Vegan actress and The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik is smart on and off-screen! The actress sat down with PETA and talked about her new ad, vegan parenting, and the positive health effects that she’s experienced since going meat-free.
In her interview, Bialik talked about the book, Eating Animals, by Jonathan Safran Foer, and how big of an effect it had on her decision to go vegan. Bialik said she always felt guilty about eating meat, even as a child. Since going vegan, her guilt is completely gone.
Like all vegans, Bialik gets asked the constant question of “What do you even eat?” She provided some helpful information for a reply when people ask. She suggested mentioning the foods that naturally do not contain meat or dairy, such as pasta marinara, salads, Mediterranean dishes, and Asian foods.
As for the positive health effects Bialik is experiencing, she no longer deals with seasonal allergies or sinus infections, pointing out that she had an allergy to dairy before cutting it out of her diet.
