Aimee Teegarden kicks vegetarian diet up one notch now ‘99% vegan’

Aimee Teegarden, star of NBC’s sports drama Friday Night Lights, has lived meat-free for her entire life, now the 21-year-old actress is also kicking the dairy habit by going vegan “99%” of the time.

Not sure how that calculation was determined but it sounds good to us.

Teegarden divulged her choice to go sans milk and cheese to MNN.

"I've gotten rid of all dairy," explained Teegarden who also appears in Scream 4. "I feel a lot better, I feel cleaner, and ethically it makes me feel a lot happier going to sleep at night.”

Friday Night Lights ended its run this past February but fans of the young vegetarian vegan actress can look forward to seeing her as the lead role in Disney’s upcoming film Prom.
