Steaks are high for hottest vegan

Thursday, 9th August, 2018 9:17am

What does Cork city woman Elisa Duarte Farias have in common with Jessica Chastain, Natalie Portman, and Ariana Grande? They're all sizzling, sexy vegans, according to PETA!

The 29 year old Brazilian beauty beat out numerous other entrants to become one of eight female finalists in PETA's UK and Ireland's Hottest Vegan Competition 2018.

Dietitian Farias' life changed in 2012 when she met a vegetarian for the first time. She realised that as an animal lover, she needed to stop eating meat, and she ultimately chose to adopt a vegan lifestyle.

She said: “I was so unhappy before going vegan, and I believe it's because deep down I knew it wasn't right to eat animals.”

PETA Director Elisa Allen said: “There's nothing sexier than someone who is committed to helping animals and the environment, and it doesn't hurt that vegans are, on average, healthier and more energetic than their meat-eating peers. Each one of the finalists in PETA's contest is a living example of the strength and vitality that can come from vegan eating.”

The two winners of the annual contest will each receive a trip for two on the luxury five-night Christmas Markets cruise on Germany and Switzerland's Rhine and Moselle rivers, courtesy of Vegan Travel. This year's winners will be chosen based on several factors, including vote count, and will be announced by 13 August.
