Default Bill Clinton dishes on vegan diet

Bill Clinton dishes on vegan diet

By Caitlin McDevitt
July 31, 2013

After three years on a vegan diet, former President Bill
Clinton says he doesn’t crave steak. But cutting back on
bread has been tough.

"Heavily processed carbs, you really have to control
that," Clinton told AARP in a recent interview about his
eating habits. The former president, now 66, went on a
strict diet after a health scare in 2010, and he says
he's kept it up.

"I just decided that I was the high-risk person [for
heart problems], and I didn't want to fool with this
anymore. And I wanted to live to be a grandfather,"
Clinton said. "So I decided to pick the diet that I
thought would maximize my chances of long-term survival."

Vegans don’t eat animal products, so fruits, vegetables
and grains are okay but no meat or dairy.

"The main thing that was hard for me actually — much
harder than giving up meat, turkey, chicken and fish —
was giving up yogurt and hard cheese," the former
president said. "I love that stuff, but it really made a
big difference when I did it."

Clinton, famous for his hearty appetite in the White
House, has admitted before that he cheats sometimes. But
for the most part, he seems to like the new lifestyle.
(It helps, of course, if someone is cooking for you.)

According to the article, Clinton usually has an almond-
milk smoothie for breakfast, a green salad for lunch and
often a quinoa dish or a veggie burger for dinner. He’ll
snack sometimes on nuts ("Those are good fats," he
explained) and gets creative when he has a craving.

If he wants something starchy, for instance, Clinton
said, "You can make whipped cauliflower as a substitute
for mashed potatoes, and it's great."
