What Made Jessica Chastain Start Eating a Vegan Diet?
Before Jessica Chastain became vegan, she had been a pescatarian. She was one of those people who accidentally became vegan as she admitted how it happened at random.
Jessica Chastain told W Magazine that “I found myself going to veganism because a friend of mine had a two-week vegan food delivery program she wasn’t going to use so I used it, and immediately I just had more energy than I’ve ever had in my life. Being vegan was not anything I ever wanted to be. I just really was listening to what my body was telling me.”
She went on to admit that “I was really low on energy; my cholesterol was very high, and the doctor wanted to put me on medicine.”
