Evanna Lynch shares her top tips for a vegan diet


Well, I went vegan a few years ago, after being vegetarian for years. And I was vegetarian because of animals, because I didn’t agree with killing animals or exploiting them. And I didn’t understand veganism, I thought they were all nuts and I thought it was too restrictive of a lifestyle. That’s really what my perception of it was. And then, a few years ago, I started meeting more vegans and activists and gained more interest in that side of things, and was always asked “Why are you not vegan?” I started to research that and learned about those things and the more I read, the more horrified I was by what was going on and the more I realised ‘that isn’t me’, I need to be vegan, I am vegan in my soul. So I transitioned to veganism. For me, veganism, is just about equality, it’s about recognising that just because something is different, doesn’t mean you should exploit it or use it, and it’s not it’s not… it doesn’t mean that you have more right to life than an animal does. Because I see that, I think humans were threatened by diversity you know, even with other people… People of different faith and people of different colours… Anything that just… that is too different from us. We feel threatened and we want to kind of crush it or destroy it. And I think, you know, humans are protected, we have laws in place for that and all humans look human, but animals are just a little bit too different. And I think that’s the only reason why people think it’s okay to exploit them, but I personally don’t believe diversity is a good enough reason for exploitation. I think they can teach us about ourselves, and I think life is precious and… that, yeah, as I say, their lives aren’t worth less than us. I mean, I might value my mom’s life more than a cow but that doesn’t mean that the cow’s life is worth less, it doesn’t mean… I mean, fortunately I don’t have to choose between them. They can both co-exist and I think to me veganism is about co-existing peacefully. And I also think, like, people often say to me “Why do you care so much about animals? Why can’t you care more about people?” and it’s like, this is for people as well, you don’t even have to be an animal lover. Because veganism, it benefits the planet so much we have all the facts that the animal agriculture industry is destroying the planet, it’s the… has the greatest adverse effect on the planet and also choosing a vegan diet, which we have we have available to us, that can have the greatest impact. That’s part… As an individual, you can have the greatest impact on on reducing climate change and reducing global warming through a plant-based diet. So, yeah, as I say I think it’s a people t hing as well. And erm… There’s simple steps you can take, so I encourage everyone to try ‘The Vegan Society’s 7 day vegan challenge’. Plate up for the Planet and do it with your friends, you know, get people involved, really dive in and learn about it and support each other. It will be fun. The best advise I got when I went vegan was to focus on crowding out animal products from your diet. So don’t think of it as restrictive or deprivation because it’s absolutely not that. It’s about adding in new vegan foods. You know, there’s lots of meat substitutes and there’s cheese alternatives, there’s chocolate alternatives, there’s everything. So focus on adding in new plant based products before you lose… you know, before you take everything out. And you’ll find that it is a very abundant, joyful lifestyle and it’s not about sacrifice. I would also say, get your friends involved and join communities, join a vegan group or even something like following vegan people or vegan businesses online, so it becomes your norm, because I think a big problem about being vegan is you feel like the odd one out. You feel like an alien. And nobody wants to feel like, they’re the outcast or they’re not involved in the fun. Especially as food is such a sharing thing, so yeah, get friends together and maybe have a vegan potluck. Use it as a chance to experiment and that’ll make it a lot more fun and a lot more normal and you won’t feel like such a weirdo.

  5. i remember this familiar face, so glad to discover she is vegan as well! <3

  6. She has a beautiful speaking voice.

  7. oh my god i am vegan ( this is robs daughter ) and i love harry potter. i used to be upset that i was sorted into being luna lovegood, now i understand and am sooo glad.

  8. I had the great pleasure of briefly chatting to Evanna after the play Disco Pigs ( which was brilliant ). I took my copy of Vegan Life ( which Evanna was in ), to see if Evanna would sign it,,, no doubt at all. We even had a small chat about being vegan. Wish i could of chatted more about many subjects. Evanna is a beautiful human inside and out. Thank you for chatting with me.

  9. I love this lady. It's so sad and frustrating that this video is only at around 3,000 views.

  10. Chocolate alternatives? The stuff that contains dairy isn't real chocolate!

  11. luna <3

  12. I love her voice

  13. She is so hot!

  14. She's cute but misinformed. It's not about plant vs. animal. It's about processed vs. unprocessed. Fresh, wild caught game is one of the most healthy things you can put in your body. Veganism is a fad diet geared toward virtue signalers. So sad to see the young seduced by it's hollow charms.

  15. Well said , I fell in love with this girls gentleness in the Harry Potter movies and could see she was basically being herself in the Movie , a deeply compassionate individual <3

  16. +

  17. I love this video so much

  18. Wonderful! 🙏🏻❤️

  19. Well said Luna. Gosh she is beautiful

  20. She has a very pleasant attitude about presenting why she is vegan – I think that one of the biggest enemies of veganism is vegans who act self-righteous and better-than-thou about it. I expect it's difficult to avoid that stereotype as a vegan, so all the braver of her to speak her mind publicly. When I tell people I'm vegetarian, they often think I'm vegan and sort of wrinkle their nose a bit until I explain my diet. I aim to transition to vegan once I get on my feet financially, but it's unpopular where I currently live and so the dairy substitutes are rare and expensive.

  21. 0:26 I can’t judge any one who a vegan 🌱 but I’m still eating what I choose! Hopefully my food was put down with out Suffering

  22. This girl is a genius and sound very genuine

  23. Ok her views are fare ! I’m saying this not because ❤️❤️❤️ but I can see in her eyes how much it gets to her! And spreading her opinions on being vegan it will be a while before I consider doing but I can’t bash anyone for going vegan

  24. I wish there were tips for places that aren't yet up to par with first world countries in terms of vegan options. Sometimes there are things available but they are just so darn pricey you can't afford them, and when trying to go by buying what you can afford your health (at least in my case) is usually compromised by a great deal.

  25. Expeliarmus

  26. I loved her since i watched ootp! I want to go vegan so much! She’s so inspiring. She speaks the truth💕

  27. What a beautiful, magnificent girl. Beautiful in every way I can see. The way she speaks, her good heart, her concern for other beings, her intelligence, and above all, her sincerity. This girl is pouring sincerity and honesty upon us. I am in absolute awe to see this.

  28. Good for her, although her skin is loosing light and is starting to look fade, so she should take care more of herself. Vitamin A is ONLY found in animal products though.

  29. I love her so much!!

  30. What a beautiful skin

  31. She's vegan? So THAT'S why she's not been looking so good and healthy as of late. Vegans are starving their body of nutrients, we barely get any from plant foods.
    Our species have coveted organ meats and animal fat and other high, nutrient dense foods such as seafood for our entire history

  32. She looks very unhealthy. Humans are meant to eat animals, and it shows.

  33. Greetings from the Czech Republic and I would like to say that many thanks for the tips Evanna Lynch is the perfect person. With it, there is still hope and the world is a better place to live with it. Personally, I am against the animal industry. Animals and people should have the same rights to life and love. I give thumbs up as an expression of consent with Evanna Lynch and that people stop supporting animal products. I believe that people will once understand that animals must not be hurt and that these living beings like us want to live not to die. The world will be fine when all the people are vegans or veggies. / Zdravím z České republiky a chtěl bych říct, že mnohokrát děkuji za tipy Evanna Lynch je perfektní člověk. Díky ní je tu stále naděje a svět je díky ní lepším místem pro život. Osobně jsem proti živočišnému průmyslu. Zvířata a lidé mají mít stejná práva na život a lásku. Dávám palec nahoru jako vyjádření souhlasu s Evannou Lynch a tím, aby lidé přestali podporovat živočišné produkty. Věřím, že lidé jednou pochopí, že zvířatům se nesmí ubližovat a, že tyto živoucí bytosti jako my chtějí žít ne umírat. Na světe bude dobře, až budou všichni lidé vegani nebo vegetariáni.

  34. Omg no. You're dead to me!

  35. That was a fantastic nose job Evanna.
