Although Brad Pitt is vegan, and has been for a long time, his wife-to-be Angelina Jolie does not share his way of life. “I was a vegan for a long time, and it nearly killed me. I found I was not getting enough nutrition,” she said. This is a problem that plagues many people who try to go vegan, but don’t educate themselves on what types of foods they need for proper nutrition. Doing things like: drinking Vitamin D-fortified almond, coconut or soy milk, eating rice and beans, consuming nuts and seeds, securing a source of Vitamin B12, and lots of leafy greens help in ensuring proper nutrition.
Brad Pitt, on the other hand, hates red meat so much he gets annoyed whenever he witnesses Angelina eating it. Since Brad Pitt is vegan, he also gets mad when he sees his children eating animal based products. Jolie claims to have been initially inspired by Brad Pitt’s veganism, but now likes to joke that red meat is what gives her a great figure.
A source told the Daily Mail, a UK newspaper, that the couple was at odds over how to raise their children. The crux of the matter was whether or not the kids should eat meat. Pitt wants the children to avoid eating meat, but Jolie is not having it. The source told the Daily Mail:
“[Pitt] goes on about the damage caused by methane gases from cattle and that the family should go veggie but Angie says that’s never going to happen.”
For now, it looks like Angelina Jolie will not let Brad Pitt get his way. Her bad experience with going vegan years ago, means that their children will be omnivores as they grow up. No matter how much that disgusts Brad Pitt today.
