Emma Watson has been vocal about her support for causes like sustainability, climate change awareness, and human rights. Many people who stand behind these causes are also vegan.
Emma Watson is not vegan. However, she does support animal alternative and vegan products in the fashion world. She has worn eco-friendly and sustainable fashion products on the runway. On top of this, she also took a yoga teacher training and meditation course where vegetarian meals are mandatory.
You can read more below about what foods Emma Watson eats, her support of sustainability in fashion, and yoga teacher training.
Emma Watson’s Favorite Eats
Emma Watson is a meat eater that is for certain. In an episode of Derek Does Stuff With a Friend, Emma Watson answered people’s questions at Grand Central Station in New York City via video chat. One fan asked her what her best hangover cure was and her response was “an English breakfast: sausages, baked beans.” Since vegans don’t eat meat, this hangover cure certainly means Watson is not vegan.
In an interview with Marie Claire magazine, Watson said that her go-to menu is “Mexican food. I make a really amazing egg tortilla in the morning. It’s my special thing. I make guacamole, salsa, and scrambled eggs, and then I cook the tortilla. It’s pretty simple, really, but yummy.” Another food that vegans do not eat would be eggs. By the way, that wrap sounds delicious!

Watson’s Support of Sustainability in Fashion
Although she is not vegan, Watson supports a lot of causes that vegans also support. One of the biggest ones would have to be sustainability in fashion. The fashion world is historically atrocious when it comes to human rights, animal rights, environmentally friendly products, and sustainability. That is why it has become essential for celebrity fashionistas, like Emma Watson, to support companies who do the right thing.
In fact, she got involved with a company called People Tree to design her own fashion line of sustainable and eco-friendly clothing that was also humane to people and animals. She even traveled to Bangladesh to tour the manufacturing facilities. The Harry Potter actress told The Guardian “I think young people like me are becoming increasingly aware of the humanitarian and environmental issues surrounding fast fashion and want to make good choices but there aren’t many options out there.”
Watson has also stated that she is a user and supporter of the app GoodOnYou which helps users find sustainable and ethical clothing brands. Through the app, she has found brands like Catbird, Simon Miller, and Allsisters. You can read about more sustainable brands Watson wears through this Harper’s Bazaar article.
Taking Yoga Teacher Training
As mentioned above, Yoga Teacher Training requires participants to follow what is known as a yogi diet. A yogi diet means not eating any meat, minimal amounts of dairy products, barely any egg, and no processed foods like sugar. It takes a great amount of discipline to follow the diet and way of life.
So when Emma Watson took her Yoga Teacher certification course, she would have had to eat like this. While it isn’t a vegan diet, it is extremely close. Watson was a known yogi for a long time before it was discovered she had become a certified teacher back in 2014.
Becoming a certified teacher can be done through weekend training courses over the span of a couple of months, or full blown immersive training usually at a retreat or centre over a few weeks.
So maybe Emma Watson isn’t a vegan, but she sure can get on board with vegan parallel causes. She’s also taking steps to ensure that she’s making a big impact to sway people to not make a big impact on the planet.
