Every once in a while, a kooky celeb or an off-the-grid rockstar will have a vegan wedding. But a former first daughter? Or anyone, for that matter, associated with the White House? Not until now.
Buzz about Chelsea Clinton’s upcoming wedding — the rumored date is July 31 — is building, and the newest revelation to surface about this democratic darling’s upcoming nuptials is that she will be having a “green” wedding, including vegetarian and vegan (and gluten-free) food.
True, true…she’s also offering grass-fed beef to those guests who want it. But glass half-full, people! Glass. Half. Full.
Just a few years ago it would have been UNHEARD of for the daughter of a president (or the son of a president, or a cousin, heck even a niece or nephew…anyone with any type of presidential blood, ok?) to be associated with veganism. But the tofu’s out of the bag and Chelsea is a vegan, eating a totally plant-based diet. She’s also allergic to gluten. So yay for gluten-free people, too! Chelsea’s in your club.
Folks, vegan food is movin’ on up. And will be served at “the biggest wedding of the year”! When Bill (that’s right — Bill Clinton!) asks Chels if she wants another plate of mushroom paté, she’ll be saying, “I do”!
Congratulations to Chelsea and her fiancé. And for an entire community of vegans who just learned a presidential princess is on their team.
