Chelsea Clinton No Longer Vegetarian, Never a Vegan 13 Comments 2 BY MICHAEL DESTRIES JUNE 19, 2013 CATEGORIES: EATS, HEALTHY LIVING, VEGAN TAGS: CHELSEA CLINTON.
After 18 years of vegetarian living a lifestyle that helped in part to inspire her dad President Bill Clinton to drop meat Chelsea Clinton has revealed that shes given it up. Actually, she surprisingly hasnt been one for years.
In an article for NBCs Rock Center, the 33-year-old details what inspired her at an early age to make ethical choices and adopt a diet that was friendly towards animals.
One spring day in my sixth grade Life Sciences class at Booker Arts Magnet Elementary School in Little Rock, Arkansas, we read two articles, she writes. The first concerned the cruelty toward cattle in slaughterhouses and the second was about the detrimental effects of red meat on your body. By the time I got home later that day, I had resolved to give up red meat, to take a stand against animal cruelty and a stand for my health (it seemed rather simple to my 11-year-old self).
Sharing that she now eats meat (which is interesting considering the setup above), Clinton goes on to say that she has tremendous respect for people who make consistent ethical choices in their lives people who not only dont eat meat, but who also dont wear fur or leather and dont use products made from animal derivatives. In particular, she singles out Stella McCartney and her ethical fashion label as one example deserving of praise.
Digging back a bit, I found an April interview Chelsea did with Free Republic Parade Magazine that revealed shes been mixing in the meat since age 29.
Free Republic: Rumor has it youre a vegan. True?
Chelsea: I was never a vegan. I gave up red meat when I was 11 because in my seventh-grade life science class, we read two articles about red meat, and I think probably I needed to be a little zealous about something. I gave up all meat when I was 13. Then when I was 29, I woke up one day and craved red meat. My husband, who is an inveterate carnivore, was thrilled. My father is quite famously a vegan, and I am thrilled by that.
So now you know. Cross one Clinton off the veg list.
Who cares what she puts in her oat bag?
why is Chelsea Mezvinsky never referred to by her married name? Why is she in the news, seen in public, etc. but never with her husband?
I’d love to see someone photoshop an oatbag on Chelsea’s face! ROFLMAO!
It might be hyphenated.
>> a lifestyle that helped in part to inspire her dad President Bill Clinton to drop meat
Yawn. Big deal.
Anything in a skirt could inspire Bill Clintoon to drop meat.
I don't believe that for a second.
Well, he did give up cigars. or so he says.
not “give up”. Unfurl.
lies like her Mom
The family business has been sucking the blood out of the public for years........
Especailly when her maiden name should be Hubbell.
We will probably find out Bubba's Vegan diet was something like this:
Free republic parade magazine?? Was there a merger Jim didnt tell is about?
I saw that, but I left it the way they put it.
I guarantee she is lying. She learned from two of the biggest. How can she not be a corrupt liar coming from those two parents?!
“My father is quite famously a vegan, “
Webb was a vegan? Didn’t look like one!
Neither does a hippopotamus (sp?).
