Famous Vegan Athletes

By on June 12, 2014

Vegan is such a misunderstood lifestyle, we’re often thought of as skinny little hippy weaklings. That could not be further from the truth. Since turning vegan over a year ago I have never felt better. However I do get tired of being asked what I eat and where do I get my protein from. When you explain that  protein comes from so much more than red meat and chicken you often get a chuckle from the misinformed person asking. Don’t believe me? Here is a list of some famous vegan athletes who just cannot be mistaken for weaklings
