Martha Stewart Says Vegan Meat Alternatives Are "The Future"
Stewart recently teamed up with top sandwich chain Subway to promote its new Beyond Meatball Marinara Sub in Canada.
“I don’t think it’s a curiosity. I think it is a definite move toward the future” Stewart said of plant-based meat alternatives.
“I think more and more of us are understanding about pollution. I think more and more of us are understanding that, if we became a less meat-consuming people, we would be better off. And many studies are pointing out the fact that this is a more healthy way to live.”
The Beyond Meat sub is available now at Subway stores in the US and Canada. It can be made vegan by ordering without cheese and on vegan bread. A similar sandwich served with dairy-free cheese is available at Subway in the UK.

Martha Stewart’s Vegan Cooking
In a recent interview, she revealed that last year she secretly served her Christmas dinner guests meatballs made from Beyond Meat.
“I didn’t say anything. I just did it—little meatball tidbits—and I didn’t say a thing” Stewart said.
“And not one person knew anything, other than they were eating a tasty meatball.”
Although Stewart states that she does sometimes consume animal products, she previously promoted vegan cooking on her television series, The Martha Stewart Show, which aired for seven years.
