Popular TV and film actress Ginnifer Goodwin was a zealous and dedicated vegan for 2 years.
She was even a spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt-A-Turkey project in 2009, adopting an entire flock herself.
She revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that she stopped eating vegan after experiencing some health issues which she did not disclose.
Ms. Goodwin stated:
I’m always learning and growing and changing and there were some boring health issues, and so I did actually have to work some animal products back into my diet.
She said that the first animal food she ate after her stint as a vegan was a scrambled egg from a farm where the chickens run free and are treated like pets. She admitted that is was the most delicious thing she had ever tasted.
She also revealed that her meal before coming on the Jimmy Kimmel show was meatloaf with bacon! Mmmm. I’m sure Ms Goodwin wasn’t contacted for a testimonial for What The Health, the biased, non-scientific pro-vegan Netflix film!
Sounds a bit like Angelina Jolie who once said that veganism “nearly killed” her and that a big, juicy steak is her beauty secret.

I’ve been vegan for 21 years and Ginnifer’s cousin JP has been vegan for maybe 30 years. We have thrived in this lifestyle, in fact I went from being sickly with numerous health problems to eradicating them all and being in great shape. She should’ve talked with JP a little more about how to eat vegan properly.
Isn’t it funny the way the universe works? How something that is good and works for you makes someone else ill? Because (shocker) not all people are the same! Our bodies do not all work the same way, and biologically, we were indeed made to consume some animal product. Count yourself lucky that you didn’t have to go back to eating meat, because it sucks, as an animal rights advocate, coming to the conclusion that if you want to be healthy, you have to consume some animal products. But hey, go ahead and assume you know more about her dietary health than she does, because it just happens to work for you.
This is so sad. Obviously she wasn’t eating the proper foods to get her all of the essential nutrients her body needed. Being vegan doesn’t make a person “healthy” if you eat things such as Oreos, potato chips, french fries, etc. Obviously, I don’t know if these were the types of “food” choices she was making as a vegan however; one can be unhealthy with any type of lifestyle eating plan if they are not wise with your food choices.
Just wish the video was available…
She was never vegan, obviously. Veganism isn’t a diet.
