Carrie Underwood recently talked to Self magazine about her decision to switch from a vegetarian diet to a vegan one after realizing the health benefits of removing animal products from her diet.
"I've been a vegetarian for seven years, but after seeing a friend who looked amazing and had recently gone vegan, I thought, 'What's holding me back?' Now I'm 95 per cent vegan," the singer said.
However, Underwood would lose her vegan lifestyle if she was able to own and run her own farm.
"My veganism is based on a concern about where my food is coming from. In my perfect world, I'd have webcams wherever food is processed so I'd know how clean it is," Underwood said. "I'll never eat meat again, because I look and feel better without it, but if I could raise my own cows and chickens and produce my own eggs and cheese, it would be awesome! The food would taste better, because the animals would be happy!"
