Musician/actress Kate Nash recently transitioned to a plant-based diet. Nash currently portrays struggling actress Rhona Richardson on hit Netflix series GLOW (an acronym for “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling”), an empowering role that Nash said has helped her prioritize strength over physical appearance. Prior to adopting a plant-based diet, Nash struggled with mental health issues and public scrutiny about gaining weight. “When you’re a woman, you have such a strange relationship with your body because—especially when you’re in the public eye—you’re constantly being judged,” Nash said.“People comment on my body all the time in a really inappropriate way, in a way I find completely offensive.” Nash—who recently released her fourth studio album—became vegetarian eight years ago after investing in surgery to save her companion rabbit. “I’m actually vegan now, and I’m an advocate for that,” Nash said. “Becoming a vegetarian made me conscious of the power of the decision, and I could explore my relationship with my mental health.”
