Well, there’s nothing like having to eat fake guts and brains with full zombie gusto to make a person want to give up eating flesh!

Cast and crew members from the TV show The Walking Dead have become so grossed out by their jobs (specifically those yummy flesh-eating scenes) that they have turned vegetarian! The cast began its fifth season last week and are eating veg. Such great news!

The Daily Star reported that “on-set meat dishes have been replaced by spinach and avocado salad with garlic mustard vinaigrette, mushroom risotto and black bean and cheese Mexican enchiladas.” A source told the publication that “around 80%” of the food served-up by Craft Services caterers at the five locations in Georgia where The Walking Dead is filmed is now meat-free.” Awesome!

Norman Reedus, who plays wildman Daryl Dixon, told the Daily Star that “I’ve become a vegetarian and I’m kind of bummed about it.” Keep your chin up, Norman, we know you’ll come to love plant-based food, especially with your big heart that cares for animal welfare! The actor has already advocated for a ban on animal testing. We love hearing about celebrities who use their fame to improve things for animals and the environment.

So, when it comes to taking a step on the green side, some people watch a PETA video, which spurs them reevaluate their meat consumption. Some read an enlightening article with startling health facts about dairy to make them give up animal products. Others work four seasons of acting like they’re gorging on other humans to give up meat – hey, whatever will help you make the connection!

Now, we think The Walking Dead cast and crew should check out some of the tasty recipes we have here on One Green Planet!

It makes absolutely no sense to me and is kind of depressing that people will come to this page (which is all about going green and includes vegetarianism and veganism) just to express that they eat meat. It's pathetic. You obviously don't belong here, why are you wasting your time? It's like there's nothing better you could be doing right now than to troll. Go outside.
