Country music legends Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have reportedly gone vegan.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, a couple from Washington State recently won a lunch with the superstar husband and wife. “Brooks revealed that he and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, have become vegans and, while ordering, asked the server to bring him Steve Wynn’s favorite vegan food,” the site revealed.
ThisDishIsVeg.com reached out to the article’s author, who confirmed the information – adding that he was told Brooks ordered a “vegan Cobb salad.”
That Brooks might be a vegan is not surprising considering the passionate embrace of the plant based life by his employer, billionaire Steve Wynn.
“The notion that you need animal food as protein is one of the great conspiracies of bullshit by the government,” Wynn said in 2010. “Did we not all grow up saying we had to have four glasses of whole milk a day for healthy bones? It’s ridiculous. It’s liquid cholesterol.”
As ThisDish points out, the only thing that makes this info come across as a bit shaky is the fact that Trisha Yearwood is launching a new cooking show on The Food Network titled “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.” According to the website, viewers will learn how to cook “Barbecued Chicken, Uncle Wilson’s Grilled Onions, Chick-less Pot Pie, and Sweet and Saltines.”
Well, three out of those four sound vegan – so here’s to hoping this healthy rumor is true!
