Is Emma Watson vegan? Yes and no, and it depends on how you look at it.
Since the British actor is a global advocate for animal rights, you’d expect her to be vegan.
However, Emma Watson is not ‘VEGAN.’ Well, not in the strict sense of the term.
In this article, you’ll discover Emma’s diet, her favourite cuisine and comfort foods right now.
Is Emma Watson Vegan?
When it comes to food, Emma Watson is not following, what you would call, a vegan diet.
So, from a food choice perspective, Emma Watson is not vegan.
However, the DEFINITION of VEGAN PERSON states that “any person that condemns animal cruelty and exploitation and excludes – whenever possible and practicable – animal-based food, clothing, accessories and other products, can be called a vegan.”
The British star has been an ardent supporter of animal welfare, and promoter of cruelty-free labels for years.
Emma talks about protecting animals on TV, radio shows, at red and green carpet events, and even on her movies.
Moreover, Emma is wearing only cruelty-free and sustainable fashion labels.
So, from a fashion choice angle, you can call Emma Watson ‘vegan’.
What is Emma Watson’s Diet?
Despite not following a vegan diet, Emma Watson is very selective with what she eats.
“I do not follow a particular diet, but I avoid – whenever I can – processed foods packed with preservatives. Most of the food I eat is healthy and consists of lean proteins, unsaturated fats, vegetables and grains”, Emma told Marie Claire.
When at home, Emma loves to cook.
Her dream is to attend, when her busy schedule allows it, a professional culinary school.
“I like to cook, but I don’t know many recipes. I only do things I already know how to prepare. But, I’d love to learn more so I can, one day, open the fridge and say, ‘I have courgettes, butter and pasta, I know what I’m going to make today”.
What Is Emma Watson’s Favourite Food?
While Emma Watson is British, her favourite food is Mexican.
“I’m obsessed with Mexican cuisine. Unfortunately, Mexican food is not that popular in the UK, so one of the first things I do when I’m in New York is to eat Mexican food. I love it!” Emma told ‘The Huffington Post’.
Emma loves Mexican food so much that she has invented her own Mexican dish:
“I mix guacamole, salsa, and scrambled eggs on a warmed up tortilla. It is simple, fast and very yummy.”
What About Comfort Foods?!
Despite trying to eat mostly healthy foods, there are times when Emma craves, like all of us, ‘comfort’ food.
Emma Watson’s comfort foods are pizza and Nutella with strawberries.
In conclusion, if semantics is what interests you, you can argue that Emma Watson is not a vegan because she does not follow a vegan diet.
But, you could also argue that thanks to her support for cruelty-free and vegan fashion labels, she’s done more for animal welfare than most vegans out there.
