Mya Challenges Herself With Vegan and Vegetarian Diets

Mya might be known for her singing and dancing abilities, but now the talented lady is making headlines for her plant-based ways.

This month, Mya graces the cover of Women’s Running and discusses her vegetarian diet, in addition to her fitness routines (she loves getting in touch with nature by running outside). As part of her 2010 New Year’s resolution, she went vegetarian for six months. After completing that goal, the singer decided she couldn’t get enough and spent the entire last year embracing the diet full time.

One thing she doesn’t agree with when it comes to eating plant-based? The stigma. As she reveals in the interview, “There’s a stigma attached to vegetarian food. My friends would say, ‘Oh, gosh, that’s no fun.’ But I discovered so many great dishes that I eat habitually now, because they’re delicious.”

If that isn’t enough, Mya tweeted at the beginning of August about a new challenge: going vegan for six months! “1 month of my #vegan challenge successfully completed today. 5 more months to go! Thank u all 4the support! It’s been an awesome journey:)”

Keep up the awesome work, Mya!
