Former 106 and Park host Rocsi Diaz teamed up with Peta to promote the benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle. In the ad she rocks a bikini made out of Brussels sprouts with a small piece of a wreath added for extra holiday flavor. Check her out:
She also did an interview for the campaign explaining how and why she went vegetarian.
“I physically felt cleaner and lighter,” she mentioned as one of her personal perks. “Later on, literally I saw somebody eating a chicken wing, and it grossed me out. … My body was, like, ‘No more. I don’t want it anymore.’”
Watch the full interview:
I’ve been a yo yo vegetarian all my life since age 2 (a saga where I battle yo yo eating in general that I will one day share). I even dabbled with raw food veganism (this was an amazing phase, another story I will one day share). I believe more in the theory that people have diverse and individual dietary needs based on blood type. My experience, since before I began researching various diets and stumbled across blood type eating, has shown me that I’m much better as a vegetarian (I’m blood type A and according to that fact veggies should be my gospel). However, even rampant meat eaters should probably cut their meat consumption tremendously and give the veggies a chance, even if vegetarian for a day. When done correctly, the vegetarian lifestyle has tremendous benefits.
