Don’t Reject Animal-Free Foods that Resemble Animal Products!
The following letter appears in the June/July/August 2020 issue of All Animals, published by The Humane Society of the United States.
To the Editor:
I just finished reading your excellent March/April/May cover article “Building a better bite” by Karen E. Lange. I agree that getting people to shift from animal-based to plant-based foods requires the availability and promotion of plant-based foods that resemble what people already like to eat. I’ve never believed we should reject animal-free foods that resemble animal products. Moving people from the familiar to the unfamiliar involves making the unfamiliar as “familiar” as possible. This is the psychology of transition, of the progress we’re seeing toward plant-based food choices. Thank you for the inspiration!
