  • Megan-R just posted Meet the Real-Life Vegan Spider-Man on the peta2 blog.12 months ago

    Let’s talk about free running.

    Free running is all about expressing yourself in an environment without any limitations on movement.

    Example: You want to get from point A to point B as fast as possible, but there’s a wall, a bench, and a set of stairs in your way. Do you go around those obstacles? Nope. You go through them—or rather over them—as awesomely as possible.

    Let’s now talk about Tim Shieff.

    Tim Shieff is a world champion professional English free runner. He has competed on American Ninja Warrior, has appeared in a Harry Potter film (the ultimate measure of success in my book), and is considered one of the most successful athletes in the world. Tim Shieff is also vegan.
    [peta-video youtube="9sJDmqE2dk4" ]
    When you have to push your body to the limit, it takes more than sheer willpower and determination. Being an athlete of this caliber means staying in peak physical condition and having all the protein and nutrients you need in order to get through your grueling workout sessions.

    Fueling yourself with a plant-based diet is the best thing that you can do for your body. Among the many benefits of eating vegan meals are:

    Lower cholesterol
    Reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease, and strokes
    Increased energy
    Getting to brag that some of the strongest people in the world are vegan

    This officially puts the protein myth to bed, right? I thought so. 😉

  • Megan-R just posted The Best Band Interview Probably Ever on the peta2 blog.1 year ago

    If somebody doesn’t understand, it’s their loss for being so close-minded of an individual that they can’t understand standing against the norm.

    The members of Los Angeles duo Youth Code are not creating the kind of beat-dropping, pop-filled electronic music that’s taken over the radio—and they don’t give a f*ck.
    youth code featured image
    Sara Taylor and Ryan William George got their start doing DIY basement shows, touring with and playing in hardcore bands, and they harnessed that unapologetic attitude and raw energy into a frenzied industrial sound.
    Keeping in spirit with the punk ethos, it’s only fitting that Sara and Ryan are devoted animal activists. We recently caught up with the pair to discuss Earth Crisis, the vegan hardcore community, and taking a stand against the horrific cruelty of factory farming. When it comes to facing your food, Sara makes one hell of a point: “If you can’t stomach it, why are you contributing to it?”

    [W]atching something die—if it affects you, you need to really sit and think about what you consume.

    [peta-video youtube="UhtPan889Zw" ]
    You can find Youth Code on tour this fall with Skinny Puppy and VNV Nation on the Alliance of Sound Tour. For more information on animal rights, order peta2’s Guide to Going Vegan!
