Actress Jenna Dewan Tatum, who plays Lucy Lane, Lois Lane’s sister in CBS’ “Supergirl,” believes veganism positively affects not just one’s personal health, but also improves the environment, all while reducing the suffering of animals. The actress knows a good deal when she see one. “It’s a huge one-for-three action,” she says. “There aren’t many things in life that let you affect the world so profoundly with just one decision.” Jenna owns an sanctuary farm with rescued horses, goats, chickens and dogs, which both helps the animals and fuels her advocacy for animals.
So what does she eat for dinner? “Lots of tahini, tabbouleh, lots of salads, a lot of hummus – I think my daughter must eat her weight in hummus – lots of avocado. We love Mediterranean and Mexican food. And we’re a big fresh-vegetable family. I choose whole, real foods. And when I cheat, it’s chips and salsa – I generally don’t want to cheat with animals. I want to cheat with French fries.”
