With vegan options available everywhere from Starbucks to Ben & Jerry’s to Peet’s Coffee & Tea, House and Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce star Lisa Edelstein recently sent a letter on PETA's behalf calling on Einstein Noah Restaurant Group to get in on the action by adding dairy-free cream cheese to Einstein Bros. Bagels’ menu.

“There are few things I enjoy more than a good bagel in the morning — or any time of the day, really,” writes Edelstein. “That’s why I’m writing to you today urging you to consider adding vegan cream cheese options to your menus so that people who can’t — or won’t — consume dairy foods might still be able to enjoy a good bagel with shmear at your many establishments.”

Edelstein, a vegetarian for more than 30 years, previously teamed up with PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or abuse in any other way” — to strip down for an “Eat Green to Go Green” ad campaign.
