Vegan Athlete Talk

Still working on that post! Summer classes are no joke and move so quickly. I’ve also taken on an extra project giving a short talk about fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and having a station set up at a middle school health fair next week, so I have to prepare for that.

I really wanted to share this informative video with you by registered dietitian and vegan athlete Matt Ruscigno on athletes and plant-based nutrition. Lots of people have questions about getting enough protein, getting the right ratio of carbs-fat-protein, and getting in enough calories as an athlete trying to eat vegan.  Matt does an excellent job going over these things and more.

  1. Great Post! Good luck with everything! I know you’re gonna do great!!!!

  2. That’s so great that you’ll be doing that at a middle school. I cannot believe how horribly I ate as a kid, pre-teen and teenager. So glad you’ll be sharing veg-goodness with the youngins. ; )

    I’m bookmarking this video to watch when I have time. Thanks for sharing!

    • Unfortunately the middle school talk fell through, but I’m sure there will be other opportunities. I don’t know how well I would’ve received a health talk at that age. I was a vegetarian, but one who subsisted mainly on bread, cheese, and sugar, with the odd bunch of broccoli. For shame, haha :)
