Is Kim Kardashian Plant-Based Now?

Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to say she'd be eating plant-based and working out twice a day for the next 30 days.

Kim Kardashian kicked off the new year by going plant-based. And now it seems she may have converted some more members of her famous family to the lifestyle.

Her elder sister Kourtney Kardashian recently shared an image of a plant-based meal on her Instagram Story with the caption “vegan sister lunch.” She tagged Kim and younger sister Khloe Kardashian in the Story.

Kim re-shared the post with her own caption: “I’ve officially converted three family members!!!” She added the hashtag #PlantBasedLife.

In the following Instagram story, Kim revealed her brother also sent her vegan pizza and ice cream. She wrote: “How cute is my brother?”

Kim Kardashian Goes Plant-Based

In another Instagram Story earlier this year, the reality TV star shared a picture of some of Beyond Meat’s vegan meat products, including Beyond Breakfast Sausage, Beyond Meatballs, and Beyond Beef.

“Someone heard I went plant-based,” she captioned to her nearly 200 million followers. “Thank you @BeyondMeat.” The California-based vegan meat brand reposted the Story, writing: “We got you.”

Just one day prior, Kim talked about her new fitness routine. “Sister Boot Camp starts this month,” she wrote in an Instagram Story. “Plant based and two workouts a day for 30 days to get our mind and body right this year!”

Although she only mentioned she’d be eating plant-based for the next month, this isn’t the first time Kim has talked about veganism. The beauty mogul—who founded cruelty-free cosmetics line KKW Beauty—first revealed she ditched meat and dairy back in 2019.

The mom of four began promoting vegan food on her social media accounts. In a Twitter post, she revealed her children were joining her in going plant-based, with the exception of her daughter, North, who still eats fish.

Making the Switch

Kim later revealed she made the switch to help reduce her lifelong battle with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

“Before the arthritis hit, I spent about four months doing everything natural—every ointment, cream, serum, and foam you can possibly imagine and everything from the dermatologist,” she wrote in a blog post on Kourtney’s Poosh website. 

“I even tried an herbal tea that tasted like tar. I tried celery juice for eight weeks. Then I’d do celery juice mixed with the tea. I would do that twice a day. I was just exhausted by everything. I changed my diet to plant-based (which I still follow),” she added.

Former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson may have helped encourage Kim to embrace a cruelty-free lifestyle.

In 2017, Anderson sent a letter to Kim encouraging her to ditch her fur coats. Anderson wrote, “[T]imes are changing. You know I love you, and you can be a hero for animals as well as a great example to all your beautiful followers.”

Kim later revealed she had replaced all of her fur coats with vegan versions. “Remember when I wore this! She picked out the same look lol but fun fact- I took all of my fave furs and remade them in faux fur,” Kim shared on Instagram to her then 141 million followers along with a photo of her daughter North playing with a white fur coat.

In early 2020, the reality star gave a tour of the contents of her refrigerator and pantry, which featured plant-based milk, lots of produce, and Beyond Meat products.
