Rosario Dawson and Boyfriend Cory Booker Stay Full and 'Energized' on a Raw Vegan Diet

Before Rosario Dawson and her boyfriend, 2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker, started dating earlier this year, they already had a major thing in common their vegan diets.

Booker went vegan almost 20 years ago, and Dawson, too, is a fan after discovering how good she feels on the plant-based diet.

Im mostly vegan and raw these days for my health and peace of mind, she tells PEOPLE. I rest better, I feel better, with less inflammation and more flexibility. I feel full without feeling uncomfortable or tired afterwards. I love the energy.

1. I got to hear Senator Booker at a Texas state party fundraiser

 

He gives a great speech. We made Senator booker a honorary Texan at that event

10. pretty small number make that choice, it is not mainstream hence why it is even "newsworthy"

 

vegan is at the extreme end of eating choices. perhaps not THE extremist, but past moderate for sure.

15. of course too much of that and no balance with fruits and vegs is kind of extreme too

 

we are at our best when we eat a variety of foods, including quality proteins from meat, colorful fruits and vegs - especially leafy greens, good carbs like whole grains and a bit of fat too.

of course you can get plenty of protein from plants but it isn't as easy and it sure doesn't taste as good. (hence the market for fake meats)

food and eating and the discussion about animal welfare is complex, but thinking one answer is THE answer is usually wrong.

there was the incident where he was completely amazed by the cheesy grits that his hotel served at breakfast in Mississippi. I have to say that I had a similar experience in Pensacola, Florida in 2004, when I saw what I thought was pumpkin pie available in April! Of course, it was sweet potato pie, and thank goodness I wasn't on the campaign trail!

4. How very strange to me.. Rosario Dawson Voted for Jill Stein.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Jill_Stein_2016_presidential_campaign_endorsements

On April 15, 2016, Dawson was among the protesters arrested during Democracy Spring in Washington, D.C.[30]

In the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Dawson endorsed U.S. Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein, saying she could not support either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, as she felt they were for the elites.[31]

Sorry, doesn't speak well for her critical thinking.

18. It reminds me of the Seattle Weekly column, Ask an Uptight Seattleite.

 

That was about a decade ago.

My sister in Seattle told me a Portlandia-type story about she and a friend at a restaurant. The waiter asks them if they'd like dessert and tells them about the specials, ice cream and cakes and so on. My sister launches into an explanation of how she can't have the ice cream because she's lactose intolerant and nothing with flour because of gluten intolerance and her friend tells him about her food intolerances and all the things she can't eat. Afterward they wondered, "Why couldn't we just have said, 'No, thank you'?"
