Following an article about California politicians pledging to go meatless for at least seven days, Yumi Media releases a statement.

On April 16, Yumi Media, a food website devoted to delivering the latest and greatest in food news, recipes, and products to incorporate into your own healthy lifestyle, responds to an article published on LAist by Krista Simmons regarding the news of California politicians promoting healthier eating habits.

According the LAist article, Vegetarianism has recently become a big thing in California, specifically L.A. The Los Angeles Unified School District started meatless Monday programs and now the cities politicians are getting involved by supporting US VegWeek.

The article goes on to mention how California State Senator Ted Lieu and Assembly member Das Williams are pledging to go meatless for at least seven days to discover for themselves the benefits of making the switch to a vegetarian diet.

Lieu was quoted in the article as saying, “Healthier living is an idea that sells itself and leads to longer lives and an improved quality of life. As a state policymaker, and father of two, I enthusiastically encourage everyone to participate in US VegWeek by treating themselves to more fresh fruits and vegetables that can lead to a longer, healthier life - and lifestyle.”

Yumi Media representative Justin Maas commends the California politicians for making the healthy decision to go vegetarian for a week. “People choose to make the choice to a vegetarian diet every day, and a product like Quorn is always there to help them make the change. These two politicians will hopefully gain attention for their positive decision and encourage others to make the change to a vegetarian diet as well.”
