One of the biggest weddings of the season is coming up - Chelsea Clinton will be marrying her long-time boyfriend and investment banker Marc Mezvinsky. The wedding will be held on an estate in Rhinebeck, New York later this year. The menu will be almost entirely vegan.
An insider recently told Life & Style magazine, “Chelsea is a vegan. The food will include vegan, and gluten-free dishes, but there will also be grass-fed organic beef on the menu.”
Besides eating a totally plant-based diet, Clinton is also allergic to gluten and will, therefore, be choosing a gluten-free, vegan wedding cake for the big day.
According to the Vegetarian Star, Chelsea has been cutting meat and dairy since childhood — and leaned on White House chefs to help in preparing her vegan meals.
While it's disappointing to hear that there will be meat served, the focus will definitely be on the vegan fare. In an ideal world, we would have the whole wedding be green, eco-friendly, vegan and all natural. As someone pointed out, however, it takes compromise to make a wedding (and marriage) last so we applaud her for at least making veganism a part of her special day."Before Chelsea Clinton went off to Stanford, Hillary asked the White House cooking staff to teach her daughter how to prepare delicious vegan meals. But this was more than just a weekend of 'helpful hints'. Chelsea spent an entire six weeks learning the craft and upon completion, she received a Walter Scheib Cooking School certificate."
Vegan, mostly vegan or not vegan at all? Weigh in on what you think!
