The 50-year-old actress stays in shape by sticking to a vegan lifestyle. Talking about her decision to go vegan, she explained: “I never was a big meat eater. My dad hunted. We ate venison and moose meat. I didn’t have a taste for it.” She then decided to give up meat after learning more about slaughterhouses. She later said: “After I removed dairy I felt like a new person. Everything improved. My digestion, my skin, hair. It just doesn’t belong in our bodies.”
Now that she’s vegan, what’s her daily diet like? She said: “I devour avocados, espresso with nondairy creamer and agave. I make homemade peanut butter (with my Blendtec). I make gluten-free pizzas with non-dairy cheese. I enjoy quinoa pasta with sundried tomatoes, garlic, pine nuts and spinach. I make vegan bolognaise.” Her advice for thos who want to start a plant-based diet? She said: “PETA.org has vegetarian starter kits and vegan cook books; just start with steaming or roasting vegetables, a little oil, salt, pepper, lemon and garlic. You can’t go wrong.”
