Tia Mowry-Hardrict is flaunting her vegan lifestyle in a dress made of lettuce!
The actress is the latest celeb to pose for PETA, and in a new ad campaign she’s urging naysayers to “Let Veganism Grow On You.”
“I became a vegan and I was getting bullied a lot on Twitter,” the 34-year-old said. “PETA reached out to me and they said ‘Girl we’ve got your back.’ And they sent so many cooking books and pamphlets and I was like ‘Wow, this is really cool.'”
She went on to say that she wants to become a voice for her community and educate her culture about the benefits of becoming vegan.
“There’s so many great things about being a vegan. I think number one, I’m becoming more conscious about what I’m putting into my body. And I feel great because I’m making healthy and better choices. I feel so amazing after I eat vegetables or greens. I don’t feel sluggish, she said. “The more you learn about the benefits of being vegan, the more you become alive and the more you become aware of why it’s a really great decision. Not only am I helping myself, I’m helping the animals out there, I’m helping the environment—going vegan, I feel great.”
In conclusion she says, “Don’t knock it until you try it!”
