Kristen Bell Goes Vegan

March 14, 2012

Kristen Bell has decided to take the leap into veganism. The actress, who has been a vegetarian since she was 11-years-old, credits watching the Forks Over Knives documentary for her diet switch. 

"It's more about the healthy benefits than the ethics," Bell said. "But it's compounded by the fact that I love animals and feel better not eating them." 

Bell has since started her very own organic garden. 

"There's cilantro, sage, baby greens. Carrots, broccoli, kale, potatoes, cauliflower. There are strawberries. Romaine, butter lettuce, thyme... Oh, the spinach is coming up real nice." 

Bell is engaged to actor Dax Shepard who made the switch to being a vegan earlier this year after watching the same film. Forks Over Knives has also been credited to making Ozzy Osbourne, Russell Brand, Eliza Dushku and Jason Mraz for embracing a vegan lifestyle.
