Plants Rule the World...
or at least my diet. Last weekend I had the opportunity to talk about my plant-based diet for sport to folks here in Belgium at an event held by Belgian's Vegetarian Society called Ethisch Vegetarisch Alternatief (EVA) who were excellent hosts! I was there as a pro athlete and spokesperson for In Defense of Animals (IDA.)
In addition to my excitement of getting to speak in front of a room full of Belgians for the first time, I got to meet fellow Organic Athlete member and journalist Jürgen Bruynooghe. I originally met him (through email) last year when he interviewed me for an article for EVA's magazine.
If you want to read all about it, check out Amy's blog. She was kind enough to report on it!
By the way, the photo was taken just before i got up to speak.
