Jessica Simpson takes vegan cooking classes for fiancé

Multi-Platinum recording artist Jessica Simpson has come a long way since the time she wore a shirt that read “Real Girls Eat Meat.”

According to contactmusic.com, Simpson is attending plant-based cooking classes at the Madeleine Bistro in Tarzana, California to “impress” her vegan fiancé, ex-NFL player Eric Johnson.

In addition to learning how to prepare a mean set of BBQ seitan ribs (pure speculation on my part), the 30-year-old Dukes of Hazard actress has also purchased a number of cookbooks. We are not sure if the cookbooks are of the animal-product free variety but hey it's fun to assume that's the case anyway.

Apparently the whole learning how to cook phase is an attempt by Simpson to become a domestic goddess for her soon-to-be husband. How sweet.

Regardless, let’s hope her newfound appreciation for meat-free cuisine isn’t short lived.
