Sexy Vegetarians

June 20, 2008

In the ‘70s, vegetarian and vegan ways of eating were considered a hippie phenomenon, something on the fringe. But times have changed and the stigma around vegetarianism has lifted. The vegetarian lifestyle has hit the mainstream news because more and more celebrities are eating this way.

It’s is even considered sexy. PETA just released a poll ranking the sexiest vegetarian celebrities. Check out the article in usmagazine.org, featuring the sexiest vegetarian rock stars, pop stars and actors. Who would have thought 30 years ago that we would be using sexy and vegetarian in the same sentence?

The poll voted musicians Leona Lewis and Red Hot Chili Pepper Anthony Kiedis as the sexiest vegetarian celebrities. Other female vegetarian celebrities that were on the poll include Alicia Silverstone, Carrie Underwood, Alyssa Milano and Shania Twain. The vegetarian male celebs included were Joaquin Phoenix, Milo Ventimiglia, Paul McCartney and Rupert Everett.

It’s exciting to see people in the public eye voice their opinions on health, environmental issues and holistic wellness. When celebrities start talking about vegetarianism and health issues openly, we know that the whole country and the world are starting to think about them too. It’s inevitable that their awareness creates a ripple effect.
