Carrie Underwood Goes Vegan

The singer recently shifted her diet from vegetarian to vegan.

During an appearance on an Australian talk show, The Circle, Carrie Underwood announced that she’s departed from her longtime vegetarian diet in favor of a completely vegan one. The singer—who grew up on a farm and renounced red meat at 14, going vegetarian at 21—credits lactose intolerance with helping her make the jump from veg to vegan. Underwood, who was voted Peta’s sexiest vegetarian celebrity in 2005, was on the program to promote her album, Play On. Though Play On was released in the US in 2009, and won Favorite Country Album at the 2010 American Music Awards, Underwood’s tour to Australia was specifically to promote the album’s Australian release.
