Lauren From Fifth Harmony Is Going Vegan and We’re Freaking Out

Lauren Jauregui, a member of the group Fifth Harmony, announced on Twitter that she was trying a vegan diet.

Responding to a fan’s question about the singer’s workout routine, Lauren tweeted: “I’ve actually just been eating cleaner. Trying my best to be vegan/plant based.” Lauren admitted to having slip-ups, but veganism isn't about perfection or purity; it's about attempting to live in a way that avoids exploiting or harming animals and takes a stand for a kinder world.

Jauregui joins a long list of celebrities who have decided to ditch meat, dairy, and eggs. Most recently, singers and Jason Derulo, actors Edie Falco and Laverne Cox, and This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown announced they’d switched to a vegan diet.

Eating plant-based foods is a great way to protect your health, the environment, and of course, farmed animals.

From throwing chicks into macerators to tearing baby cows from their mothers, factory farmers routinely abuse animals. What’s worse, this systematic torture is 100 percent legal.

Fortunately, by going vegan you withdraw your support from these cruel and irresponsible industries. Ready to get started? Click here for vegan tips and tricks. Also check out our Pinterest page for thousands of recipe ideas.
