The Queen guitarist and songwriter says he ‘remained loose about being completely plant-based for most of last year’ after suffering a heart attack.

Brian May is extremely pleased with Nestlé launching a vegan version of its iconic KitKat chocolate bar.

The Swiss conglomerate debuted its highly anticipated dairy-free chocolate bar in the UK earlier this week.

Calling it a ‘breakthrough’, the Queen star told his 2.8 million Instagram followers: “I’m just praying that the Vegan Kit Kat will magically taste like DARK Kit Kat, and not like a milky one. [I] don’t like milky chocolate. 

“If this is the case, it will hopefully edge me further in the direction of being a proper vegan, rather than just vegan-ish. If not, it’s back to those guilty feelings.”

Back to being vegan ‘in a gradual and sustainable way’

The celebrity musician, who recently suffered a heart attack also asked his fans for recommendations in his ‘quest for a vegan diet’.

May wrote: “What else is helpful… Beyond Burgers, incredible, especially with lashings of fried onions, vegan mayonnaise, and ketchup. And “That’s not Bacon“ – which adds a very tasty colour to breakfast time.

“And … Chia Pudding – home-made with almond milk. Very refreshing, loaded with the right amino-acids and entirely innocent.”

He shared that while he was eating a 100 % vegan diet, doctors have now advised him to “eat eggs and some fish to restore my protein levels”, as he recuperates and gets back to being healthy again.

“I remained loose about being completely plant-based for most of last year,” the 73-year-old admitted.

“But now I have the will to come back and complete the circle. But this time approaching it in a gradual and sustainable way.”

‘Every step of eating less animal-derived food helps’

The star, who often uses his platform to speak out about animal-rights, went plant-based in 2019 after participating in Veganuary – the world’s biggest 31-day pledge to adopt a vegan lifestyle.

Encouraging his followers to eat less meat since every step counts, May added: “It’s actually unhelpful to be too harshly judgmental on yourself – or on other people – because every step in the direction of eating less animal-derived food helps animal welfare, Planet Earth, and your health.”
