Survivor reality TV alumni Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca are a couple that does everything together-including going vegetarian!
After Ethan’s recent diagonses with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s disease, the couple decided it was a good idea to start watching what they put in their bodies.
And since they were both obvious animal lovers, previously posing for an anti-fur ad, it seemed like one of the best choices the couple could make.
Here’s a tidbit from their recent interview with PETA.
Have you ever considered going vegetarian in the past?
Ethan: I was on a macrobiotic diet when I was younger and my father was ill. My entire family made the change to macro to help my father and the cancer he was battling. In addition, I was a vegetarian for 14 years before going on Survivor.
How did you make the transition? Was it gradual, or did you stop eating meat cold (faux) turkey?
Jenna: We actually made the transition pretty quickly—just cutting out everything right away. Now, with so many great faux-meat products, it’s not as hard as people think anymore to go vegetarian. For instance, in the grocery store are many great faux-meat options, like Gardenburger meatless buffalo chicken wings. Ethan was a huge fan of buffalo chicken wings, so these are a good replacement!
