Padma Lakshmi's Daughter Is Lacto Vegetarian

Padma Lakshmi is a vegetarian

Padma Lakshmi is a vegetarian – Lakshmi’s daughter, Krishna Thea, is lacto-vegetarian. Why did Lakshmi shift to vegetarianism?

Lakshmi explains their vegetarian lifestyle quite simply: “She [Krishna] eats what I eat. She’s on a lacto-vegetarian Indian diet. She’s still breastfeeding, that’s where the lacto part comes in. She can’t eat the spicy food that I love since it would be too hard on her system but other than that she’ll eat the foods that I make for her.”

Lakshmi is no stranger to being a vegetarian, as she grew up eating that way… but decided to make the move back just recently.

“I grew up a vegetarian,” Lakshmi explains. “Then, because I grew up in the states, I started slowly eating meat. First it was bologna sandwiches, or pepperoni on pizza. As a teenager, [my friends and I] would always go have burgers. I would scarf them down!”

Looks like now that Lakshmi is a vegetarian, she won’t be doing Hardee’s commercials any more!
