Michelle Pfeiffer Makes the Vegan Switch!

The number of A-list stars adopting the healthy and compassionate lifestyle just keeps on growing! They include Ozzy Osbourne, Kristin Bell, Russell Brand, Ellen Degeneres and Ben Stiller.

One of the newest celebrities to talk about their new vegan diet is Michelle Pfeiffer.

Pfeiffer, 54, recently opened up to Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN about her decision to become a vegan to protect her health.

“My father died from cancer, and the older you get, there’s a lot of disease around you. And you see people struggling with chronic disease. You see people dying with terminal illnesses,” she told Gupta on “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

The Oscar-nominated actress revealed that her decision came about after watching CNN’s “The Last Heart Attack,” which discussed plant-based diets as a solution to preventing chronic diseases. She was inspired by Bill Clinton, who committed to the plant-based diet to reverse dangerous heart problems.  A self-proclaimed “foodie,” Pfeiffer said she was hopeful seeing his example. “Okay, Bill Clinton loves food, so there must be something to [veganism] that’s making him stick to it. And also, he’s smart, so he’s not going to do something unless he really thinks there’s some science behind it.”

She also read Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure.

“I just felt like…there was science behind it. And, you know, it was sort of irrefutable. … I couldn’t not listen to it.”

Pfeiffer’s #2 reason for the new diet? “Vanity is right under there,” she admits, “but I have to say that it’s a close second with wanting to live long.”

Bravo Michelle Pfeiffer, on your most wise and glamorous decision to be vegan!

There are lots of veg starter kits and recipes online for all folks, famous or not.

Bill Clinton is Vegan!

To update our previous post from over a year ago, former President Bill Clinton made the full transition to veganism and cut out fish as well. No more consuming meat, dairy, or any other animal products for him. Bravo!

Before his lifestyle change, he had to undergo two heart procedures. Now, he’s lost over 20 pounds and says he feels great!

Hope he doesn’t take any more bites of turkey at Thanksgiving!  Of course, if he’s craving for his traditional holiday fare, he could always order the One Veg World Vegan Turkey with our vegan mushroom gravy. 😉

Wishing him a long life full of health and happiness!

PS: Remember, dear readers, you can win your own whole vegan turkey by visiting our restaurant and entering our holiday raffle anytime between now and December 22.

Bill Clinton almost vegetarian!

Wow! Former US President Bill Clinton is eating a primarily vegetarian diet (almost vegan!) to try and stay healthy for his future grandchildren! Watch the video.

He was encouraged by his daughter Chelsea, a vegan herself, to adopt the vegan diet to lose weight.

In the interview for Yahoo News and the Huffington Post, he said: “Since 1986, several hundred people who have tried essentially a plant-based diet, not ingesting any cholesterol from any source, has seen their bodies start to heal themselves — break up the arterial blockage, break up the calcium deposits around the heart. 82 percent of the people who have done this have had this result, so I want to see if I can be one of them.”

Bravo Mr. Clinton!
