Many celebrities are becoming increasingly conscious about their diet and what they consume on a daily basis. Power couple Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh, recently opened up in detail about their plant-based diet and here’s what they had to say about their lifestyle changes.
“Switching to a plant-based diet and completely avoiding animal protein has made me feel lighter and more active than ever. Because digestion is so much faster, we wake up refreshed and without lethargy. It’s like your body has more oxygen!” Ritesh says the real changes Genelia and he have experienced in turn. Genelia, on the other hand, goes on to dispel the myths surrounding the foods allowed on a vegan diet. “A lot of Indian food is actually vegetarian and we don’t realize it. Like pav bhaji, chola bhature, Misal pav, vada pav all these can be served to a vegetarian if you just skip ghee or curd. Many people actually fear the vegan culture thinking that the only choice left is flour and sugar but actually that’s not the case. My kids also follow a plant based diet. does and even does it wonderfully in school. So I guess if kids can, it’s really not that hard.”
The couple recalls how the kids first got the idea in their heads, when Ryan once questioned how they could eat chicken when they loved their dog Flash so much, when they were both animals. The journey was a pride one with children also standing firm and spreading awareness for the innocent voiceless animals.
