Faunalytics x Farm Sanctuary

A new study from Faunalytics suggests that people who interact with farm animals at sanctuaries are more likely to consume fewer animal products.

Farm Sanctuary, America’s premier farm animal sanctuary and advocacy organization, joined Faunalytics to release the study, which showed that 70% of non-vegans who went on a tour through Farm Sanctuary said they would make dietary changes to reduce consumption of animal products. Comparatively, only 53% said they would change their diets prior to taking the tour.

Farm Sanctuary followed up with participants in the survey two months later, and non-vegans reported eating less chicken, turkey, beef, pork, fish, shellfish, eggs and dairy, with many correspondents crediting the tour for that change.

Tourists didn’t only make active lifestyle changes. They also changed opinions. While 52% of participants said humans contribute to farm animal suffering before the tour, that number went up to 69% after the tour.

78% of omnivores said they were willing to cook vegetarian or vegan meals, which is up 12% from the 66% who were willing before the tour. 48% also said they were willing to discuss veganism and vegetarianism with others, but 73% said they’d had conversations with others about the subject at the time of the two month check-in.

The study took place at Farm Sanctuary locations in New York and California with over 1,200 subjects, and Farm Sanctuary hopes to continue progress by showing that tours can be both fun and effective.

Tom Beggs, a Faunalytics research scientist and the lead author of the study, said the public is becoming more aware of the way animals are treated in the food system, and a global shift is happening.

“The results from our study confirm something that most farm animal sanctuaries are already aware of: having meaningful interactions with farmed animals encourages people to empathize with them, and more importantly, to consider them as sentient individuals and not food,” Beggs said.

The study also shows that it’s important to find a balance between light-hearted and educational when sending a message about animal cruelty. The best way to spread the word is to make it easy to take immediate action by doing things like providing recipes, selling plant-based ingredients and foods and offering opportunities to get more involved in the cause.

Megan Watkins, CEO of Farm Sanctuary, said industrial agriculture is a major threat to our current world.

“The critical role that farm sanctuaries play in modeling a compassionate relationship with animals and inspiring positive lifestyle change cannot be overstated,” Watkins said. “Whether you visit in-person or virtually, the best way to glimpse the future is to visit a farm sanctuary.”

Tips To Get Wedding Ready

By Beachbody Super Trainer and creator of Ultimate Portion Fix, Autumn Calabrese

When deciding on a nutrition program to follow to slim down for your wedding there are a few key things to keep in mind. The first being how much time you have till the big day and how much time you have till your final dress fitting. Once you’ve had that final dress fitting its ideal to maintain your weight so that your dress fits on the big day!

Following the Foundational Fix plan of Ultimate Portion Fix is a great way to get wedding ready.

  • Start by eliminating highly processed foods from your diet, this includes, sodas, sugary coffee drinks, cakes, candy, and any other foods you might be consuming that contain excessive amounts of sugar (anything over 8 grams per serving is high). If it has a laundry list of ingredients you can’t pronounce its go to go.
  • Stick to whole foods, things like, fruit, vegetables, lean proteins (chicken, fish, turkey, tofu, tempeh, occasional red meat) and healthy carbohydrates like brown rice, quinoa, beans, potatoes, lentils and oats.
  • Watch your portion sizes. You can overeat on healthy food as well.  You don’t need as much as we tend consume to fuel your body. Ultimate Portion Fix shows you exactly how to portion out the foods that you love with its color coded, portion control containers.  
  • Balance your macronutrients. Again this is something Ultimate Portion Fix does for you.  No counting calories, carbs, protein or anything else. Fill your containers and enjoy your food knowing that you’re getting a perfectly portioned, balanced meal every time.
  • Make water your new best friend. Water is so important to the function of your body so stay hydrated, it also helps flush toxins out of your system. Make drinking half your body weight in oz of water a day your number 1 priority.
  • Practice self care. Planning a wedding can be stressful, that stress can start to take a toll on your waistline if you’re not careful. So find ways to relax like taking an epsom salt bath, getting in a good sweat session, journaling, and most importantly getting enough sleep at night.

In addition to implementing Ultimate Portion Fix and these 6 tips, load your diet with foods that support a healthy weight.  

  • Apples not only provide a healthy, natural sweetness to your diet they are loaded with fiber to help you feel fuller for a longer period of time.
  • Avocados have a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid which provides a slow burning energy source for the body.  Its been shown to fire up the metabolism and healthy fats help you feel satiated.
  • Beans are a great source of healthy carbohydrates.The are loaded with fiber and it takes our bodies a long time to digest. This again means you will feel full longer.
  • Eggs are a great source of protein. I know they’ve gotten a bad wrap in the past but they are low in calories and high in protein. Increasing protein in ones diet has been shown as a effective form of weight loss.
  • Chia Seeds try adding these little guys to a salad or smoothie. Chia seeds have been shown to help with endurance, energy and decreasing hunger. They are also high in omega – 3 fatty acids ( a good fat that we need) and protein.  

Looking your best on your special day is a big deal and can stress a lot of people out. Take the stress away, follow a program that isn’t a diet, doesn’t leave you starving or feeling deprived, has been proven to work long term for hundreds of thousands of people.  If you want a program that is effective and will have you feeling like your best self on your big day check out Ultimate Portion Fix.

MILEY CYRUS × EASTER

Forget the Painted Eggs: This Is How Miley Cyrus Does Easter

You can always count on Miley Cyrus to do things her way—even when it comes to Easter. While the rest of us will be busy breaking out the Paas egg kits or stockpiling Cadbury chocolates, the pop star has something glitzier planned. “[I’m] going to a drag show . . . duh!” Cyrus told us via e-mail from Los Angeles. But enjoying a drag revue isn’t the only thing Cyrus has in store for the weekend. By celebrating the event with a special series of images by photographer Vijat Mohindra, she is continuing a tradition begun earlier this year in which every holiday is marked by a new photographic statement, a kind of social media calendar. “It started with Valentine’s Day on a shoot with Ellen von Unwerth, went into St. Paddy’s Day partying with some friends, and now it’s Easter,” said Cyrus. “I’m excited that Vogue wants to get involved and celebrate with me!”

With shots of Cyrus posing in pastels, holding glittery carrots, and, yes, getting spanked by the Easter Bunny, the end result is a tongue-in-cheek exploration of a holiday that can skew formal. Playful with a pinup vibe and dreamy colors, the shoot aligns perfectly with Cyrus’s personal look. That makes sense considering she styled it herself with help from designer Bradley Kenneth McPeek, whose innovative eyewear features within. For Cyrus, who has undergone multiple fashion evolutions during her time in the spotlight, sartorial experimentation comes with the territory. “If everything is cute . . . it works together, so pile it on and wear all your favorites at once! No such thang as too much!” she said. With the Met Gala on her schedule, there’s a chance that she’ll apply that same philosophy to her ensemble, but for the moment, Cyrus is most excited about attending the event with Stella McCartney, a designer whose commitment to animal welfare matches her own. “I am vegan and I live a vegan lifestyle. I am animal-product free and honored to represent a sustainable brand,” she proclaimed.

Though the carefree calendar is almost certain to delight fans, whimsical photo shoots only represent one side of what Cyrus has been up to lately. She was among the performers on hand in Washington, D.C., for the student-led anti-gun demonstration March for Our Lives, where she delivered a stirring performance of “The Climb.” “I was so inspired by the youth of [Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School] and proud to be a part of such an incredible moment/movement,” said Cyrus, who considers the day one she’ll never forget. “It was amazing to watch these young people speak and perform. Hopefully, we will begin to see the change and watch these incredible students have an enormous impact on the government and gun laws.” Cyrus said she will continue to support the causes she believes in, including through her nonprofit, the Happy Hippie Foundation. “I’ve got a microphone,” she said, “and I’m not afraid to use it!”

HIP HOP + HEALTH

SMART RHYMES

VeganSmart uses music to entertain and educate on benefits of a Vegan lifestyle

In the Hip-Hop industry “beefs” among industry heavy weights are quite common and usually addressed in the studio with a diss track. The brand that has successfully built a bridge between hip-hop and health, VeganSmart, is addressing their “beef” with…well…beef and other factors that lead to diet related illness such as diabetes, hyper tension and heart disease with in a new track titled “Wise Words.”

The single features John Lewis, better known as The Bad Ass Vegan, who drops his dope rhymes, combined with his knowledge, on living a plant-based lifestyle. Lyrics such as “No, it’s not your fault/there’s education out that nobody taught from the time you were born. They got you ready for GMO pork, as a kid when they introduced you to a spork. Man, they’ll put anything together because they know you’ll eat anything they tell ya,” are used not to shame or judge, but encourage people to pay attention to what they are putting in their bodies. Hip-Hop influencers Styles P, DJ Envy, Angela Yee, Lil Cease and even Moby make appearances in the video that accompanies the track.

VeganSmart is focused on addressing nutrition-related chronic diseases in underserved communities through education and by offering plant-based solutions to satisfy hunger and improve overall health. Their efforts to spread this message have been successful thanks to a partnership with rapper Styles P and his chain of Juices for Life juice bars. The team has also garnered support in bringing health education to underserved communities from Kappa Alpha Psi® Fraternity Inc.

“Wise Words” is available for purchase on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music.

Claude Tellis and Kareem Cook, VeganSmart co-founders and college friends, have always sought to educate and provide consumers with healthy food choices that would prevent them from diet related illness and poor health. They were responsible for having the state of California ban junk food from vending machines in every Los Angeles public high school and middle school. While banning junk foods in schools across LA is a tremendous accomplishment the men were unsatisfied. They wanted a larger platform to help Americans prevent common illnesses that plague the United States. Both Kareem and Claude’s families and many Americans across the country suffer from hypertension and diabetes, diseases that can be prevented or managed primarily based on diet. This passion lead them to launch of VeganSmart, a line of all-in-one, nutritional shakes. Co-developed with Health and Wellness Expert and Partner, John Lewis, the brand continues to motivate other health and wellness advocates.

With no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, preservatives, dairy, eggs, gluten or soy, VeganSmart shakes go beyond classic flavors like chocolate and vanilla, with delicious varieties including Wild Berries, Chai, and their newest line, Love is Love that includes flavors like Cookies N’ Cream and Chocolate Raspberry.
