Actor Jenna Dewan Tatum On Why She Eats ‘Mainly Vegan’


1 Minutes Read

Dancer and actor Jenna Dewan Tatum has shared details of her diet – explaining that she eats ‘mostly vegan’.

The star told Health that she sometimes veers off the plant-based path, generally because husband Channing Tatum is an omnivore.


She said: “I eat mostly vegan, but I’m very accommodating, maybe because I’ve lived with a man for 11 years who’s not vegetarian.

“Chan will do meatless, and most of the time it’s what I’m cooking.

“He’ll do pasta, risottos, things that have a carb element.”


According to Dewan Tatum, her four-year-old daughter Evie doesn’t eat meat.

She said: “Evie is a vegetarian, mostly because I cook for her and it’s what I feel to be healthy for her and easiest.

“She loves it and wears it like a badge. She will tell everyone, ‘I’m a vegetarian. I don’t eat meat’.

“I tell her, ‘Ev, you can try anything you want,’ but she’s like, ‘Ugh’ – very much a chip off the old block in that way.”
