28-year-old country music star, Carrie Underwood, has made the switch from vegetarian to vegan. Carrie has been vegetarian since she was 21 and says that she made the switch for health reasons.
Carrie told the women on Australian talk show, The Circle why she ditched dairy and animal products: "I recently made the switch to vegan because I’m actually kind of lactose intolerant." Pretty good reason, right?
Carrie went on to say that she became vegetarian at a young age because of what happened to animals on her family's farm. She added that growing up in Oklahoma made it "almost impossible to be vegetarian, so when I moved away — I was about 21 — I became a vegetarian."
Whatever she's doing, she's looking pretty amazing!
