I like to know what the animal was eating before I eat it
I’m not [a vegan]. I was for a couple of years and I ended up getting anemic. I regret going on a talk show and talking about it—I was young and impressionable and trying to be funny and I said something about how when I stopped it was great. But it wasn’t good, health wise, for me. I wasn’t doing it right, I think. I’ve incorporated the reason that I became a vegan in the first place into my diet now. I don’t eat meat that doesn’t come from a good source. I like to know what the animal was eating before I eat it.
