A Few Raw Vegan Celebrities
Celebrities always have to be in top shape. When you are in the public eye, you will need to present yourself in the best possible light. This means a celebrity must eat the most conducive diet for maintaining a lean physique. And, of course, looks aren't everything. A person should always eat a diet that is one of the healthiest options available. Celebrities understand this two-pronged approach to diet and that is why so many of them are interested in a raw vegan diet.

In addition, the diet centers on eating only foods and vegetables that are uncooked. Some may wonder why people would prefer not to cook their vegetables.
