Teter is a vegetarian and has won a gold and silver Olympic medalist for snowboarding. In 2010, she is quoted in the Huffington Post stating: “I feel stronger than I’ve ever been, mentally, physically, and emotionally. My plant-based diet has opened up more doors to being an athlete. It’s a whole other level that I’m elevating to. I stopped eating animals about a year ago, and it’s a new life. I feel like a new person, a new athlete.”
I think Hannah sums it up beautifully! These are just some examples of world class athletes being fueled primarily by plants and there are many more out there shooting down the animal protein myth one medal at a time!
