Drummer for the Beatles, Ringo Starr takes center stage in a featured piece on Variety.com. While the piece focuses largely on Starr’s career and life story, we were pleased to find a little plug for vegetarianism tucked in there, too.

When it comes to his personal health, Starr believes a vegetarian diet is where it’s at.

“I believe that helps,” he said in the Variety piece. “I also work out most days.”

Starr also meditates regularly, a practice he picked up in the late 1960s when the Beatles were introduced to the teachings of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, also an avatar to the Lynch Foundation, which “teaches the restorative powers of transcendental meditation to school kids and war vets alike.”

Considering the health problems of his youth, and his devotion to peace and love, a vegetarian diet certainly reflects Starr well.
