“Do you know that the average American eats more than 200 pounds of meat each year?” That's how Martha Stewart kicks off her "Vegetarian Thanksgiving" show — which goes on to point out the problems with factory farming and to provide pointers on some yummy vegetarian Thanksgiving dishes!
Martha brings on special guests Robert Kenner of Food, Inc.
and Eating Animals
author Jonathan Safran Foer to reinforce her message. To be clear, Martha’s not against eating meat altogether — especially as she cooks and eats meat herself. Martha does, however, indict meat from factory farms and encourages eating a less meat-centric diet.
