Famed Charlie Sheen "goddess" Rachel Oberlin snagged a halo from PETA for her cruelty-free vegan diet. Now PETA's first "Green Goddess" is talking Tofurky with OK! magazine about why she loves being vegan.
"Animal byproducts are so bad for our bodies, and I feel as though my body is now pure and clean. I have so much energy and life now," she told the magazine. "I also feel great knowing I don't contribute to any deaths of any innocent creatures."
The average vegan saves more than 100 animals' lives every year—not to mention saving themselves from obesity, cancer, strokes, and heart disease. And if Rachel's "Green Goddess" figure is any indication, the benefits don't stop there. Join Rachel in being a "goddess" for animals. Get yummy vegan recipes sent right to your in-box every week, or peruse some tasty cruelty-free cookbooks.

As a blonde myself, I always felt a twinge of sympathy for Jessica Simpson as the dumb-blonde jokes flew. But even her snarkiest critics have to give credit where credit is due: Jessica just tweeted about her first taste of tofu and called it "yummy."
With so many fab cookbooks (and condiments) out there to help spice up your foray into vegan cooking, there's no reason not to give tofu a try.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
