Brian May has kicked off the new year with a pledge not to eat any animal-based foods this month, signing on to the growing Veganuary campaign.
The Queen guitarist took to Instagram to explain his reasoning, revealing that it's for his health, the planet, and to lessen the suffering of animals.
As for what he plans to do when the calendar flips over to February, May says he will then decide whether or not to continue with the new diet.
May later posted that the first day "went OK," giving a shout out to his local Chinese restaurant for aiding in his efforts this month.
