If you spoke to celebrities with the most bangin’ bodies in Hollywood, many will say their six pack abs are actually made in the kitchen. The secret is actually what they’re not eating.

Aside from the health and beauty benefits to going vegan, there are some ethical and spiritual reasons why you might want to kick animal products to the curb. Take a cruise through these vegan celeb stories and do some soul searching.
