The mother of one went vegan after witnessing family members suffer diet-related sicknesses.
Tia Mowry is the latest superstar to pose for PETA. The mother-of-one and reality TV star decided to go vegan after witnessing family members suffer from diet-related illnesses.
Mowry wanted to become the voice of her community in the process of giving up meat and dairy products. “That’s one of the main reasons why I decided to be a part of this PETA ad campaign because I wanted to educate my culture about the benefits of becoming vegan,” said Mowry. “There’s a stigma about being vegan. Some people say it doesn’t taste great or it doesn’t taste good—don’t knock it until you try it!”
The former Game star says she’s more aware of what goes into her body and even has friends hooked on the lifestyle change.
“What happens to these beautiful animals and these beautiful creatures is mind-blowing,” she followed up. “It’s just sad. I think some people are afraid to know what really goes on. So they think ignorance is bliss. But unfortunately, not in this case.”
