In 2001, Shania Twain was named PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Alive. This honor has also gone to stars like Olivia Wilde, Leona Lewis, and Alicia Silverstone. Carrie Underwood won the award twice. Shania Twain was never much of a carnivore, but after she married record producer Mutt Lange in 1993, Shania switched to full-time vegetarianism.
In recent years, the country crooner has kept digging her way further and further into the plant-based lifestyle. Her favorite dish was pasta (made with noodles without eggs), and Shania also drank shakes made with cream. On earlier tours, she often requested potato chips and highly processed popcorn snacks in her dressing room. Apparently this was before Shania Twain turned into a fully fledged vegan. Vegans don’t typically eat things like processed cheese snacks.
After turning vegan, Shania Twain began to incorporate more raw food into her diet. A few years ago, she took the plunge into a total raw food diet, just like actress Evangeline Lilly. A raw food diet doesn’t necessarily mean that Shania only ate carrots all day long. Since the human body also needs healthy fats that you can’t get by eating salad greens, a raw food diet also requires things like avocados, nuts, and seeds. Raw foodists can also use dehydration to “cook” food so that it resembles dishes like pizza or tacos.
Dieters should always consult a dietitian before trying such an extreme diet to ensure that they get all the required nutrients. Shania Twain seems to be getting plenty of protein. She starts her day with a soy shake and fresh fruit every morning. Shania Twain also enjoys juicing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, like oranges, beets, bananas, and broccoli.
Shania Twain has been a little less specific about what she typically eats for lunch and dinner, but she has said that she always eats chickpeas, soybeans, or black beans for those meals. Shania Twain prefers eating lighter foods on a tour, so for lunch she might have a vegetable soup. On a raw food diet, soup is blended and served at room temperature. Before becoming a raw foodist, Shania Twain often enjoyed vegetable stir-fries with tofu for dinner. A raw food swap for rice is grated cauliflower, mixed with yeast flakes and salt.
Shania Twain often took her horse on tour with her. Horseback riding is one of her favorite exercises. She generally prefers to work out away from the gym. Shania Twain also enjoys yoga and Pilates. She also dances and goes for power walks.
