The country singing sensation recently told Stylist magazine, “I am 100 percent vegetarian, but I try my best to be vegan. It’s getting better.”
Some might think it’s difficult to maintain a meat-free diet, especially when eating at a restaurant, but Underwood disagrees.
“There are so many restaurants that will work with you – even steakhouses. My husband [NHL player Mike Fisher] loves to eat meat and there’s a place called King Prime that we like to go to,” she also old Stylist. “They’re always really nice to me and give me veggies if I ask for them. There’s loads of newer restaurants in [Nashville districts] East Nashville and The Gulch that will cater for you too…”
Underwood first revealed she gave up meat when she was a little girl, after seeing calves being castrated by her parents on her Oklahoma farm. She said, “Mom after that was so mad at me cause I quit eating what the family ate. I couldn’t eat those precious cows. They were my babies. I bottle fed some of them. And now I knew where they went.”
It’s great to see a superstar like Underwood stand up for what she believes in, and put faith in others struggling with vegetarian or vegan diets.
