The Daily Beet: Tips, Advice and Stories

New York City’s Super Vegan Publishes Q&A with Rip

Rip recently interviewed with Roseann Marulli of Super Vegan, a web site resource for vegans in New York City. Their conversation spanned everything from Rip’s personal Plant-Strong preferences, his partnership with Whole Foods Market and the Health Starts Here education program, and about what he sees as the real solution to the health care crisis.

“With the health care crisis, the answer isn’t more legislation; it’s not more doctors; it’s not another pill; it’s not another procedure. It literally starts with what’s at the end of your fork. And if people would just look in the mirror and deepen their personal commitment to their health, man—by eating more plants, it’s crazy what we could do with the $2.3 trillion health care costs, 75% of which are related to five diseases that are all food-related.”
