Ellen DeGeneres And Portia De Rossi Go Vegan

Going vegan is HARD! I tried it for a while and had a nervous break down in the middle of a Turkish restaurant because I couldn’t tell if my rice was cooked with butter or oil. I was crying so hard, we actually had to LEAVE the place.

It really is a true life change. You don’t realize how many items we consume that are connected to animals… unless you stop and think about it. Since then, I haven’t had eggs, yogurt, milk or raw cheese. I’ve also severely limited my intake of cooked products… but that’s very hard to do when everything has egg or butter in it! Like I said… I was unsuccessful at accomplishing this.

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia De Rossi are giving vegan a go! They’ve made the decision and are really happy with their progress. Portia feels the compassionate change was the right one.

"We just made that shift in our lives. The benefit of it is weight
loss. For her more than me. Her body responded to it very well. It is
amazing. We are just both very happy. It feels like such a compassionate
choice. We are such animal lovers, why stop short of cows and chickens?
It didn’t make any sense."

And De Rossi admits she and her wife have
been working towards becoming vegans since their very first date.

"When Ellen and I first got together I was wearing fur and
Ellen was wearing very expensive Italian calfskin leather. She was
giving me a hard time about wearing the fur and I said, ‘Why is a fox
any more important than a cow?’ "We took that idea and went all the way
with it. We are doing what we can."

    Nothing can replace meat or dairy. End of debate. Those who choose to be vegans are just stupid and missing out big time. ALl the more for the rest of us!!

    I am not a vegan, because I eat meat occasionally. But I find myself body likes veggies better than meat. Many of my friends are chefs and its an insult not to eat anything they prepare. Also, when I was in college, meat was very expensive. My hair, teeth, body, skin looks better because I took meat pretty much out of my life.

    not their fan….but wow I love this idea. I am still eating some animal food such as dairy, eggs, fish. I will be slowly removing it from my diet. I have been meat/poultry free for at least 10 years and I do not miss it at all, in fact I do not even handle any flesh at all. I have said ”no” to fur long time ago. I still wear some leather, mostly shoes (I am a shoe maniac), but I will be making smarter/better choices. It is all in works.

    I find it interesting how the dumbest people, closest to animals in their intelligence, seem to find the biggest difference between humans and other animals. Do you need to keep telling yourself that you’re smarter than they are?

    As a vegan, I do not consume honey. However, I must say that I didn’t go vegan for the bees and never would have – no offense to them. I just think that if people are going to learn to stop treating other species as inferior, talking about bees might not be the best place to start. Honey is basically stealing from bees. But I met one vegan who said that he would choose honey over refined sugar because sugar is refined with bone char. I respect that.

    Of course you hurt a cow to get milk. Milking a cow involves treating the cow like a machine made purely for human use. It’s called exploitation. Baby cows don’t get to drink milk – instead they drink their mothers’ blood – because humans are busy drinking the milk. But hey, why don’t we milk humans if it “don’t hurt a human” to milk them? After all, human milk is healthier for humans than cow milk. What’s really bizarre is that humans are supposed to be weaned after a year or so of life. Instead, we’re never weaned, we go on drinking milk until the day we die. Meanwhile, baby cows are weaned from day one and never see their mothers again. We live in a sick and cruel world. Welcome to humankind.

    LOL! That’s brilliant. Normally, when people say they love cheese, I say, “That’s what I said.” But maybe it’s more effective to say, “I love cheese, but I don’t eat it because that’s gross.” Hahaha.

    I’m not missing out. You, however, are missing out on endless fields of compassion and love and kindness. You are missing out on a chance to change the world. You are missing out on all the friends you’d make in the animal kingdoms. You are missing out on delicious vegan food. You are missing out on liberation for all beings. Man, you’re missing out big time.

    There ARE other logical conclusions. Having been on many farms and witnessed very loving care of animals that feed people, I have no problem consuming animal products. Your conclusion is arrogant – allowing that only you and those in complete agreement with you are correct.

    What one eats should be a personal choice. I also agree with the person who pointed out that each person may handle certain foods differently. I have met people who naturally limit meat in their diet and feel fine. I, on the other hand, find that if I don’t have meat of fish at least ince per day I am not satisfied and can’t eat enough fruits and vegetables – it would be perpetual hunger without meat for me.

    It certainly would be difficult to be vegan and travel the world. Your itinerary would certainly be limited.

  12. Isis says

    Jeez, why would they ever do this?! Yeah I like animals but the great thing about what we call them is ‘animals’ which implies that they are beneath humans, so part of the food chain! It is a personal choice- but I like my cheese and my chicken so I’d never go vegan or even vegetarian.

    “What rights should animals have?”

    Animals should have the right to equal consideration of their interests. For instance, a dog most certainly has an interest in not having pain inflicted on him or her unnecessarily. We are, therefore, obliged to take that interest into consideration and to respect the dog’s right not to have pain unnecessarily inflicted upon him or her. However, animals don’t always have the same rights as humans because their interests are not always the same as ours, and some rights would be irrelevant to animals. For instance, a dog doesn’t have an interest in voting and, therefore, doesn’t have the right to vote because that right would be as meaningless to a dog as it is to a child.

    i can understand why some people goes vegetarian and all but frankly if you look closely… that’s stupid! sorry if i offense but if everybody stop eating meat just to be compassionate (talk about an absurdity) then cows and others animals have absolutly no more necessity. people have farms and all just to satisfy people demand and they will stop that as soon as it’s no more bringing money. so… no demand no animals. that’s simple.
    on the other hand, the vegan thing is the most stupid thing ever! what’s wrong with drinking milk and eating egg? can you explain me what harm it does to animals? so you have it once again, if a cow doesn’t produce meat and milk then you don’t need cows and it disappear. think about it!

    99% of you should stay off these boards and get a fuckin education. I am glad there are still numerous morons out here in America cuz all you degenerates are keeping me in a job. I am a veggie border line vegan and I am also a personal trainer, nutritionist and life style consultant. I never push my views on people but I do give them the proper tools and education so they can see exactly what they are putting into their bodies. Eating meat in 2009 is absolutely unnecessary. To those who say you cant work out with out eating meat…where do you live? Under a fuckin rock? I am a hard core lifter and I have the body of an 18 year old, my skin is perfect, my hair is amazing, I am never hungry and when I eat I make CONSCIOUS decisions. Pull your heads out of your asses people, the ignorant ones are always the fat ones these days. Saying that if we stop eating cows then we don’t need them? Is that a joke? How the fuck do you think plants grow? Try manure. That comes from cows. How about leather shoes and crap? Are you serious? I have to go I feel the stupidity rubbing off on me. America Is in great great danger when the fuck did the idiots take over. Maybe you all should try compassion sometime it would be nice to see a happy smiling face sometimes instead of fat assed bitches everywhere I turn. Yuck.

  17. Louche says

    I do not understand what is so “HARD” about going vegan. There are plenty of people who have very little money by American standards who are vegan. Let me tell you something… it’s “hard” to be gay, too. Twenty-five percent of all homeless youth are LGBT individuals. Why did they choose to live true to themselves when they could’ve hidden and had life “easy”? Because, actually, hiding was probably HARDer for them than living a lie. And, for me, eating meat and eggs and dairy would be HARDer than veganism because I would feel so guilty that THEN *I* would be the one having a nervous breakdown. I had a freaking nervous breakdown when I watched the animal farm videos. I cried. Yes, just like you, buddy. I cried more than once. I felt traumatized. You know, that feeling where the world twists so far around into the realm of suffering that it stops making sense. I’m okay now…. now that I’m vegan and working to promote veganism. Now there’s a reason to live. But I know something’s wrong when you feel traumatized more by having to leave a restaurant than by the thought of contributing to so much pain and suffering. I felt bad for four days because I had to refuse a bloody piece of Japanese candy… do you know how pathetic that is? I realized shortly thereafter that actually I don’t need Japanese candy and I was just being selfish. I don’t need to eat at restaurants either and usually avoid them (did so before going vegan anyway). I went to a restaurant with nothing vegan once and felt like crap until they offered me a vegan salad……. but you know, I don’t blame veganism, buddy. I blame the terrible system to which the restaurant belongs, I blame ignorance, I blame history… but there’s really no point in blaming anyway. Just change it. You have the power within you. Have some courage, have some self-discipline. That is, if you still care. Kudos to you for giving veganism a go. But please come back. Each one of us who practices veganism is building a better world. And get this… I am using my own live to advocate and promote veganism in this world… one day, you will see that it’s easier because of the work of today’s vegans. You’ll come back either way. Peace and love to you and the world!

    it’s SO natural? you are not killing the cow!! to make that….
    can someone tell me why?

    • Natalie says

      Well, first of all, it’s kind of weird that you think it’s natural for humans to drink the milk of another species! We’re the only animal that does that and it’s bizarre, cows milk is meant for baby cows not us. There are numerous health problems linked to dairy consumption and in fact most people in the world are lactose intolerant, it’s only a genetic mutation that allows adult humans to drink milk meant for the infants of another species without getting sick.

      And also cows are hurt and killed for milk production. Cows don’t produce milk unless they have a calf first so they are artificially inseminated with something called a ‘rape rack’ (no, seriously, look it up) and when they give birth their baby is taken away and either slaughtered for veal if it’s a male or raised to be another dairy cow if it’s female. And when dairy cows milk production starts to wane they don’t get to retire, they’re slaughtered for cheap hamburger meat. A cows natural lifespan can be as long as 30 years but dairy cows get slaughtered after 5 when they are no longer ‘useful’

      Add to that the fact that they’re kept in cramped dirty conditions on factory farms and often get painful udder infections and are pumped with hormones to make them produce more milk faster it’s all very unappetizing indeed.

    animals eat animals because they don’t KNOW any better and that is what they are inherently supposed to do. I have given up red meat, chicken, and pork entirely and I have never felt better (physiologically and spiritually). My skin is clear as well and I have MUCH regular bowel movements as a result of increased raw fruits and vegetables and CLEAN protein sources (nuts, legumes, etc). Meat eaters are basically eating feces in one form or another. Grow up and EDUCATE yourselves people. The world is just as much for the animals as it is for us.

    Vera is this posted by you or one of your writers? I know you openly have some writers that contribute to the site and can’t always tells who is sharing a personal experience. From hearing you talk about cooking etc. in the past I can’t see how eggs, milk, cheese etc. can get left out in the cold. So anyway, I’m confused : ) will you clear it up?

  30. Betty (who eats vegan for health reasons) says

    I am really shocked at how many people here do not understand veganism. Check out the American Dietetic Association’s position paper affirming that a vegan diet is a safe and healthy diet for all people at any stage of life, including childhood, pregnancy, old age, and for all types of people, including athletes. It’s not hard to find this information, so please do some research and refrain from judging something you don’t understand.

    If you want to know why animal products are unhealthy, read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. Animal proteins are linked to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, MS, and many more diseases. The reason we don’t hear more about this is because of the influence of the meat and dairy industries (the dairy industry supplies much of the nutrition education in our elementary schools, a clear conflict of interest), and because people think that Americans just won’t do it.

    If you are worried about protein — most Americans eat 2-4 times as much protein as they need to, and beans, nuts, and soy are all great sources of protein. B12? Eat fortified cereal like Cheerios. Calcium? Soy milk and green vegetables like Swiss Chard and broccoli. Actually, high animal protein diets cause calcium to leach from your bones, so dairy does not guard against osteoporosis — actually, it can cause it.

    Cutting animal products out of your life is actually not that hard. There are replacements for everything, soy milk and almond milk are delicious and healthy, you can put soy creamer in your coffee, and there are whole books devoted to vegan baking. Veganism does not have to be difficult or expensive.

    As for the ethical reasons not to consume dairy and eggs — the dairy and egg industries are unnatural. Chickens are kept in small cages without enough room to move and are treated as machines. As for cows, they only produce milk when pregnant — just like a human. A cow never needs to be milked, and their milk is intended for their babies. Dairy cows are artificially inseminated to have babies every year so they will continue to produce milk. Their babies are sold for veal and after they stop producing milk they are killed for their meat. So, if you are against eating cows, you can’t support the dairy industry. I also want to point out — cow’s milk is 22% protein and human milk is 7%. They are vastly different and cow’s milk is the perfect food for baby cows, just like human milk is the perfect food for baby humans. Humans weren’t meant to drink cow’s milk.

    As far as honey, some vegans eat it, some vegans don’t.

    I hope that was helpful, and I encourage everyone to do some more research!

  31. starlitbetty says

    I’m a pescatarian… I don’t eat gelatin, mammals, birds, etc… just fish. I tried going without fish but I just needed more protein that I wasn’t getting from soy milk, peanuts, beans, and other foods. I’ve never tried being officially vegan, I only drink soy milk because I don’t like the taste of regular milk, but I find being what I am hard enough so hopefully someday it can be easier that way I can do it without examining everything I eat. I know that if it wasn’t so difficult then more people would at least try it! Not eating meat at least has made me feel so much better so I hope that everyone can at least give it a chance. It it also so much better for you because cholesterol comes from animal products so without them you lower your cholesterol… this is just one of the benefits!

    I have to add that I think statements like “I couldn’t live without meat” or “I have to eat cheese” are lame excuses. I love donuts, but I don’t eat them because that’s gross. And anyway, vegan cheese and ice cream are tasty.

  33. Alice Lopresti says

    It IS possible to be healthy and vegan. It is also possible to be healthy, vegan, and athletic. My fiance and I have been vegetarian for 5 years and vegan for 3, have had bone density scans recently and have bone densities of 15% higher than the average for our age, and we are both active. In fact, he runs marathons regularly and his pb (whilst vegan I add) was under 3 hours.

    I think the arguments for/against veganism aren’t to do with being healthy/being unable to do all the things you want to in life. It comes down to whether or not you actually give a shit about other living things on this planet. Animals sadly ARE made to be eaten, that is the sick way of the farming industry. Whether or not they SHOULD be bred in such a way is another matter all together.

    I would suggest that those of you who have arguments against vegetarianism/veganism along the lines of ‘it is unhealthy and stupid and you cannot run or live and the whole world would die out if we all went vegan’ should do some reading.

    Good first point of call? Juliet Gellatley’s The Silent Ark.

    Be informed in your decisions, instead of going through life ignorant of the damage and pain that is a consequence of factory farming and your consumer decisions.

    Go vegan. It is the only logical conclusion.

    You certainly can live just fine vegan – with proteins and vitamins and whatnot — but it’s not as easy, of course, as not being vegan. Everybody’s body handles things differently. I’m not vegan, but I’m pescatarian. A couple of times I thought I’d give beef a try but I just feel awful after – not a allergy but my body just doesn’t want it in it. I also cut out eggs and milk whenever possible. *shrug* I think we should just find what kinds of food make our own body work the best, and stick with those. Which are of course going to be different for everybody.

(i’m 24) a lot of people who say you can’t be vegan because you need the protein is a complete myth. i think you say that because you like the taste of meat 2much, or you just don’t know any better. my sister said the same thing. she was veg for a while & got sick, only because she didn’t know how to take care of herself, she said she wasn’t gettn enuff protein. she eats meat now & she’s more of a mess than ever, hense it was never the protein that was the problem. i just wanna give props to all the veggies & vegans! being vegan can be hard, you just have to know what your doing, & how to take care of yourself properly. being healthy is hard, because your making conscience decisions instead of throwing fast food in your mouth. knowing exactly what goes in2 your body at all time. i respect any1 who does that. & animals r just so darn cute, how can you eat them?

    Humans are animals too so what’s wrong with cannibalism? I hear we make pretty tasty bacon.
