Quantcast Vegetarian StarMoby: Boca Burger And Tofurky Are Gateway Drugs


If you haven’t picked up the latest (July/August 2008) issue of Vegetarian Times yet, you’re missing out. (Or if you still have the mag in your “inbox” pile of mail you haven’t read yet.)

Moby’s got an interview featured in the Q & A Section where he talks about his mommy helping him go veg (How sweet.)

Moby is the former co-owner of Teany, a vegetarian restaurant and tea shop in New York and talked about his love of the eatery.

“What I was most proud of about Teany was that on any given Saturday we would be filled with people and a very small percentage of them were vegetarian. So if you went to Teany and you were a vegetarian or vegan, you would be perfectly happy. But if you went to Teany and you were a meat eater, you would also be happy.  Regardless of what some people’s feelings might be about fake meat, it is a really good way of getting meat eaters into vegetarianism. It’s a gateway drug.”

    Fate meat is truly a gateway drug! I got my mom to stop eating burgers, ground beef, hotdogs and chicken nuggets by introducing her to vegan versions! Now she’s almost totally veggie.
