The Big Bang Theory’s brainy babe Mayim Bialik stopped by on OutQ to share her own thoughts on veganism. Host Larry Flick has been using her new cookbook, Mayim’s Vegan Table, to “live a cleaner, healthier food life,” however, he candidly stated that he, like many, is not yet ready to become a fully-fledged vegan. Bialik said that converting readers and eaters to veganism is not the intent of her new book, and she also trumps some vegan stereotypes like stringy hair and constant hunger.
“People assume that if you are vegan, you don’t enjoy food,” Bialik explained. “For me, sweet things don’t need to be as sweet, and I don’t need to eat them as frequently anymore, and to me, that’s better for my body… It’s not like I’ve given up wanting to eat yummy food just because I’m vegan.”
