In a recent interview with Food & Wine Magazine, teenage actor/entrepreneur Jaden Smith discussed his interest in environmental issues. Smith—the son of famed actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith—helped found paper-packed beverage brand Just Water when he was 11 years old in an effort to curb plastic pollution. When cooking at home, Smith revealed that he often prepares foods such as kale, quinoa, beans, and brown rice. “Everyone in my family has such different tastes,” Smith said. “I don’t want to cook things that aren’t vegetarian. I don’t want to cook meat because I don’t want to breathe it in.” When asked what he craves when he is in California, Smith responded with a rant about vegan food. “Vegan pancakes and vegan butter is the best combination,” Smith said. “And vegan bacon and vegan sausage are the best things I’ve ever had. Usually, at my parents’ house, there are vegan pancakes.”
