To re-cap for those who haven't read about me and my bub's vegetarianism, I was vegan when I fell pregnant and switched to pescatarianism soon after. I don't really like eggs unless they are used for baking, use organic milk for cooking and eat Jalna yogurt on occasion. I'm vegetarian right now- lately seafood of all kinds completely repulses me- seriously the thought of fish makes me gag.
This video list of famous vegetarians is bound to surprise you - from great thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle and Charles Darwin to creative geniuses like Leonardo Da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh. Vegetarian musicians include Little Richard, Pink, Andre 3000, Prince, Benji Madden and all of the Beatles. And it even boasts superstars such as Natalie Portman, Brad Pitt, Jerry Seinfeld, and Matt Groening (the creator of the Simpsons).
It's inspiring to see that for centuries intelligent, revolutionary humanitarians have also been passionate about animal rights. Being vegetarian does not make you a whacked out peace-loving hippy (although I am happy to be described that way) but one of the many people in history who has consciously chosen to live a life of peace, and who refuses to contribute to the profuse violence in the world.
