Oprah's Vegan Challenge

If there's any A-lister in the world that could bring veganism to the masses, it's Oprah -- and with a full show this week dedicated to meat-free diets, she's taking on the challenge.

The talk show host announced that she and 378 members of her staff spent a week following a diet free of animal products, and that her studio will adhere to Meatless Mondays from now on. Also on the show, author Kathy Freston offered tips for vegan food shopping and cooking; Lisa Ling took cameras inside a slaughterhouse; and food guru Michael Pollan offered his perspective.
