One of many celebrities to have recently gone vegan for their health is actress, Michelle Pfeiffer. And while she’s certainly been vocal about how a plant-based diet has made her feel great from inside out, she made a point to mention in an interview recently that she doesn’t “preach vegan” to her kids.

“I don’t even need to try giving my children vegan food,” she told German magazine, Neon. ”They regularly roll their eyes when their mom tries out something new in the kitchen. I try not to preach though: If my son comes to visit during his uni holidays, I’ll throw a steak in the pan or fry him some chicken.”

While it’s unfortunate that Pfeiffer’s kids are so skeptical of their mom’s healthy diet, hopefully they’ll come around and learn from the unhealthy choices she made in her younger days.

“Cigarettes, coffee, and Coca-Cola were my main sources of nutrition when I was a teenager. I worked at a supermarket checkout and wasn’t really sure what to do with my life. But when you’re young, your body forgives a lot; even a really bad diet,” she said.

It’s never too late to make healthy changes in one’s life, and Pfeiffer is proof of that. The 55-year-old mother of two looks great, and that’s something she doesn’t even need to preach.

    Veganism is not the same as a plant-based diet for your own health. Michelle Pfeiffer is eating a plant-powered diet, she is most certainly not a vegan. Veganism is an ethical stance of non-participation in animal exploitation, and it extends beyond diet.
