Heather Mills is to give a talk on vegan cooking. Heather, the estranged wife of Sir Paul McCartney, is set to share her meat and dairy-free cooking tips in a presentation entitled 'Converting Carnivores' at London's The Incredible Veggie Show on June 30. A source told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "Heather is on the front cover of a leaflet that has been sent out. Her event is described as 'easy vegan cooking that leaves even the meatiest appetite begging for more', and will integrate a tales called 'Why I'm A Vegan'."
The move is reminiscent of Sir Paul's first wife Linda, who was a keen promoter of vegetarianism and had her own range of cook books and meat-free products before her death from cancer in 1998. Heather, who is still embroiled in a divorce battle with Sir Paul, recently announced she had become a vegan.
The 33-year-old former model said: "I'm a vegan now - a healthy diet which saves animals, something very important to me as I detest cruelty. "Following a plant-based diet not only benefits your health massively but also makes a huge difference to the planet, to animals and to feeding the world. My hope is to continue to put the message out there."
Vegans do not eat meat, fish or any dairy products and also refuse to use any products or clothing made from animals.
