When country-singer Kellie Pickler needs help eating her veggies, she knows who to call: fellow American Idol star Carrie Underwood.
While Pickler was once a true red-meat-eating country girl, the singer has turned over a new leaf, People magazine reported.
For the past five months, the star has traded in her once beloved rare steaks for healthy fruits and vegetables, People said.
When decided to take the veggie plunge, she contacted Underwood for some moral support, who was skeptical, but soon threw her support behind her pal.
“She was like, ‘Wow, I’m so proud of you! You’re doing better than I thought,’” Pickler said. “So we have this little vegetarian thing going on. I’ll text her and be like, ‘Is fish considered a meat?’ And she’ll be like ‘Well, different people look at it differently.’”
Pickler told People that she initially based her decision on health reasons, but eventually learned how “horrible” animals were treated after watching a PETA Internet video.
