Chrissy Teigen professes her love for decadent dishes and comforting cuisine in her recently released first cookbook Cravings. From cheesy tuna melts to fried chicken wings, the Sports Illustrated model loves a wide range of food. So when she decided to give up her favourite eats and embrace a vegan diet, the 30-year-old star quickly realized she bit off more than she could chew.

"I have been vegan for 12 hours and I've said it 14 times today," tweeted the star, who shared her food journey with her more than 1.5 million followers. Dubbing herself "Chrissy Vegan" the mother of one poked fun at her inability to follow a vegan diet, telling one fan she accidentally forgot about her newfound eating habits and admitted "I ate 2 slices of Velveeta [cheese] at 1:30am."
Just 12 hours after kicking off her diet, the Lip Sync Battle star was back to eating meat. "And now it is time for rib eye Wednesdays. don't question my veganism," she wrote shortly before posting a picture of her meaty meal.
She later joked that she has a new cookbook out now entitled The 12 Hour Vegan.
One thing that Chrissy loves more than food is her adorable six-week-old daughter Luna. Since her daughter's arrival on Apr. 17, the proud mother has been sharing pictures and videos of her little angel on social media. Her most recent post shows Luna grooving along to the sounds of her dad John Legend's music. Chrissy captioned the precious moment with, "The beginning!"
