Jaden Smith: “Vegan bacon and vegan sausage are the best things I’ve ever had”
Actor Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, was recently featured in Food & Wine Magazine. The topics included his family-founded company Just Water, everyday sustainability practices and his love of vegan food.
Noting that his favorite snacks are green tea and mangoes, the 19-year-old stated:
“I do cook at home because I can make meals for myself really easily, some brown rice, quinoa, beans, maybe some kale, maybe some herb aioli. It’s a solo effort on my part. Everyone in my family has such different tastes. I don’t want to cook things that aren’t vegetarian. I don’t want to cook meat because I don’t want to breathe it in.”
When asked what he craves when he is back in California, Smith responded:
“Vegan pancakes and vegan butter is the best combination. And vegan bacon and vegan sausage are the best things I’ve ever had. Usually, at my parents’ house, there are vegan pancakes.”
The entrepreneur also had some advice for anyone looking to cut down their meat consumption:
“Just have one day out of the week when you’re a vegetarian. Just follow it at your own pace.”
