Two hundred and thirty-six

Veganism is more widespread than you might think.  The more I talk about the topic, the more people I find out are vegan.  Not everyone preaches the lifestyle.  And most vegans, like Sheri from my interview two days ago, try their best to be vegan, although occasionally stray.  There are also quite a few vegan celebrities, although I’m sure it’s easier to be vegan when you have a personal chef!  (Just a joke – I know not everyone famous has a personal chef!)

Celebrity Vegans (from happycow.net – see the website for more)

These are just a few that I knew, and there are many more celebrity vegetarians.

Some celebrities have been very vocal about their food choices and the ethical decisions that go along with them.  Here are a couple of interviews about how these particular celebrities feel about their choice to become vegan:

  1. I wonder if people don’t talk about it as much so it doesn’t seem like they’re preaching. I am so much more aware of what people eat now, and I want to say something, but I feel it’s not my place to lecture. I will share information when the situation feels right, but I don’t want to have a ‘holier than thou’ attitude about eating vegan. Because no one likes to be told what they’re doing is ‘wrong’. There are definitely times when I want to say something and hold back. Maybe that’s wrong of me, I don’t know. But it took me a while to get where I am, and I think more success happens when the path is organic and not forced.

    This month has been so interesting for me to read too. Thanks Linds!

    • I don’t think it’s wrong of you. I agree more success happens when the path is organic and not forced. Thanks again for helping me out and I’m glad you’re enjoying it!
