Veggies Rise to the Occasion!
Vegetarians are sexier than meat eaters! One gem amongst
many from the Incredible Veggie Roadshow, which
starts its tour of Britain this October, fronted by a very fruity
lady. Organisers are the animal welfare group, Viva!, who
claim the Roadshow contains ‘Everything you ever wanted to
know about going, being or staying veggie – or moving in
Impotence due to clogged arteries from animal fat (and lack of
essential nutrients from plants), bad breath, obesity and excess
weight and premature baldness are some of the delights that meat-eating
men can look forward to. So it’s not hard to see why
they face stiff competition from veggies in the love arena! But
the good news is, carnivores who cut out meat can clear their arteries
and will soon be feeling themselves again.
As for fruity Mamas, dropping animal products from their diet
keeps them lean, luscious and lovely as veggies are slimmer and
more energetic! Ditching dairy can have a positive effect
on fertility in women and menopausal women are much more likely
to remain randy by switching to a veggie diet. Vegetarian
diets are also throbbing with natural aphrodisiacs to make hearts
glow and other bits tingle – such as asparagus, almonds,
avocado, bananas and some deliciously decadent dark chocolate. No
wonder health food shops across Britain are selling out of pumpkin
seeds, as this little green, zinc-laden marvel is known to improve
The first Roadshow takes place in Viva!’s
