Shailene Woodley Explains Why She’s Not Vegan or Even Vegetarian

It would be fair to say that Shailene Woodley literally has an appetite for adventure. The actor has lived all over the world and thus has tried various foods from all different cultures. The Fallout star particularly has a palate for fermented foods and has learned how to make a lot of things herself. While foods like kimchi and drinks like kombucha are all the rage now (especially amongst the famous and wealthy) Woodley was enjoying them long before they became mainstream. And while Woodley is passionate about the environment, she doesn’t follow a strict vegan or vegetarian diet.

Woodley became interested in the environment after studying agriculture in high school. Her studies revealed to her the problems within the U.S. Food system and she began to understand how quickly natural resources were being depleted. Impassioned by her new knowledge, Woodley began to study native cultures to see how she could personally reduce her carbon footprint.
