David Duchovny Holy Cow

Most know David Duchovny for his good looks and film roles, but many may not be aware that he’s also a pretty educated individual.

He holds a degree in English literature from Princeton and began a PhD in the same discipline at Yale.

Mr. Smarty Pants must know a thing or two about the meat and dairy industry as he’s created a satirical, but wise tale about a cow that decides to emigrate to India once she discovers the horrors of the factory farms in America.

Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale is the first novel from the X-Files and Californication actor.

Your Sister's Sister

The vegan pancakes cooked during an episode of Your Sister’s Sister featuring Emily Blunt and Rosemarie DeWitt as long lost half-sisters reunited were best described as “challenged.”

Writer of the comedy series Lynn Shelton says the scene was inspired by her real life attempt to create an egg-free version of the fluffy flapjack, the kindest words that could be used to describe them being “glue.”

“I have a ridiculous diet. Although, as Mark pointed out earlier, if we put my actual diet on screen nobody would believe it. So I was poking fun at myself. And those particular pancakes came out of a disaster years ago, which was the first time I’d ever tried using flax to replace eggs.”

Al Sharpton

“I don’t eat any meat. I only eat fish twice a week, and I eat only vegetables and fruit, and I’ve lost total. … I was at my height about 305, now I’m down to 180, 185.”

Al Sharpton, during an interview on The Wendy Williams Show. Just a quick reminder to Al and the rest of you pescatarians–fish is meat too. But congratulations to him for making a drastic change in his life for better health.

Jan Maxwell has seen success on the stage in productions like Follies and Lend Me A Tenor. Even though she’s following a mostly plant-based diet now, she would like to eat more award-winning vegan meals in the future.

“I’ve always been on some sort of diet,” Maxwell told Grubstreet. “The only thing that has really stuck for a couple of years now is that I’m gluten-free and a pescetarian with vegan aspirations. I’ve always wanted to be a vegetarian.”

The actress told the New York magazine what she eats in a typical week. There’s plenty of granola, Boca Burgers on gluten-free buns, vegetarian nachos and nuts on her menu.
