Scarlett Johansson, American actress, is best known for her acting abilities and beautiful body, but the curvaceous 29 year-old apparently has enviable vegan baking skills, too.
The “Avengers” actress relied on a raw vegan diet to slide into her costume to play the part of a Russian spy. She said about her preparation for the role, “The thing is right before we started I was lifting all these weights and eating raw vegan. But the only reason I was doing that was to fix my previous diet because that was a Paleo diet. So I’ve had the extreme of everything. Because when you’re training you rely on your trainer to help you lose muscle and gain muscle and whatever it takes to change your body. So I’m always following some crazy regime. And after lots of fighting and training and raw vegan food you can fit into a cat suit.”
Johansson continues to dabble in veganism, prefering vegan baking over the alternative. In a 2011 interview, she said, “I like to cook, major baker. Yeah, this past summer I got into vegan baking so I was baking up a storm — breads, cakes, muffins. I love to bake.” Apparently her vegan baking is so scrumptious it brings men to their knees. “My signature baked good is a vegan banana chocolate chip muffin – I can modestly say I have had marriage proposals from those,” she said.
It’s wonderful Johansson is dabbling in veganism and bringing attention to the lifestyle, but it would be even better if she stuck to a plant-based diet permanently.
