Jennifer Lopez has joined fellow A-listers like Anne Hathaway and Joaquin Phoenix and adopted a vegan diet!
The 44-year-old actress and recording artist has always been incredibly health conscious, but recently revealed that removing animal products from her diet has left her feeling better than ever and she would encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. In an interview with New York radio station Z100 Lopez said, “You do feel better. I do recommend the vegan diet because you wake up and feel great!”
J.Lo briefly attempted to adhere to a vegetarian lifestyle several years ago, but in an effort to stay healthy and fit, she has now chosen to avoid all animal products. Lopez explained, “Being vegan, it’s basically no diary, no meat, everything is plant based and from the ground.” “Jenny from the Block” has certainly come a long way since she gave vegan television host Ellen DeGeneres a year’s supply of Omaha Steaks.
Lopez did admit to struggling a bit on her new diet, saying, “Butter is the one thing I miss!”
Luckily for Ms. Lopez, there’s Earth Balance! Or, for a healthier alternative, coconut oil tastes fabulous on toast.
