VV- So Victoria have you left the glamourous modelling life behind completely or do you still manage to fit some in?
VE- I’m lucky to be able to dedicate most of my time to animal rescue in some shape or form but yes I still model. I will be walking the runway at the ideal home exhibition in March in London.
VV- So vegan wise can you describe your current diet?
VE- My current diet is 100% vegan and will be until the day I die.
My typical day’s diet would be fresh juice in the morning. Something like ½ a pineapple, 2 apples, strawberries, blueberries, one cucumber and 4 sticks of celery. In the afternoon when I’m home which is most days I may have tofu stir fry, vegan burger no bread and huge salad or Spinach lasagne from the night before. If I’m out for lunch I may go to Wagamama for Tofu Phad Thai no egg or go to Mildred’s in Soho for a huge salad or vegan burger no chips.
For dinner I may have homemade stew, homemade Spinach gluten free lasagna, and roasted veg on a bed of fresh spinach.
VV- Why did you go Vegan?
VE- I turned vegetarian at age 6 which was triggered by my father bringing home 2 tiny cute chicks. I asked my parents a lot of questions and refused to eat meat which was a bit of a rarity for a child in the 70s to stop eating meat. I then became a vegan 10 years ago after hearing Viva! Founder Juliet Gellatley giving a speech on the ‘Dark side of Dairy’ I immediately gave up dairy and I haven’t looked back.
