The cover of the May issue of Shape magazine features funny lady Ellen DeGeneres, who shares how going vegan has changed her life. DeGeneres raves that her plant-based diet combined with yoga have completely transformed her, both physically and mentally. Along with eating cruelty-free, the media maven has eliminated sugar from her diet, revealing that she has more energy and feels more invigorated without it, and never feels deprived. DeGeneres says that she was raised eating meat and unhealthy fried foods, and that looking back she now understands that those choices were irresponsible. She also dishes about her daily diet habits—including bok choy for breakfast—and how she’s enjoying her stint as a judge on American Idol.
