Gordon Ramsay Irks Vegans!
Chef, Restaurateur and now allergic to vegans……
Gordon Ramsay, a Michelin star chef, often makes it to the headlines due his culinary prowess and TV shows. And yet again, he’s in the news, this time though, for wrong reasons.
Well known for his minced beef Shepherd’s Pie, this outspoken chef is known for not mincing words. When asked by a Twitter fan recently if he has any food allergies, pat came his reply, ’Vegans’! This certainly did not go down well with vegans, who reacted sharply to his insensitive comments .
Gordon Ramsay’s comments come at a time when veganism is on the rise the world over. No longer considered a celebrity fringe diet, it is associated with life-changing health benefits. Endorsed by professional athletes and medical doctors, a plant-based diet has long-term positive effects not only on our health but that of our planet.
Most global brands like Ben & Jerry’s and Guinness are well on their way to embracing this lifestyle switch by introducing vegan ice-cream and vegan beer to their established product-line. No wonder then that Gordon Ramsay’s comments are extremely inopportune, to say the least!
Go vegan for your health!
