Ellie Goulding Elaborates on Reasons for Giving up Meat
Singer Ellie Goulding, who has called herself an “aspiring vegan“, credited the diet for her increased energy levels and body shape. Now, in a recent video for Stylist, Goulding speaks about the negative aspects of consuming meat, stating:
“The main thing is I think we owe it to this planet to just sack off meat for a couple of days a week. Meat is very hard to digest and it’s also, it was also something that was once alive and was living flesh.”
She then talks about how following a plant-based lifestyle is not only about eating vegetables and that similar to meat, flavor often comes from the little things like spices. She states:
“I think there’s definitely a myth that being vegetarian is all about eating vegetables and it being quite boring and tasteless but most of the appeal of meat is the spices and herbs that it’s cooked in. You can basically dress something up the way you would dress up meat and you get the same thing.”
She ends the video by giving an example with a smoothie she makes, which is packed with greens like spinach and kale but also includes cocoa powder, peanut butter and banana in order to give it a more pleasant and enjoyable taste. You can watch the entire video here!
