Ellen Pompeo: “My whole family has gone completely vegan”
A doctor’s advice
A doctor’s visit is what prompted the change, with Pompeo stating:
“I just went for my yearly appointment a couple of weeks ago and [Dr. Kristi Funk] told me about her book [Breasts: The Owner’s Manual]. Since then my whole family has gone completely vegan.”
Pompeo added that she was inspired to make the change when she learned that Dr. Funk had “turned her three kids completely vegan.”
When asked how the transition has been, she responded:
“It’s super fun. I don’t think it’s tricky at all — it’s actually easier because meat you have to cook it before it goes bad. Grains and lentils and rice and beans, everything’s in the pantry already. You just have to get vegetables, but vegetables stay good for a week — and I think we all feel better.”
