Feeling the benefit of not eating meat, she admitted to have also urged her three little children to follow in her footstep, becoming vegetarian.
Giving up her passion for fur and meat, Shanna Moakler admits in a new video testimonial for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) that she is taking the real advantage of becoming a vegetarian. The clip is part of the animal rights organization's vegetarian testimonials that star a growing list of notable celebrities, including Paul McCartney and Joss Stone just to name a few.
Giving credit to her meatless diet to have contributed to her radiant look, Shanna doesn't hesitate to introduce her children; Landon, Atiana, and Alabama, to the healthy procedure. "There are so many good reasons not to eat meat, but for me, the well-being of my children is the most important," the actress-model said in a statement.
"I want them to be healthy and also to understand that when they say 'No!' to meat, they're saying 'No!' to animal cruelty," she explained further. "We talk about our pets, and I say, 'You wouldn't eat Biscuit, would you? Well, then let's not eat any animal, O.K.?'"
Also gaining health benefit by becoming a vegetarian, Shanna revealed, "I don't think I really realized what I was putting into my body and the actual effects that it was having on me, so now I feel so much healthier, and I have so much more energy, and foods taste better!" Her television ad campaign for PETA's vegetarian testimonials, which will begin airing next week, can be seen on the organization's official website.
In addition to all, Shanna also makes promise to donate the fur coats she has won in various beauty pageants to PETA to be used in its campaign, aimed to educate people about the cruelty of the fur industry.
