Russell Simmons: "Don't Eat Anxious Sick Sad Animals"
Simmons brought his daughters there for a meal, and was soon tweeting his thoughts on why diet is so important. He wrote, “U are what u eat. Don’t eat anxious sick sad animals (t)hat were born into suffering & stuffed w/ poison #goVegan”.
If you’re unsure what he means by sick sad animals who are being stuffed with poison, check out this information on factory farming and the heavy use of antibiotics due to overcrowding.
The hip hop mogul also brought up the issue of food deserts, and how some areas don’t have access to healthful foods. He wrote, “Everybody can’t come to bev hills we need @veggiegrill in the hood #goVegan.”
And to top it all off, Simmons let everyone know that for the environment, it doesn’t get worse than beef. He tweeted, “The greatest cause of globalwarming/2x all planes trains and automoblies put together? =The cows alone”.
Let’s see. Animals. People. The planet. We think in just a few tweets, he covered it all.
So, what did he and his family eat while out at Veggie Grill? According to Simmons, they ate a “big mac w/ cheese”, “smothered fried chicken plate& steamed kale miso dressing”, “Fo-beef barley” and “fried fo-chicken mash cauliflower & steamed kale w/ ginger”.
In fact, he loves the chain so much, he mentioned he wished he could “buy in”. With reviews like those, this east coast girl is feeling quite jealous.
