Former “Sister, Sister” actress and star of Twitches and Twitches Too, Tia Mowry, is embracing the vegan lifestyle, and sends many thanks to vegan pro Alicia Silverstone for helping her create delicious recipes. Mowry and her hubby, actor Cory Hardrict, just switched to plant-based diets at the beginning of the New Year. Tia Mowry is opening up about her recent transition to veganism, the difficulties and how cooking is now a bigger part of her life.
“First of all, I did go vegan and I’m very excited about it. I feel great. I feel alive. I really do. I feel like I’m making great choices for my health. I’m enjoying cooking vegan,” she told participants. As much as she loves being vegan, she has struggled with not having quick go-to meals. Luckily, she found a solution and now Mowry, her hubby and son can enjoy vegan meals whenever they want.
“What I’ve had to do, especially for my family, is cook a lot. When you’re a mom it’s hard to find that time. So I find myself cooking tons of food and then storing it up in the freezer or in the refrigerator,” Mowry said. “It’s a difficult transition, especially when you’ve been eating one way all of your life. You kind of have to relearn ways on how to cook, and I think that has been difficult.” She hasn’t let that discourage her, and she has loaded up on cookbooks such as Alicia Silverstone’s “The Kind Diet.” Mowry is so passionate about her new diet, that she hopes to publish her very own vegan cookbook centered around quick 30 minute vegan meals for moms that are on the go, sometime in the future.
