Fish Are Friends, Not Food: Jade Novah’s Journey to Veganism
Jade Novah is no stranger to the stage. The singer, actor, and self-proclaimed “super vegan” has been performing since she was a child. But it wasn’t until recently that Novah decided to use her platform to speak out about the issues that matter most to her – like animal rights.
Jade first became popular for her spot-on impressions of singers such as Rihanna and Beyoncé, but her music started gaining a new audience when she released her first debut album, “All Blue.” The album’s success led to Jade touring the world and performing for sold-out crowds.
It was during her time on tour that Jade began to learn more about the animal agriculture industry and the devastating impact it has on our planet. She also realized that she could no longer in good conscience participate in an industry that relies on the exploitation of animals.
So, Jade decided to go vegan. She switched to a vegan lifestyle several years ago and has never looked back. For her, it was a no-brainer. “I realized that I didn’t want to contribute to the needless suffering of animals,” she says. “And once I learned about the many other benefits of veganism – like improved mental clarity, abs for days, and savings on groceries – I was all in!”
In her fun video for PETA, Jade showed off her dance moves and chowed down on some delicious fish-free treats while dishing out all the reasons to go vegan. She also shares that going vegan helped her and her husband lose weight and improve their health. “Abs are made in the kitchen!”
Every year, billions of fish are killed for food. These smart, social animals have their own unique personalities and feel pain just like we do. But they’re often seen as nothing more than food by the fishing industry.
Jade uses her platform to change that perception and help others see fish as friends, not food. “I hope my video encourages people to give vegan eating a try,” she says. “It’s easier than ever before, and it’s a great way to show some compassion for animals.”
Since going vegan, Novah has been on a mission to spread the word about the benefits of plant-based living. She’s even written a book about her journey; entitled Fish Are Friends, Not Food: Jade Novah’s Journey to Veganism.
In it, Novah shares her personal story, tips, and advice for those considering making the switch to a vegan lifestyle. “I want people to know that it’s not as difficult as it may seem,” she says. “With a little bit of planning and effort, anyone can do it!”
