Russell Simmons Says Vegan Junk Food "Not Bad"

CNN’s Eatocracy snagged an interview with Def Jam pioneer Russell Simmons, where he discussed his experiences as full-time vegan.

Simmons advocates the choice of turning vegan, and addresses the misconception that there is no good vegan food. And worse, no good vegan junk food.

One of the things Simmons recommends is Tofutti Ice Cream Cuties, a soy ice cream sandwich-type dessert that can be found in both regular and special food stores.

“Soy ice cream is not bad. Tofutti Cutie is not bad. You can’t beat a Tofutti Cutie. You frontin’ if you say so,” says Simmons, “you know, the cream is not as creamy – someone might not notice it, or they might if they put them together. But you find the vegan cheesecake, if you digest it, it doesn’t stick in your chest the whole day. It might be a little lighter and taste a little better, but that takes a minute.”

He also warns against trying to go ‘cold turkey,’ saying short term it may work, but in the long run, some may find they need to approach it more gradually.

Wise words, Russell!
