World Vegan Day: Kareena Kapoor Khan to Aamir Khan, meet Bollywood stars who are vegans or vegetarians – Gulf News By admin November 27, 2021 InLifestyle Share Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp 1 of 12 Veganism is a lifestyle that excludes meat, dairy and basically all animal-derived products in one’s life. Its proponents, which include Bollywood stars, claim major changes in mind and body. Here’s a look at some celebs who follow the path. John Abraham, one of Bollywood’s fittest actors, is also an animal lover and a vegan. The lack of animal-based protein doesn’t seem to have affected his fitness goals at all.

She said on social media: “I was never heavy on a non-vegetarian diet but I took a call during lockdown. It was actually something that happened organically. It’s been six months and I’m good, guilt free and I feel physically strong as well,” she said, adding: “For many years I wanted to go vegetarian but breaking habits are the toughest thing to do. My journey with Climate Warrior taught me a lot of things and I just didn’t feel like eating meat anymore.” The major difference between most vegetarians and vegans is that vegetarians may consume dairy products such as milk or curd, or honey from bees which vegans don’t consume. Vegans usually have nut-based ‘milk’ such as almond milk, cashew milk or coconut milk.

He was quoted as saying by a media outlet, “It only took one video of animals suffering and dying in the meat industry to convince me to go vegetarian.

When she became health conscious, she looked to cutting out food groups including meat. But then her intolerance for dairy became more pronounced. The result? She hasn’t touched milk in years. In an interview, she said, “I stopped eating meat four years ago. What has happened now is that I have stopped consuming milk and milk products.” Image Credit: Insta/sonamkapoor 8 of 12 Another meat lover turned vegetarian, Kareena Kapoor Khan began to eschew non-vegetarian delicacies when she got into a relationship with Shahid Kapoor. And even after they broke up, the practice stayed on. Reportedly, she also tried to convince her husband Saif Ali Khan to go vegetarian, but things didn’t quite work out.

The ‘Haider’ actor was given a book by his father, legend Pankaj Kapur, called ‘Life if Fair’ by Brain Hines which he was reading on the plane back in 2003.
