Mark Bittman Confesses to Veganism Before 6

I have always loved Mark Bittman, his cookbooks and his articles. But this below is a highlight! I love his take on eating vegan until dinnertime. “If you eat like a vegan until dinnertime, you can protect your health and help save the planet; how we eat — and certainly what we eat — has a real impact on both our bodies and the Earth.” from the NPR article This is something really anyone can do and it benefits everyone!

Mark Bittman has a straightforward way of sticking to Michael Pollan’s mantra from In Defense of Food(“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants”): He’s a “VB6 — Vegan Before 6,” he tells NPR. Bittman has lost 30 pounds by eating fruits, vegetables, and grains before splurging on “the food I love most — but with a little restraint” at dinner. He also congratulates himself for reducing greenhouse gases, however minimally, by moderating his consumption of the 10 billion animals the U.S. produces in a year. NPR follows Bittman’s dissertation with a recipe for cassoulet that calls for a pound of Italian sausage. Must be dinner.
