Elizabeth Gillies is known for playing Jade West on Nickelodeon’s “Victorious,” but did you also know she lives a healthy lifestyle by committing herself to veganism?
At 19-years-old, Gillies is setting quite an example, not only on the small screen, but also with her eating habits. She is teaching others how to eat and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
As someone who is a vegan and stays away from gluten (she’s allergic), Gillies revealed it wasn’t always easy saying no to meat and other foods she loved.
“In the beginning it was hard, now I’m pretty used to it. I still constantly crave burgers, cheese and all the foods I can’t have, but I’ve learned to live without them,” she told Healthy Hollywood.
She doesn’t hide her cravings either. Here’s one tweet showing how much she craves comfort food, “I want French fries & a black & white milkshake right now. #fastasy #nevergonnahappen.”
Gillies also tweeted, “Stared deeply & amorously at a piece of funfetti cake for a solid 40 minutes tonight. #ulookedamazing #wishicouldveeatenu #itsnotuitsme.”
It’s good to see she sticks to her diet and for those who crave, like the actress, and struggle with their vegan diets, Gillies gives the following advice, “Don’t cut everything out at once. Gradually eliminate foods out of your diet, and see how you feel. Make sure to find ways to balance out your diet so that you’re getting all the nutrients you need.”
