Genelia Deshmukh, who bid adieu to films after she entered wedlock with Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh some years ago, has shared a photo of purple cabbage soup made at their home, and also revealed reasons for turning vegetarian.
“Turning vegetarian was a choice I took a couple of years ago.. I honestly thought it was going to be really really tough but I was determined to make it work..” said the ‘Santhosh Subramanyam’ and ‘Velayudham’ actress.
She said further: “On my journey I realised the beauty of plants, the various colours I see through them and eventually the nutrients I get through them but most importantly I feel less cruel to animals.”
Genelia, who said her mother-in-law grew some organic cabbages, added: “We have been enjoying it raw through salads practically everyday but today decided to make a soup out of it.. I’ve heard of artificial colours being used in food to enhance colours and have been ever so against them but here I had got to see a pure beautiful purple colour, a colour I never thought I would get so effortlessly and to top it all it was super duper healthy (literally farm to table.)”
She also said: “Not just me, the kids believed it was a unicorn colour they had got and had their soup as well…”
