The actress is well-known for her animal rights activism and vegan diet. She told Women's Health that a typical morning meal is steel-cut oatmeal with soy milk, or a tofu scramble with salsa and avocado.

Bill Clinton

The former president is one of veganism's biggest success stories. He cut out meat and dairy in 2010 and dropped 30 pounds in the process. A recent AARP profile revealed that he is less strict with his vegan diet now, allowing himself organic salmon or omega-3-fortified eggs from time to time, "to maintain iron, zinc and muscle mass." But he still eats the same vegan breakfast nearly every day: a smoothie made with almond milk, fresh berries, dairy-free protein powder and ice.

Ellen DeGeneres
