Apart from daily exercises, Lily keeps her body fit and healthy by keeping track on her diet. She is noted to be a vegan. Now, here’s what she said during her interview with Glamour Magazine UK:
“I am an aspiring vegan, which means I have been trying to be but am not always as it isn’t always easy, and so I try and keep a balanced attitude when I can’t be. In my heart of hearts I know I want to be a vegan though, and am very happy when I manage to be. I am mostly concerned about factory farming of animals, and do not want to support or encourage that through using milk or eggs that comes from unknown sources. It’s not easy when traveling and I still have mixed feelings about eating honey or occasionally free range eggs.
