Lizzo’s 7 Favorite Vegan Snacks, According to TikTok
Lizzo is both a culinary adventurer and a creature of habit when it comes to the kitchen. Here are the vegan snacks she returns to time and time again.
ll the rumors are true—Lizzo is vegan. And, since 2020, she’s been extremely vocal about it, especially on TikTok, where she showcases everything from her homemade, multi-component recipes to unfussy, off-the-cuff snack pairings. If you want to snack like Lizzo (and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to be like the internationally-acclaimed performer and artist?), we’ve listed out all of her favorites for you below. But first, here’s a little bit more about why she decided to adopt a plant-based diet in the first place.
Why is Lizzo vegan?
Lizzo hasn’t eaten meat for quite a while. Before she went vegan in 2020, she was a vegetarian for seven years. But according to the singer, she decided to ditch animal products completely because it makes her feel good. “I try to keep everything I put in my body super clean. Health is something I prioritize, wherever that leads me physically. Like veganism, people were like, ‘You’re a vegan? What, are you deep frying the lettuce?,” she told Vanity Fair in 2022. “I’m not a vegan to lose weight, I just feel better when I eat plants.”
What is Lizzo’s favorite snack?
Lizzo is always posting on TikTok, and because she enjoys food (“Food is fun. I love eating,” she told Vanity Fair), she regularly updates followers on her favorite snacks and treats. In fact, the singer actually uses her platform as a vessel to play out her former dream of becoming a food critic—hence the Instagram handle, @lizzobeeating (Lizzo Be Eating).
Ever since she posted a vegan version of McDonald’s spicy chicken sandwich, we’ve been hooked on Lizzo’s food videos. The star makes plenty of smoothies, salads, and mouthwatering mains, but today, we’re focused on the vegan snacks. From plant-based hot Cheetos to toast and jam, here are seven of Lizzo’s favorite vegan snacks, according to TikTok.
Before going vegan, Lizzo’s savory snack of choice was a handful of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. While she admitted the chips triggered her acid reflux, she still craved that cheesy, spicy crunch as a vegan. In search of a plant-based alternative, she’s given PeaTos, Takis, Lesser Evil Paleo Puffs, and Outstanding Puffs a try. All four received solid reviews from the celeb, which is essentially as good as receiving a James Beard Award for the snack category.
