago Firefighters looking to improve their overall health. They were put on a low fat vegan diet.
Fifty-somethings like myself, together with the sixty-something baby boom generation are on a quest to make lifestyle adjustments that will optimize our health. We are rethinking our food choices and priorities. Those of us already committed to the low fat, low sodium, low glycemic index, high fiber, vegan lifestyle and mindset are certainly ahead of the curve. A plant-based diet is no longer on the fringe. Vegan eating has become essential mainstream wellness.
