Wearing green bodypaint – and little else – Rosanna Davison, daughter of Lady in Red singer Chris de Burgh, is attempting to spread the gospel of veganism.

Painted as what can only be some kind of sexy leprechaun lady while holding a sign that proclaims ‘Kiss Me. I’m Vegan!’, the certified nutritionist is spreading the word that one of the best ways to stay healthy, slim and energised is by going vegan.

“Vegan meals are packed with nutrients and free of unhealthy animal fat and cholesterol, so they’re a great way to keep your weight down and your energy up”, Davison says. “The best thing to do for your health and for animals is to go vegan – for St Patrick’s Day and every day!” 

PETA US’ website includes an array of ‘veganised’ recipes for St Paddy’s Day, including Irish classics such as shepherd’s pie, colcannon, brown bread and more.

In addition to being, on average, slimmer than meat-eaters are, vegans are less prone to cancer, heart disease, strokes and diabetes.

Sorry, Rosanna – we’re still going to have our bacon tomorrow morning. You make a lovely leprechaun, though.
