PETA has done an exceptional job at getting the message out about going Vegan and it seems to have definitely caught on.
They have made Veganism entirely sexy with catchy phrases like ‘respect chicks’ and ‘be a bunny’s honey’ and we thought we would delve a bit deeper to see what we could find out.
PETA are not short of stars across the world, models, actors, celebrities are all getting behind the vegan movement and selling the message that Vegetarianism will grow on you.
The great news is that if this is something that you are interested in or considering following, PETA has a lot of great information including a downloadable PDF file for a 2-week vegan eating plan.
PETA stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They offer a 2-week starter kit for those that are vegan-curious and it gives you a guide to good nutrition.
It’s about protein, fish free Omega 3’s, building strong bones and making ethical choices. Vegans enjoy a diet free of animal origins.
According to PETA you can save around 100 Animals a year by making the swap to Veganism. That’s a huge amount of animals.
They have also prepared an Infographic that outlines what they say is the truth about eating animals and we hope you will take some time to view it. The information is compelling.
