American singer and rapper Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, has recently posted a video on TikTok, sharing her plant-based lifestyle and celebrating six months as a vegan.
The video posted on October 13 captioned, “Happy 6 months Vegan to meee,” adding, the vegan lifestyle “brings [her] joy.”
The 32-year-old singer also revealed that she was “eating all animal products” at the start of the coronavirus pandemic and even shared a video of herself making a “stale donut pound cake milkshake type concoction.”
Lizzo said that she is “not ashamed” of her old eating habits and revealed that she made the first shake “after having endured a whirlwind tour and year. And after being seven years vegetarian, going back to eating all animal products.”
The Truth Hurst singer said, “Honestly, I am both of these women, and I cannot condemn one woman or the other. I’m happy both ways, and right now, this is what’s bringing me joy.”
It seems like Lizzo is now loving her new vegan lifestyle, sharing the footage of herself dancing and singing around her kitchen, stating, “This is me at the beginning of quarantine, happy, loving myself, dancing. And, you know what? I’m still that happy girl, loving myself, and loving my body.”
In another video, she wore the Garden of Eden Glissenette Teddy from Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty line and said, “Love yourself at all stages in your life because you are who you are.”
Of late, Lizzo has shared several vegan recipes and tips with her followers, including a vegan version of McDonald’s McChicken sandwich and Jamaican patties. She even went on to describe being “plant-based and vegan” as “pretty easy” as long as she is not hungover.
She revealed, “I used to crave cheesy eggs.” However, she has now figured out a vegan version, showcasing in a different TikTok video that includes a breakfast scramble using “JUST Egg (a plant-based egg substitute), black beans, corn, vegan pepper jack cheese, and seasoning.”
In addition, Lizzo has also been sharing her exercise routines with her followers, posting some of her workout footage, including cycling and jumping rope, on TikTok.
In one video, she said, “Hey, so I’ve been working out consistently for the last five years and it may come as a surprise to some of y’all that I’m not working out to have your ideal body type.”
“I’m working out to have my ideal body type,” she continued. “And you know what type that is? None of your fucking business because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job and I stay on my job.” “So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald’s or work out or not work out, how about you look at your own fucking self and worry about your own goddamn body because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside,” Lizzo added.
