The 5 Most Eye-Popping Quotes from Cory Booker’s VegNews Interview

Every time Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) talks about begin vegan, VegNews is on it. When in 2018 Booker posted an Instagram photo of a whole-roasted cauliflower, the outlet was sure to include part of Booker’s caption: “I find myself more and more rejoicing in the delicious simplicity of a whole food, plant-based diet.”

Or there was this gem: “Finding my way to optimal health is not a destination as much of a mindful journey.”

Booker spoke exclusively to VegNews after announcing his presidential campaign, and the conversation did not disappoint. NTK Network scoured the conversation so you don’t have to and put together a list of these notable quotes from Booker’s conversation:

1. Eating eggs no longer aligns with Booker’s spirit.

“I think so many of our likes and dislikes are childhood memories or family traditions, and you associate the foods you’re eating often with such good emotions—but now, suddenly, eating those eggs for me was something that didn’t align with my spirit, and I could feel it.”

2. Booker says the planet can’t sustain people with meat-eating diets.

“The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact.”

3. There’s an “industrial pork industry” and China is in cahoots with them.

“China is treating us now like a colonized country by outsourcing all of their pollution onto the United States. It’s just not sustainable as their demand for these products grows and the power of the industrial pork industry grows. It’s trampling the rights of others.”

4. Booker claims there are “incredible vegan cheese shops” in the U.S.

“I’ve seen incredible vegan cheese shops popping up across the country, and my friends who are lovers of cheese just can’t tell the difference.”

5. Every single friend of Booker’s posts their meals on Instagram. #nofilter

“I’m like every American: I want to talk about food. We love talking about food, and we love posting our food on social media. I’m not sure if any of my friends aren’t posting on Instagram something they love to eat.”
