Ellie Goulding on her meat-free life: 'It's actually easy to be a bad vegan'
Hitmaker Ellie Goulding has opened up about her dedication to leading a meat-free life and joked that she is an "aspiring vegan".
Speaking to Shape magazine recently, the songstress admitted that she tries very hard to be as healthy as possible but hasn't fully made the transition to a vegan lifestyle just yet: "I call myself an aspiring vegan. It's challenging, but not impossible. You just have to eat or drink a lot of greens."
"I make green juice for myself almost every day. I put in things like bananas, avocado, spinach, broccoli - whatever's in my fridge, really. Sweet potato fries and salad are my absolute favourites. They make the perfect meal. I eat a lot of quinoa and nuts, too, but I also love eating chips. It's actually easy to be a bad vegan because a lot of junk foods are vegan!"
She also spoke about her love of exercise, adding: "When I'm not on the road, my trainer comes to my house a few times a week and we go for a run outdoors and then do weight training."
"Or I go to his Barry's Bootcamp class. I like it because you spend half the session running and half doing weight and floor work. It's really good for endurance, and it keeps me super-focused. I also take another class that's 45 minutes of HIIT (high-intensity interval training), which is by far the hardest thing I've ever done. I come out of there feeling like something big just happened to my body, and I'm completely drained. Of all the workouts I've tried, this one has been the best for me."
