You tell ‘em, Jessie J! On Wednesday, October 9, the “Masterpiece” singer, 31, took to her Instagram Story to share a disgruntled message about vegan food options in most hotels. “I’m seriously considering opening a hotel JUST to serve GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY, SEASONED, TASTY VEGAN FOOD,” Jessie began.
“Hotels need to sort it out. It’s always expensive AF. Unseasoned/raw [vegetables] and three bits of tofu (but only when you ask it to be added) and maybe rice, if you are lucky. Oh, and a ‘special pasta’ with a tomato sauce isn’t good enough,” she continued. “Vegan food doesn’t mean bland and boring and cooked badly. I MISS MY KITCHEN SO MUCH.”
As it happens, Jessie’s decision to go vegan wasn’t a matter of environmental politics or fitness. In fact, Channing Tatum’s ladylove changed her diet to combat chronic illness due to fertility issues. “All women and men go through fertility issues, and it’s something that’s very empowering for me to talk about,” Jessie explained to Plant Based News in July.
After undergoing “all these tests,” Jessie was advised to either “manage” her pain or “have a hysterectomy.” However, Jessie didn’t go with either of those options. “I decided to manage the pain and do it naturally. So, four years ago, I cut out sugar from my diet to try and stop bacteria from building up in my body,” she explained. “Once I cut out sugar, I realized how much I began to enjoy food when it was good for me — and it was balancing out everything — my health, my moods, my sleep.”
Eventually, Jessie completely cut out meat from her diet, too, followed by the decision to go fully vegan. The pop star has been following that lifestyle for over a year now. Admittedly, Jessie said she still has a lot to learn, but she’s giving veganism her all!
“It’s about knowledge and power and gaining understanding from the person that focuses on the food element of veganism, or animal cruelty or global warming,” the songstress concluded.
