Carrie Underwood: A Vegetarian That Cans Meat
Carrie Underwood may be a woman who does not eat meat, and a few years ago, she even became “95 percent vegan.” (She says she only eats eggs now and then.) But that didn’t stop her from canning meat. She told us in an interview a few years ago what inspired her to become a vegan. She said, “I actually saw somebody that I work with, and she looked amazing. Like something happened in her life, there was some switch flipped, and something was up. Her skin was glowing. Her eyes were gorgeous, and her body was amazing. Something had happened.”
She added, “So I was like, ‘I’m gonna do this too.'”
Underwood loves to post what she is growing in her garden at her home near Nashville as well as what she is canning, and to our surprise, Carrie posted several canned jars of meat products that she just completed canning on her Insta Stories. She wrote over the image of the jars of meat, “Pressure canned meat for the first time. It turned out great! Now we’re always ready when the boys want tacos.”
Last week, Underwood was hard at work in her Nashville area garden and posted some images of her latest crops on her Insta Stories.
Carrie’s Insta post is a bit spicy as she took photos of peppers she’s been growing and shared with fans what she did with them. In the first image, she held two Jalapeños and wrote, “Garden Jalapeños.”
The second image was a big bowl of what she added to the mix to make salsa. She wrote over the photo, “Added some garden corn to use it up.” Her third photo was of her hand holding an alcoholic beverage. She wrote over the image, “Got me in the mood for a spicy skinny marg!
In the final photo, she captured her final canned product with two jars of her creation, along with a book titled Beginner’s Guide To Canning. She wrote, “Fishied product… easy peasy! How’d I do?'”
