Behind the Scenes of Harpo's Vegan Challenge
A vegan diet is completely plant based, and no animal-based products are eaten at all. If Oprah agrees, Sheri, senior supervising producer Lisa and producer Eric plan to bring in vegan expert Kathy Freston to lead a workshop on giving a vegan lifestyle a go. "It's one week out of their life. And maybe it's not on everybody's to-do list," Lisa says. "But if they do it, maybe everybody will move a little bit more in the direction of compassion towards animals and eating less meat."
Sheri pitches Oprah, who also pledges to take the challenge. "I think that's exciting," Oprah says. "I thought that was a really good idea because there's always pleasure in greater numbers."
