Whether motivated by ethics and/or goals ranging from improved general fitness, endurance, muscle building and strength training, to quicker recovery and reduced inflammation, there are so many reasons athletes are making the switch to being fuelled by plants.

An increasing number of elite athletes have excelled in their field of sport, citing a plant-based diet as playing an important role in their successes.

However, you can also reap these benefits in your own life, regardless of ability or fitness level. You’ll be helping the planet, improving your health and most importantly, saving the lives of countless animals.

Our Vegan Easy website now has an entire section devoted to health and fitness.
