Ellie Goulding has been recognised for one of the UK’s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2015 by animal rights organization, People of the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) because Ellie is vegetarian and publicly speaking about her meat-free diet and benefits of it.

Ellie has been posting and often speaking out about her vegetarian lifestyle, saying that since she’d given up meat, she’s noticed her skin is different, how her eyes are brighter and her hair healthier. She feels much better physically and credits the new eating habit as the one way she can stay fit and honour performance commitments in the time where many of fellow performers back out from doing a show due to their illness.

Previously, Leona Lewis was named one of PETA’s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrities. This award is meant to recognise those in the spotlight who support the rights of animals and the benefits of a meat-free diet. PETA also states that this meatless way also helps spare many animal lives a year, and that vegans and vegetarians are less likely to suffer from cancer, obesity and diabetes.
