In April 2019, famous beauty mogul and reality TV star Kim Kardashian announced her plans to go vegan. She posted a video on Instagram, displaying her support for vegan businesses and animal rights. Moreover, most of her children also follow a vegan diet except North.
In 2019, Kim explained the motive of going plant-based. It all came down to her experience with psoriasis. It is a condition in which skin cells build up and form itchy, scaly dry patches, most commonly on the knees and elbows. She decided to amend her diet and eat more greens to eliminate these flare-ups. Additionally, she also decided to give up meat due to bad experiences with arthritis as well. According to a tweet, she had said that she eats 'mostly' plant-based.
However, there are certain foods she consumes, which aren't 100% plant-based. For example, Kim is a massive fan of Cheetos, which uses animal enzymes and dairy as a part of cheese flavoring. There are certain times when she likes to have non-vegan foods. For instance, when Kim visits New York City, Kim might have one of her favorite non-vegan ice creams. Other times she might indulge in a vanilla shake from In-N-Out Burger or have some Greek yogurt.
Favorite vegan dishes and daily diet
Kim Kardashian West seems to be loving the vegan life, at least according to her Instagram stories. Some aspects of vegan foods are delicious and healthy. Furthermore, her entire family enjoys a green and leafy meal at least once a day. It goes a long way in preserving health and decreasing calorific value. Numerous Kim Kardashian fans have also implied that she looks thinner than ever now that she has gone vegan. Zucchini chips and a Beyond burger is her favorite vegan meal. Another prominent vegan meal of the Kardashian household is vegan tacos prepared by their cook, Marina. They eat this at least once a week, and it is an absolute superhit. Kardashian persuaded Scott Disick to try the tacos, and even he enjoyed them.
A typical day for the Kardashian West family started with oatmeal and vegan sausage. While most people enjoy the original meat version of sausage, vegan sausage also sounds equally appealing. Given that Kim had shared numerous images of her elaborate kitchen set-up, it is evident that she enjoys a lot of variety in her daily meals. In one of her Instagram stories, she shared a photo of a 'sea-moss smoothie' as a part of her daily diet. It contains essential nutrients like potassium and magnesium, and iodine, a mineral necessary for a healthy thyroid Function.
She seems to have prompted fans to follow her lead in trying out vegan and vegetarian eating. Several fans have revealed that Kardashian is the reason for them converting to veganism. The fact that such a famous global celebrity is vegan speaks a lot about the ongoing movement. Moreover, the importance of animal rights cannot be stressed enough.
What happened to Kardashian-West's fur coats?
The mom of four children has been promoting vegan products for a while. Even before she turned vegan, the importance of plant-based products was stressed on her Instagram. However, Kardashian-West's shift to a vegan lifestyle was spurred on by a fellow celebrity. Former 'Baywatch' actress Pamela Anderson sent Kim a letter encouraging her to ditch the fur coats. Anderson said- "Times are changing. You know I love you, and you can be a hero for all animals as well as a great example for all your beautiful followers." The suggestion indeed had an impact on her lifestyle. Thus, it turned out to be a driving factor in her pursuit to ditch the animal-based. Kim revealed in May 2019 on her Instagram that all her fur coats were cruelty-free.
The star shared a photo of her beloved daughter North, dressed up in a white fur coat. Kim's caption on the post read- "Remember when I wore this! She picked out the same look, lol, but fun fact- I took all of my fave furs and remade them in faux fur." It is indeed quite refreshing to see the star replace all her essential clothing apparel as well. Thus, it can be said that Kim Kardashian West has shifted to a plant-based lifestyle. And not just from a food perspective.
Kardashian West may switch from a plant-based diet to something new in the future, but she seems to be loving going vegan for now.
Over the past few years, a massive list of celebrities has begun to pursue the vegan route. We can genuinely say that the plant-based movement has taken off in full flow. Many of these celebrities have embraced the vegan lifestyle for both health and environmental reasons. The importance of animal rights and the elimination of cruelty towards them is something to address urgently. The fact that celebrities have gone plant-based encourages fans to do the same. Hence, a win-win situation is effectively achieved with this.
