Hailey Bieber Is Now ‘Mostly’ Plant-Based

Model Hailey Bieber says she's "mostly" plant-based. She and husband Justin have touted the benefits of the vegan diet before.

Hailey Bieber says she’s still following a predominantly plant-based diet, and has “never felt better.”

The 24-year-old model, who is married to pop singer Justin Bieber, recently shared a picture of a gluten-free lemon poppyseed cake to her Instagram Story. “Over the past 2 and ½ months I completely cut meat (other than fish) out of my daily eating and have been sticking to more vegetarian/vegan dishes,” she wrote.

She continued: “I have never felt better! Feel so clear and energetic. Just sharing for anyone who may be thinking about cutting out meat!”

Hailey Bieber Wants to ‘Keep Exploring’ Plant-Based

This isn’t the first time Bieber has talked about her plant-based diet. In August 2020, she shared a photo of a homemade, plant-based dinner to her then 28 million Instagram followers. The meal consisted of soup and vegetable sushi. However, she added that she still occasionally eats sushi containing fish. She originally announced her pivot to a more vegetable-forward diet in July of that year.

“Trying to transition over to eating mostly plant-based, about to watch ‘The Game Changers,'” she wrote in an Instagram Story.

The James Cameron-produced documentary explores vegan athletes and the misconception that you need to eat meat in order to compete. The film features some of the world’s most well-known plant-based athletes, including former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and six-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton.

She added: “If you have any suggestions of other things to watch read send them my way!”

In 2019, Bieber visited Monty’s Good Burger, a Los Angeles-based vegan fast-food joint. She shared a photo of her meal, which included three vegan burgers, two milkshakes, fries, and tater tots. She then turned to Instagram for advice on vegan food.

In an Instagram Story, she wrote: “So I’m not vegan or vegetarian. I’m half Brazilian so trust me I love a good pichana…BUT I will say over the last week or so I have tried some of the most unbelievable vegan food I’ve ever had, and I want to keep exploring plant-based!”

​​The Biebers Embrace Veganism

Bieber’s husband may have something to do with her interest in veganism.

Just a week prior to her Monty’s visit, Justin Bieber advocated that vegans should be given $100,000 per year.

This comes after American rapper Riff Raff shared a post on Twitter, stating: “I just remembered I can run for president.”

He outlined the policy changes he would make if he was elected president. These included free college, free health care, and no taxes. “If you are vegan you get $100k a year,” the rapper added.

Bieber shared the Twitter post on his Instagram Story to the more than 120 million followers he had at the time. The singer added “vote” stickers to the post so his followers could get involved.

Just like his wife, Bieber also enjoys eating vegan food. In 2017, he was spotted eating a vegan breakfast with his former girlfriend, Selena Gomez. The pair dined at JOi Café, an organic, plant-based cafe in California.And in May 2019, the singer teamed up with Schmidt’s Naturals to launch a cruelty-free, vegan deodorant, Here + Now. The deodorant is made with natural ingredients like coconut oil and arrowroot powder.
