Orange is the New Black actor Danielle Brooks has announced she has been plant-based for two months – and it helped her learn to only use food as fuel.

Brooks, who plays Taystee in the highly-acclaimed Netflix series, has decided to try a plant-based diet in July, in a bid to go from living to eat to eating to live.

The actress has recently told the hosts of the ABC’s The Chew that it’s her two-month vegan anniversary.

She has previously spoken out about loving her ‘new vegan life’ on social media.

The star explained that she was raised on Southern comfort food, which had an impact on her eating habits.

She told the talk show hosts: “I like to eat. I’m from the South. You know, big mama’s mac and cheese, greens, chicken and all of that stuff.”

“But I was never taught how to eat properly, how food is fuel. So this is my way of teaching myself how to eat properly, how to eat to live I guess.”

Brooks has also cooked vegan mac and cheese with the chefs of The Chew, as well a pad Thai and a vegan gingerbread cake.
