Actress-Singer Shruti Haasan: Veganism "One of the Best Decisions of My Life"
Indian actress and singer Shruti Haasan tweeted today that she has been vegan for over four months and is enjoying the health benefits of the lifestyle. Her tweet read:
“I’ve been vegan and dairy free for the past four months and it’s been one of the best decisions of my life !! #stayhealthy #eatright #happy”
According to a feature in Deccan Chronicle, Haasan adopted a vegetarian diet in 2014, inspired by her father Kamal Haasan, and stated:
“I grew up in the most carnivorous way possible, devouring whatever I could. In fact, beef was my favourite — a medium rare bloody steak for me anytime! But I gave up beef almost a-year-and-a-half ago, and when I came to Chennai this time, I decided to stop eating non-veg after a conversation with my dad. He’s not a vegetarian, but takes the utmost care about what he eats, and it made sense to try this new lifestyle habit. I feel lighter now since I stopped!”
When asked by a follower what the biggest pro of her new lifestyle was, Haasan replied stating, “energy!”
