Shilpa Shetty turns vegetarian, calls it her ‘best decision’


Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s post-pregnancy weight loss journey is truly inspirational. Not only this, her cooking skills, binge outings and fitness mantras always woo us, for the way she knows the art of balancing in life.

Interestingly, the actress has turned vegetarian and she revealed it recently via a video on her official social media account. In the video she posted on Monday, the 45 year-old actress can be seen plucking fresh cabbage and snap beans from a farm with her son, Viaan. In her caption, she explained how the process of turning vegetarian has been satisfying and now she has accepted “vegetarianism” completely.

Calling it a milestone of her life, she wrote that it was “a hard decision” and “seemed impossible at one time, but it felt like a ‘calling’ of sorts.

We all develop habits according to our upbringings and the same happened in case of Shilpa. In her post she also spoke about growing up in a Mangalorean family and how fish and meat have been her diet staples for the longest time, so the shift has been really difficult.

She also gave a glimpse about her upcoming healthy recipe videos, where she will be sharing more and more vegetarian recipes with fans.

Mentioning about the reasons for the switch, she wrote about her conscientiousness towards the environment. She did so, because she wanted to reduce her carbon footprint in the environment. She mentioned, “Over the years, I’ve realized that cultivating livestock for food, has not only destroyed forests but also been the largest sources of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous-oxide emissions. These are majorly responsible for the climate change our planet is experiencing. Also, following a vegetarian diet is not only beneficial for animals, but also can actually protect us from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, can improve & also reverse cardiovascular health, and some major diseases. It’s the best change for OUR health and the health of the PLANET.”

We think her views are very much practical and throw light on much-needed awareness that we humans need to have for a healthy body and a beautiful Earth to live on.
