Zac Efron

Alongside his Down to Earth docuseries on Netflix, Zac Efron has made some pretty major lifestyle changes, striving to help the environment and eat cleaner. Becoming vegan in 2018, Efron has been loving the results and how energetic he feels, citing veganism as the perfect complement to a rigorous workout routine. His vegan fix? Every morning he starts off the day with a “Spark Smoothie,” filled with avocado, spinach, raspberries, blueberries, banana, coconut water, almond milk, and chia seeds.

Influenced by her sister, Venus Williams, Serena adopted a vegan lifestyle after seeing its benefits.

Stevie Wonder

Adopting veganism in 2014, Stevie Wonder now swears by a plant-based lifestyle. His change in diet even helps him in promoting environmental issues and being kind to the environment. Though he is rather low-key in revealing his daily eating habits, Wonder has definitely been vocal about how great he feels after transitioning!
