Celebrities, what are they eating?

If you have been following my blog, you know that I am a raw food eater..

So last week I was just curious as to how many celebrities are either vegetarian, vegan, or raw...

I was very surprised at how many celebrites that included..So I thought I would just share with my readers some of these famous names and faces!!






Demi Moore will be 48 this year! She has been eating the raw diet for over 10 yrs.




Super model Carol Alt is 50! She has been on the raw food diet since she was 34.



Alicia Silverston began eating a vegan diet when she was 21, that was 12 years ago. She looks incredible and has written a vegan cookbook, "The Kind Life"


Woody Harrelson is 49, hear what he has to say:






The designer Donna Karan will be 61 this year! She has been on the raw food diet for 9 years.






Actress Angela Bassett is a knock out at 52! She has been on the raw food diet for 8 yrs.


I have only been on a raw diet for a little over a year, and it has changed everything about me. From my hair to my toenails. I can't wait to see the results after another 5-10 years. From looking at these pictures, life looks pretty good on the raw diet!!



Untill next time,

Jan

  2. Don't forget that these celebrities have teams of people who help them look the way they do (not only when they're on camera!)...Cindy Crawford promotes "Meaningful beauty" line but I'm pretty sure she not only uses those products but also has sessions with Dr Jean-Louis Sabagh on a regular basis.

    I try to eat healthy because of the way I was brought up. I would never deny the obvious benefits of healthy eating and staying away from artificial/highly processed food but at the same time I don't really look at celebrities and compare myself to them in any way. Whether Demi Moore's looks great thanks to her raw food diet (as she claims) or thanks to plastic surgery is her business. I think small steps (eating healthy, exercising etc.) on a daily basis is what I'm after; I'm not sure I could cut coke, chocolate etc. completely out of my diet. I have to make a conscious decision to eat mindfully several times a day :)

    Speaking of mindful eating, I'm reading this book right now and I'm pretty sure you'd love it:

    Have a great day! :)

  4. SanFranciscoCA,
    Thanks for your comments...
    I'm glad that you know what you want for yourself.
    I know what I want most is an amazing life in which I feel great, full of energy and vitality, free of sickness and disease. Happy, healthy and enjoying life to the fullest.
    And the way that I have found the ability to do these things, for me. is with the way that I have choosen to eat...along with exercise. This blog is just a place for me to share the things that I have discovered along my path. And the side effects of my raw vegan diet just happen to be weight loss, and glowing healthy skin and hair, along with a great attitude in life. I, like yourself feel no need to compare myself to others either.
    Thanks for coming by and reading, and also thank you for the book suggestion. I went on Amazon and read some excerts...One that I especially liked was this
    "Mindfulness is deliberately paying attention, being fully aware of what is happening both inside yourself-in your body, heart, and mind-and outside yourself in your enviroment. Mindfulness is awareness without judgement or criticisim...
    Thanks again,
    Jan

  5. Hi Jan,

    Sorry, I didn't mean my comment to sound as a criticism of celebrities or anything like that! I'm obviously passionate about nutrition and exercise, my sincere apologies. What I meant was, aside from their nutrition and exercise majority of celebrities take a few extra steps to feel and look good. They represent a certain lifestyle or certain products but behind the curtains there are teams and teams of people helping them along the way.I mentioned Kombucha (a drink tons of celebrities were pictures drinking too) because I used to drink it quite often and all of a sudden it was pulled off the Whole Foods shelves. I used to swear by Whole Foods items after they stopped selling groceries containing high fructose corn syrup (I thought I didn't have to think twice before I placed anything from their shelves in my shopping basket). Now I'm trying to trust myself with those choices.

    The book I recommended actually talks about people who stopped listening to what their bodies were telling them (nutrition-wise) and started reading about various current diets and studies online and relying on those instead. It also talks about people who know exactly what's good for them and have a long-term healthy relationship with food. It took you a long time to get to where you are with healthy eating habits and I admire you for that. I think you'd still love the book though! :)

  8. Very interesting! Thanks for the post! I can't believe Demi Moore is almost 50...

    I wanted to chime in about what SanFranciscoCA said about Whole Foods pulling kombucha from their shelves. WF didn't pull the drinks because they're unhealthy; they pulled them temporarily because it was found that the drinks contained more alcohol than was labeled. So apparently they are working with the distributors to get the bottles re-labeled with the accurate alcohol percentage, and will then re-stock. From my understanding, the kombucha companies weren't being deceitful; I think it was an honest mistake because the kombucha fermenting process ended up yielding more alcohol than they knew, and once they found out, they were happy to re-label!

    Anyway, I just wanted to throw that out there for anyone who sees this & wondered what SanFranciscoCA was referring to... It seems like s/he was implying that kombucha isn't so healthy afterall, but I don't think that's the case.

  10. I love eating raw and eat according to the way Jesus instructed in the Gospel of Peace. Many new raw vegans forget to enjoy sprouts and soaked grains like buckwheat as well. I think the most wonderful thing about raw in addition to looking and feeling physically great, is the fact that I never have anxiety any more and I feel so happy and connected spiritually and to nature. Thanks for a great article!
