Carrie Underwood, Vegan: “I kind of had to be vegetarian on vacation”

article-2455452-18AE829F00000578-22_634x874 - Carrie Underwood, Vegan: "I kind of had to be vegetarian on vacation"

On how she is a vegan and occasional vegetarian:

‘I am a vegan but I consider myself to be a practical vegan. If I order something on a menu and it has a sprinkling of cheese on top I’m not going to send it back. The vegan thing is something I try to do my best on because it’s a cheesy world out there. We recently went to Italy and they put cheese in, on and around everything. So I kind of had to be vegetarian when I was on vacation, and now that I’ve been back home I’ve been getting back into my vegan lifestyle.’

On her favorite beauty trick – coconut butter:

‘I put it on my food, I put it on my face, I put it on my hair. If it’s winter, the second I get out of the shower, I spread it all over and it feels really good and it smells good too.’

… says Carrie in Women’s Health Magazine.

It seems her beauty tricks work because her hair and skin glow. I’m glad she portrays a good example of a healthy looking vegan.

I can’t believe no one’s pointed out that she probably ate Parmesan – which, like all matured hard cheeses, contains Rennit ie CALF’S STOMACH

Sam

You can get vegetarian parmesan; and parmesan is not the only cheese served in Italy, I had no problem eating vegetarian there. And it’s spelled ‘rennet.’

Either you’re vegan because of some medical issues or ethical positions or you’re not.
It seems weird to declare yourself a vegan if you have dairy even from time to time.
Moreover I don’t think she would be huge if she was just vegetarian. It sounds like an unncessary effort.

Lex

Magda, Veganism isn’t about weight, it’s about not contributing to the bio-industry and the horrors of mass animal farming. A practical vegan tries as little to contribute to that misery as possible without becoming a crank. Sending food back because there’s a bit of cheese on it is something a lot of vegans would do, but personally I think that goes into obsessive territory and doesn’t make any difference to the animal (after all the plate has already been served up and isn’t going to somebody else). I think she has a wonderful attitude, wish there were more like her.… Read more »

What would call somebody who is a vegan, just because it makes them feel better? I eat a vegan diet not because of any type of ethical or medical issues. I eat a vegan diet because I feel way healthier when I do.

Some people have environmental reasons for not eating animal products, is water conservation, fossil fuel, ect.
The point is, any reduction of the eco footprint is a good thing, evn if its only 98% of the time.
It would be wrong to send something back to the kitchen for having cheese: they throw it out. That is a waste of resources AND you consume more resources replacing the dish. The eco decision is to eat it, but remind the staff to leave out the cheese on future vegan dishes

Well, I guess you can’t really say that you ARE vegan, and then eat cheese every now and then. But it seems to me, that what she’s actually saying is, that she’s striving towards the vegan lifestyle most of the time.. It’s her starting point, the basis and background in her all together diet… But she’s not 100 % consequent about it. Which I find OK. I don’t nescassarily see it as hypocritical…

That’s how I am. Anything I buy, I check for animal ingredients. Nothing comes into my house that is not vegan. When I eat out, I always request it be made sans animal products, however if they slip up and butter my toast, I’m not going to waste it either. So I guess it’s like being as vegan as possible without being wasteful

I agree. I’m 5’8 and 124 lbs and look about the same as she does so if she’s 5’4 I would say 105 or so (maybe 108 MAX)

I read an article a while back where she said she was 5’3″ and 110 lbs.
Looks pretty accurate, though celebs tend to exaggerate both height and
weight.

Don’t really know much about her, but I agree with what she says. I found when I was vegan, other vegans were really quite pedantic about what I was eating. Like, I could be completely vegan for 6 months, then I may have had some fetta on my salad at a restaurant and they would be like ‘oh you can’t be a vegan anymore then’..while completely ignoring the fact that I don’t wear or use animal products and on one or two occasions ate a by product. So now, even when I am mainly vegan…I just call myself vegetarian. Too… Read more »

You are either vegan or you are not vegan, clearly she is not vegan. Just as you are a meat-eater or a vegetarian, you can not be a *kind of* vegetarian.

Zoe

Agreed… Reminds me of someone who once told me “I’m vegetarian, but I sometimes eat chicken!?”

Erica

This is why I call myself pescetarian – because I will occasionally eat seafood and I don’t think it’s right to call myself vegetarian if I do that – even though I’m vegetarian 95% of the time. I think Carrie should do the same – she is a vegetarian who tries to cut out animal products most of the time! It’s complicated, but it’s more accurate. I admire people who can truly be 100% vegan because I think that is a tough diet to follow and there are many hidden non-vegan ingredients. Even being vegetarian you probably are not sometimes… Read more »

If a vegan unknowingly eats butter does that mean they are no longer vegan? In that case I don’t agree that you either are vegan or aren’t vegan. What I disagree with is when people say “I HAD to eat cheese” or “it’s too hard to stick to”. I mean, it’s definitely realistic to not send your food back if you don’t know for sure what’s in it, but save from poverty I don’t think it’s accurate to say you *have* to eat something. Would you have to eat it if you were lactose intolerant?

I just don’t understand why people go vegan. What’s so immoral about eating eggs, milk and cheese ? No animals have been killed or injured in the process, it makes no sense. Do vegan people think that eggs and cows should solely exist as wild animals and shouldn’t be domesticated at all ? Should they just lay eggs on the fields and humans shouldn’t pick them up and eat them, or what ?

Kate

Eggs actually likely cause more death than something like beef. For every female chick, a male chick is born and killed at birth because they’re worthless to the industry. A hen only lays for a year or so before she’s considered ‘spent’ and killed, sometimes going into food or pet food, sometimes just wasted. So that’s almost a death per 150 eggs – whereas one cow would feed more people than 150 eggs. This is why I eat offal that is often thrown away (for health purposes, I was strict vegetarian for 11 years but struggled, though I refuse to… Read more »

I don’t care about the industry, I eat organic eggs from my grandma’s yard. Her hens do nothing all day but run around and chill in the garden, eat and lay eggs. Now tell me what’s so wrong and immoral about that.

Sascha
Guest

Where are the roosters in your grandma’s yard? Around 50% is male, so they need to be somewhere (and most people with eggs from chicken in their own yard do not have roosters so they are slaughterd in the industry). But to eat the eggs, you can’t keep te roosters and hens together I suppose, so that would be another problem. It is maybe possible to eat eggs without truly traumatizing or killing an animal, but most of the time there is at least some suffering that could be prevented by the simple act of not eating eggs. But I… Read more »

My grandma doesn’t keep roosters because they rape the hens all day long and the hens end up featherless and injured, lol.

I agree that the industry is horrifying, but I don’t think veganism will solve anything, after all, most people cannot afford to be vegan and need a cheap source of protein in their lives. The industry will live forever; it’s kind of a no-end situation, which is really sad.

My family keeps chickens and my dad (the one who is primarily responsible for them) regards them more as pets than egg producers or even food. In my twenty years i have only eaten one of our chickens–we were overly populated with roosters and they’d kill each other before we could even get ahold of them. Note that i said roosters. We keeo roosters because it is easier and more fulfilling (though not as guaranteed) to get chicks from a mother hen than from an incubator. If a hen decides to sit on her eggs we let her. Otherwise we… Read more »

No idea why someone downvoted me in my earlier post for saying commercial egg production was cruel, but anyway. Another way to do it is to rescue ex-battery chickens ‘spent hens’. I have about 20 of them that are free to wander across 15 acres of grass during the day. Battery farms will often give you them as they have no use for them, so it stops them being slaughtered. They lay in cycles so sometimes we have very few eggs, sometimes they each lay one every day. I give surplus to friends and family, which I figure means they… Read more »

As long as one doesn’t contribute to the bio industry and one raises one’s own chickens and it’a respectful mutual profit situation (chickens get safety and feed in exchange) I think it’s fine. Correct me if I’m wrong but one can eat non-fertilized eggs. It’s the cruelty and degrading treatment of cows in the milk industry that is really awful. Pumped full of hormones, milked all year, killed after only a few years of non-stop milk production, denied any kind of normal life, time with their calves which are often killed in front of them, the list goes on and… Read more »

If you know about the industry, how awful they treat animals. Then you would care. You should really watch some documentaries about it and see that the world isn’t a fairytale, as you seem to believe.

Animals are killed and injured all the time, just by virtue of other animals (for example humans) being alive in the same environment. That’s just how an ecosystem works. Others have explained the ethical problems of industry farming: that animals are treated unnecessarily cruelly, etc. This is true, and should be an issue for everyone. My point is that this whole argument is a non-starter. If you are alive, then something else is dead. Your house, city, wherever you live has changed an environment negatively, destroying animal habitats, and thus killing them. You are using up resources that another animal… Read more »

I’m vegan. And I think it’s wrong to eat another being that had a heart or parents. In my opinion, it’s wrong to eat something that have feelings. Just because animals can’t talk so that we understand, doesn’t mean that they aren’t hurting. People often say that humans have eating meat as long as since the beginning, but that’s not true. Humans were fruit eaters. And then became meat eaters when they couldn’t get any more fruit. So just because they had to eat. The word vegetarian actually means that you’re not supposed to eat ANY animal products. Either milk… Read more »

You can eat dairy products and eggs and still be a vegetarian. Being a vegetarian means you do not eat any kind of meat. A vegan is someone who does not eat any meat or animal by-product and does not wear any products made from animals

Jenny
Guest

From the beginning. The vegetarian word meant that NO animal products should be eaten. Later on it changed when people ate and drink milk etc. Vegan and vegetarian was the same except that vegans didn’t wear any animal products, which vegetarians did.

Catherine

Just because no animal flesh passed your lips does not mean animals aren’t dead because of you. Just fyi. Crop agriculture kills animals as well. As do many other human endeavors. Those animals shouldn’t go to waste: that would be unethical. Whatever our hominid ancestors were in the past doesn’t change the fact that we are omnivores now. Please see a comparative anatomy text for further information. Many many many people feel extremely terrible without animal products in their diet. The nutrients in plants tend to have low bioavailability so if someone has high nutrient needs, a veg*n diet will… Read more »

What happens when you travel over seas and you eat with people in other cultures who do eat meat… do you just not eat it? Or if you do travel how would you handle it… being vegetarian is something usually only upper class people can have the option of having… many people all over the world eat meat… so to say it is unethical is a bit silly. I understand that you personally do not wish to partake in it… but animals eating other animals is found in nature… I also agree that I do not think many stars and… Read more »

I don’t eat beef, pork, chicken, etc. but I do eat fish sometimes. Most of the time I stick to dairy, fruits, veggies, and other carbs. However, this does not make me a vegetarian. Since I do eat fish I am a pescatarian. You cannot eat cheese or any other dairy product occasionally, or even rarely, and consider yourself a vegan.

I agree with you about the cheese thing in Italy. I went on vacation there for two weeks and cheese did not come on everything. In nearly every restaurant I ate, unless you ordered lasagna or something like that, you had to ask for cheese to be added. I’m half Italian and most of the meals my grandmother made did not have cheese on them.

Ugh I hate the way she dresses like she’s going to her 12th grade prom on the red carpet. Her hair looks great for someone who (I’m assuming) bleaches their hair blonde.

I knew, just from reading her quote, that half the comments were going to be about how she isn’t doing vegan the ‘right’ way. I’m not sure what it is about vegetarian/vegans, but so many of them always feel an obligation to criticize other vegans. Its like, to them, if others aren’t doing it their way (read:the right way) the honor of all vegetarians suffers and the world ends and puppies cry. I was vegetarian for 2 years and vegan for a year, but I was never really bothered by how others wanted to define their diets -oh, you eat… Read more »

I think she’s gorgeous! Her skin and hair is always glowing and I think the coconut butter is working wonders. She looks sexy on the cover and healthy. I also agree with another poster that she looks hot in the sweats over the gown. Also I get what’s she’s saying and I don’t think she’s being a hypocrite. She’s trying to be vegan but she also isn’t wasteful.

I don’t mind those who say they try to follow a vegan diet most of the time but it’s another thing to claim you’re vegan then eat cheese. I don’t care if you’re vegan or not but actual vegans do not eat animal products – ever. I don’t claim to be a vegetarian just because I don’t eat meat 6 out of 7 days a week lol.

Well, I’d like to see how many vegans would rather starve (to death) than eat animal products.. Maybe 1 in 100 000? So following your logic everyone else is not a real vegan, right?
