British actor and comedian Russell Brand recently announced on Instagram that he has returned to veganism. “I’ve been baking like a maniac ever since. And I’m vegan now (again),” he posted on Instagram along with photos of vegan bread, cakes, and cupcakes that he has baked since competing and winning in a recent episode of reality television show Celebrity Bake Off. Brand became vegetarian at the age of 14 but embraced the vegan lifestyle for two years starting in 2011 after viewing the documentary Forks Over Knives, which focuses on the health benefits of a plant-based diet. Earlier that same year, he was named one of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities.
