barrymoreNone of us can be virtuous all the time, and when we do manage to resist every single temptation that life throws our way, what fun is that?!? For staunch vegetarians, they commonly discuss how their lifestyle choice forces them to be a bit more creative in the kitchen and willing to expand their culinary palate. Compared to mainstream eaters, vegetarians are more likely to sample a vast range of unique (and possibly) heirloom fruits and vegetables as well as diverse grains and alternative protein sources, contributing to that much-touted skin glow which is better than anything you could get from a cream, lotion, potion, or toxin-filled needle. But what happens when veggies succumb to the call of comfort eating?

For Drew Barrymore, she acknowledges that just because she consumes no meat doesn’t automatically mean that she is a healthy eater – in fact, she caves into her comfort food desires by indulging in peanut butter and banana sandwiches or homemade macaroni and cheese when the mood strikes. She tells Contact Music that she is definitely a picky eater due to her vegetarianism and is “like a typical American teenager when it comes to (her) favorite foods.”  This is a far cry from the born-again-meat-eating stance that Barrymore took back in 2002 when she confessed that she was tired of imposing restrictions on herself, justifying at that point in her life that at least she still wasn’t consuming “a ton of meat” or wearing “a ton of leather.”

There have been other high profile vegetarians throughout the years who have on occasion reverted back to semi-vegetarian status for varying reasons, including currently macrobiotic musician Sting who told The Miami Herald in the late 1990s: “We built an organic farm. Part of animal husbandry is that they breed. And you can’t keep them all. So I started eating meat again. But I only eat the animals I raise….I won’t eat an animal that comes from a slaughterhouse.” Now, Tiffani Thiessen has stepped forward with the admission that despite her long history of being a vegetarian, her current pregnancy has radically altered what she chooses to dine on now. She informed PEOPLE that, “Crazy enough, I had a steak before I left tonight and I would never have eaten one before. One day I just woke up and craved meat.”
