Martha Stewart Goes Vegan


If vegan diets are only for a radical minority of eco-conscious foodies, then the queen of traditional American domesticity just took a giant leap to the left.

Today's Martha Stewart Show was dedicated to veganism, featuring appearances by Biz Stone, the famously vegan co-founder of Twitter, and Gene Baur of Farm Sanctuary. If you missed the show this morning, don't fret: Encore showings air at 2 p.m. today and 1 p.m. tomorrow (EST).

Stewart's show has featured vegan cooking in the past; in the above clip, she makes a batch of dairy-free cupcakes. But today's episode pulls the diet even more into the mainstream. As Baur recently told us, it's a way of eating that's really picked up in recent years.
