Padma Lakshmi grew up eating a vegetarian diet, and now it looks like her baby daughter will as well.

The former model has decided to put herself and her baby back on a vegetarian plan, an important move since she had started to adopt some of our more unsavory customs.

“I grew up a vegetarian,” the Top Chef host said. “Then, because I grew up in the states, I started slowly eating meat. First it was bologna sandwiches, or pepperoni on pizza. As a teenager, [my friends and I] would always go have burgers. I would scarf them down!”

In an interview with People Magazine, Lakshmi revealed that both she and her daughter, Krishna Thea, are eating a lacto-vegetarian Indian diet.

“She’s still breastfeeding, that’s where the lacto part comes in,” Lakshmi explained. “She can’t eat the spicy food that I love since it would be too hard on her system but other than that she’ll eat the foods that I make for her.”

Previously we’ve given Lakshmi flack for promoting fast food burgers and filming commercials for the chain restaurant Hardee’s, but we applaud this latest move to stick to a vegetarian diet. Keep up the good work!

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
