Alfonso Ribeiro Admits he Could Never be Vegan

America’s Funniest Home Videos host, Alfonso Ribeiro is quite fine with his current diet selection. When his wife suggests to him that they should change their diet to a vegan one, he admits that will never happen. The actor states, “I could never be vegan.”

In a recent interview with Yahoo Life’s latest Deglazed food series, the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star admits his penchant for burgers and pizza. Especially pizza from New York. But, he also disclosed that his wife of 10 years, Angela Unkrich has tried to get the actor to eliminate meat from his diet.

“My wife is always saying to me, ‘We should try vegan,’ and I’m like ‘No, no we shouldn’t. You do your thing and I’ll have a steak or a burger.'”

Evidently, his love for his regular diet supersedes the benefits of switching to a vegan lifestyle devoid of meat and dairy.

“The two treats for me have always been burgers and pizza,” says the Dancing with the Stars host. “I am a huge New York pizza guy. I don’t do pizza everywhere. I’m also all about having a good burger — not your regular fast food burger, I’m talking about a real diner burger.”

He still loves the simplicity of a good burger but, he admits that he doesn’t eat them the proper way anymore. He now eats the burgers minus the buns.

“I’ll do a cheeseburger with cheddar cheese, I typically don’t do the buns now — I like them protein-style — but I’ll do a little bacon, a little avocado, and a little cheese. That’s it.”

Surprisingly, Ribiero isn’t much of a seafood eater, choosing to keep his munching on meat as opposed to what dwells in the ocean.

“I’m not big on the sea,” he states. “I’ll do a little bit of tuna, and maybe lobster every once in a while, but, honestly, if it came out of the ocean, there’s a big chance I’m not going to like it, so I don’t even try it.”
