National Vegetarian Week supporters
Everyone is invited to take part, and we’ve loads of celeb supporters getting involved too. From Stephen Fry and BOSH! to Anita Bean, the Curry Guy Dan Toombs, Kim-Joy Hewlett, Anna Jones, ethiopianfoodie Helen Mebrate, Katy Beskow, Kwoklyn Wan and Chris Packham. Here’s what a few of them have to say:
Stephen Fry said: “I think it’s fair to say that there’s never been a better time to try cutting out meat and living a plant-based life. I’ve found it good for health and energy, and if we all joined in … well, wouldn’t the planet be pleased!”
Anita Bean said: “As a lifelong vegetarian I am passionate about the physical and mental benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle and, as a former British bodybuilding champion, living proof that you don’t need meat to build muscle or be successful in sport.”
Anna Jones said: “National Vegetarian Week encourages us, for just one week, to put a spotlight on delicious vegetable-centred meals. We all know we should be eating more vegetables and less meat, fish and dairy, for both our bodies and the planet and now is the time.”
More celebrity supporters are being added all the time and we’ve interviews and quotes from many of them too.
