Kimberly Elise revels in her vegan lifestyle with a new ad for PETA.
In the ad the “Hit the Floor” actress flaunts her ripped abs and toned arms in a pink sports bra and black workout tights. She also gripes a tomato in one hand and carrots in the other.
In an exclusive video for PETA, also known as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Elise revealed prior to becoming vegan she was a vegetarian for 10 years. Since she did not consume any dairy products, the mother-of-two decided to step it up a notch.
According to Elise there are many perks of being a vegan. Some of the perks she discusses are the improvement of taste in simple vegetables, fantastic energy levels and a more youthful look.
“You don’t realize what food tastes like until you stop eating meat,” Elise said. “It’s like something happens to your palette, it just gets cleansed. It’s like the simplest thing—a tomato—tastes like the most vibrant, amazing thing on the planet.”
Elise encourages individuals to make the switch to vegan. Visit PETA.com to watch her interview.
