29-year-old Carrie Underwood has been a vegetarian for seven years, but now says she's "95 percent vegan."
Carrie talked to Self about her move to veganism, love for food, animals, and more. Here are some of the highlights.
Carrie on going vegan:
"I love eating and talking about food. I've been a vegetarian for seven years. But after seeing a friend who looked amazing and had recently gone vegan, I thought, What's holding me back?"
On knowing where her food comes from:
"Now I'm 95 percent vegan. Sometimes you're at a birthday party and there's cake and...you know, you can't resist. My veganism is based on a concern about where my food is coming from. In my perfect world, I'd have webcams wherever food is processed so I'd know how clean it is."
Carrie on meat:
"I'll never eat meat again, because I look and feel better without it, but if I could raise my own cows and chickens and produce my own eggs and cheese, it would be awesome! The food would taste better, because the animals would be happy."
