I am a plant based athlete. What does that mean? Well, I fuel all my training, racing and adventures on whole grains, fruit, veges, legumes, nuts and seeds. No meat and dairy products, or eggs. I do this for long term health first and foremost and performance second. I believe all animals should be loved and respected, not abused and eaten. I respect all peoples individual right to choice and this is mine.
I am passionate about all things health!
I believe plants have the power to heal and prevent nearly ALL Western disease. They help you recover quicker, feel better than you ever have before and perform to a level you never thought possible. Plants are medicine, premium fuel and the substance we are meant to eat.
As I think everyone does, I struggle to eat as healthy as I would like and I am on a constant quest to always improve what I put in my mouth. Life is a journey, as is our health and I strive to make the path as beautiful as I can.
I band together with my plant based brothers and sisters in aiming to make new friends, friends, work colleagues, strangers and the planet better through a simple thing as what we eat. It is simple friends, EAT MORE PLANTS! WIN!
