“I’m a vegan.
I don’t like animals.
I know animals can be very, very intelligent.
I’m not an animal rights activist.”
The man behind the can of can’t stop eat food app Can’t Stop Eating is now back to tweeting about the food that’s made him feel good.
The founder of the app, and vegan activist, recently told the BBC that he felt he could no longer eat meat, eggs and dairy products because of the impact that animal welfare groups have on the food industry.
“The food industry, and I mean, the food we consume is what we’ve created,” he said.
“If you’re going to be an activist and advocate for animal rights, it’s not just about being a vegan, it has to be about being an activist for the health of the planet.”
I’ve got a few ideas for new vegan recipes and I’m really excited about them, he added.
“I’ve tried to take a bit of a vegan approach to the food I eat.
I think that’s the way to go.”
Can’t Stop Eater’s original app, which he co-founded with his partner in 2013, has been downloaded more than 3.4 million times.
A series of videos, podcasts and books have been released by the app since then.
