Pamela Anderson can now add chef to her already impressive resume. The 48-year-old activist and philanthropist has taken her love of food online to launch a meat-free website called The Sensual Vegan. The star revealed the news on Twitter on Monday, writing: “I’ve been working on a little sexy vegan cooking show from home.”

On the site, the former Baywatch star dishes out cooking tips with her friend Delahna Flagg. There are helpful videos as well as beautifully shot photos of some of the recipes they have concocted.
One such dish is a White/Red Bean Salad. With only five ingredients (and four more for the dressing), it would serve vegetarians and meat-eaters alike at a classic summer BBQ. Others include Lentil Bean Stew, Roasted Veggies and Quinoa Ginger/Fennel Salad. Expect to see these and other items in the cookbook Pamela is set to release in 2016.
It’s no surprise that the Canadian actress would tackle a cooking project like this new website. She’s always been vocal about her love of food as well as her dedication to veganism. Back in 2013, Pamela opened up to the Examiner about what was in her fridge. ““My refrigerator is full of kale and greens… I can’t imagine something greasy, or eating meat.”
She also told Healthy Living Magazine about her work with PETA and when she adopted a leafy green lifestyle.
“I never was a big meat eater. My dad hunted. We ate venison and moose meat. I didn’t have a taste for it. And I begged my father to stop hunting after I found a dead deer hanging upside down in the pump house with no head, dripping blood into a bucket. When I started working with PETA on ‘Baywatch,’ I became aware of the cruelty of slaughterhouses. And gave up meat. I also learned the environmental impact the meat industry has. I gave up dairy last. The cruelest of all the industries. Taking babies away…struck a chord with me as a woman. After I removed dairy I felt like a new person. Everything improved. My digestion, my skin, hair. It just doesn’t belong in our bodies.”
Pamela joins an already impressive roster of A-list stars who have launched their own lifestyle websites. Gwyneth Paltrow runs Goop, Blake Lively helms Preserve and Lauren Conrad assists with The Beauty Department.
