US Meat Consumption on Decline

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, for the first time on record, U.S. per-capita meat consumption has declined for four consecutive years, dropping 6% between 2006 and 2010.

Part of the decrease may be due to the rising cost of meat. But news source Voice of America (VOA) notes that there is also a cultural shift in which meat-free eating is gaining acceptance. VOA reports, "Something... is changing in the food landscape. This year, for the first time, chefs named vegetarian entrees as a top-10 hot trend in an annual survey by the National Restaurant Association."

Market research firm Packaged Facts found that meat-free meals are growing in popularity, especially among college students who then carry meat-free eating habits into their adult years. Environmental researcher Lester Brown of the Earth Policy Institute notes that, “Young people today are just not so meat-and-potatoes oriented as earlier generations were."

Elite Runner Fiona Oakes

Fiona Oakes holds several impressive athletic records. She was one of only a handful of competitors to finish the grueling Marathon des Sables -- a 156 mile run across the sand dunes and rough terrain of the Sahara Desert.

Most recently, Fiona won the women’s portion of the UVU North Pole Marathon. She not only won the race for the women's division, she also crushed the course record by 44 minutes, despite what was reported as the worst conditions in the race’s history. Imagine running 26.2 miles in -18°F weather in snow that was sometimes waist-deep.

Fiona stopped eating meat at age 6 and became vegan as a teenager. She works as a fire fighter and runs a farmed animal sanctuary where she cares for 400 animals. Up before dawn and working till 8 pm, she still makes time to train, saying, "The thought of saving the lives of innocent animals is my main motivation to be so committed and sacrifice so much for my training. To lead by example and to show people that a vegan diet is in no way prohibitive to sporting excellence. If by doing this I can convince just one person (hopefully more) to consider a vegan lifestyle, then this is all the reward I need for my efforts."
