How are your fitness goals coming?

Iceland Monitor wants the world to know that Hulda B. Waage has set a new Iceland record. The vegan powerlifter even surprised herself, deadlifting 205 kilos to take the title in a championship this past weekend.

That’s 451 pounds or 32 stones for the readers following along in the US and UK, or somewhere in the ballpark of 2,255 Field Roast Sausage Links (an easy vegan favourite). Yes, I did the math, and yes, I am equal parts hungry and motivated to work out.

Hulda’s message is a powerful one that needs to be repeated:

“You can be strong without eating meat and animal byproducts.”

The inspiring powerlifter and mum has given new meaning to #veganpower, and posts a motivating combination of colourful salads and in-the-gym videos to her Instagram feed. Hulda will now live alongside Torre and Patrik in our fandom, and all the other incredible athletes reminding their spectators that you don’t need to use animals to be strong.

France’s ban of faux-meat branding won’t stop veganism

I’ll take “mycoproteinous food tube” over a tube of dead pig any day.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
