Oprah is championing a new cause — and not one animal will be harmed along the way.

The talk show queen has announced she is going vegan for 21 days as part of a cleanse, on her official blog.

After rereading the book, “A New Earth,” Oprah was inspired to remove meat and animal products from her life for a brief time.

“How can you say you’re trying to spiritually evolve, without even a thought about what happens to the animals whose lives are sacrificed in the name of gluttony?” she wrote.

Oprah said she’s not sure how going vegan will change her life, but is up for the challenge.

“Don’t know if I’m going to feel better or worse, but I’m willing to try to see if my body at least feels differently,” Oprah blogged.

By day two of Oprah’s new vegan life, she was extolling its virtues to her legions of fans.

“Wow, wow, wow! I never imagined meatless meals could be so satisfying,” she wrote.
