Tia Mowry has joined forces with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to proclaim her vegan status loudly and clearly — no matter what response she might get on social media sites.
“I became a vegan and I was getting bullied a lot on Twitter,” the 34-year-old told PETA. “There’s a stigma about being vegan, some people say it doesn’t taste great… Don’t knock it till you try it!”
Mowry, who looks both slim and gorgeous striking a pose in a lettuce dress and red heels for the ad campaign, continued, “The more you learn about the benefits of being vegan, the more you become alive and the more you become aware of why it’s a really great decision.
“Not only am I helping myself, I’m helping the animals out there, I’m helping the environment — going vegan, I feel great.”

Sharing a recipe for millet croquettes on her and sister Tamera Mowry’s fan site, the mother of Cree (who will celebrate his third birthday on June 28) with husband Cory Hardrict blogged, “Now that Cory and I have gone vegan, we’ve been exploring lots of lesser-known healthy foods (just take a look inside my fridge — it’s kind of crazy in there!). One of these foods is millet.”
Insisting the dish turned out “delicious,” Tia Mowry added, “If you associate this grain with birds, you’re correct — it’s commonly used as birdseed in North America. But I swear I’m not crazy — countries like Russia, Germany, India and China have incorporated millet into their diet for years.”
