Erykah Badu – eats vegan since 1997
American singer-songwriter, Erykah Badu, is known as the queen of neo soul. She has produced six albums, and released many popular singles. Her work has often been compared to jazz great Billie Holiday. She’s also played a wide range of supporting roles in movies as an actress.
Erykah has been vegetarian since her senior year of high school back in 1989 and has eaten like a vegan since 1997, although she chooses not to call herself a vegan since she says, “I don’t subscribe to any type of organizations. It’s just what’s best for my body.”
Her favorite foods are mostly raw salads, with avocados, fruits, and vegetables. Health and vitality have always been a priority for her, since for her vegan food is soul food in its truest form. “Soul food means to feed the soul,” she said.
