Kristen Bell: A Day in Her Vegetarian Life
31-year-old actress, Kristen Bell, has been a vegetarian for twenty years. She has previously said that she tries to eat a lot of "colorful food" -- but what does she eat in a typical day?
Kristen tallks to Self about being vegetarian and shares what she typically eats. (Yes, vegetarians can eat tasty food, too!)
On being vegetarian:
"I've been a vegetarian since I was 11, because I couldn't understand why if we didn't eat the dog I should eat a burger. I love animals, and I stand by my values."
What she eats for breakfast:
"So in the morning, I have an apple and, if we have leftover pizza, I scrape the toppings into egg whites. Pizza eggs are better than you can imagine!"
"For lunch, I'll have a big salad and a veggie burger."
"I'm a fan of multicourse dinners. Last night, I made brussels sprouts baked with balsamic vinegar, grapes and walnuts; butternut squash ravioli; and a "garbage disposal" salad, which is everything in the veggie and fruit drawers: lentils, spinach, romaine, blueberries, cucumbers, raspberries, almonds, carrots and avocado. Literally anything. You don't even need a dressing because there are so many tastes."
Vegetarians can have fun with food, too -- those brussells sprouts sound delicious!
