Think Being Vegan Isn't Fun? Get Vegucated. | Care2 Causes

At July’s Animal Rights National Conference in Los Angeles, I had the pleasure of catching a sneak peek of the documentary Vegucated . The film is described as “Super Size Me in reverse.” It follows the journey of three meat-loving, I’m-not-sure-what-veganism-really-is New Yorkers who attempt to go vegan for six weeks. Filmmaker (and vegan) Marisa Miller Wolfson put an ad out on Craigslist for volunteers for her project, and after some entertaining interviews, Brian, a “bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time;” Tesla, “the college student who avoids vegetables and bans beans;” and Ellen, “the single mom who prefers comedy to cooking” were chosen as the film’s subjects. Wolfson shows them the ropes of being vegan and illustrates why people are vegan. We watch their struggles, joys and final decision: will they continue on the vegan path?
