Outspoken vegan advocate, Mayim Bialik, continues to preach the good veggie-lovin’ word. The actress recently spoke to the Jewish Vegetarian Society and Vegan Society about livin’ la vida vegan and mentioned how her compassionate lifestyle goes perfectly with her faith.

“There is a strong emphasis in Judaism on humane maintenance and use of animals,” said Bialik. “We respect other creatures and, of course, Adam and Eve were vegetarian before the Fall and exile from Eden. Tikkun Olam lends itself to us using our body and lifestyle to do our part to repair the world. For more, veganism is very consistent with that.”

Bialik also said that when people go vegan, they can “start to see the personal, community, and global benefits.”

With Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur coming up, Bialik and the two vegan organizations are hoping to inspire members of the Jewish community to adopt a vegetarian diet, or at least embrace more plant-based options.

You can watch Mayim Bialik as Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit TV show, “The Big Bang Theory.” Also keep an eye out for her first cookbook, “Mayim’s Vegan Table,” coming out in early 2014. Check out the rest of her interview here.

The two sides claim to both have the “health and well-being of animals” in mind in this partnership, but one likely said “after profitability” under their breath.
