The Untold History of Vegan Athletes
By Conor Heffernan

From Indian wrestlers to Olympic gold medalists.

A common, and somewhat lazy, accusation against vegan diets is that they don’t provide the requisite protein and calories needed to excel in sports or in the gym. Showing athletes, strongmen and bodybuilders thriving on the vegan lifestyle, Game Changers forced coaches and trainees to seriously consider their diets.

What confused me about Game Changers was not its scientific claims, but the general public’s reaction. For the most part, people seemed perplexed at the claim that athletes and lifters could be vegan.

But this is not a particularly new idea. Far from novel, Game Changers represents the latest in a series of efforts over the last 150 years to prove the benefits of plant-based in modern times, or in the past, vegetarian diets, for strength seekers. Read more

A Plant Based Journey To Health Recovery
By Sheanne Moskaluk

My name is Sheanne Moskaluk.  I live in Naramata, British Columbia, Canada, and, along with my husband Dan, we have experienced changes in our lives that we never would have believed possible.   We started by changing our minds and the rest followed.

In 2010, my 14 year old son became interested in weight lifting and body building.  He joined a local gym, where he was told he would never put on muscle if he did not consume protein powders and lots of meat.  So, being what I thought was a good mother, off to the local health food store I went.  What happened next would drastically change our lives. As I was browsing the selection of whey protein, a sales clerk inquired “was I buying this for myself?”  I explained it was for my son, to which she quickly replied “you need to do some research before giving that to your kids”.

Her family became part of the original BRCA1 and BRCA2 breast cancer gene studies. Figuring out how to beat her genes and continue remaining the only adult female in her family without cancer became the investigative reporting job of her life. At the age of 28, she almost died of a colon blockage and saved herself from a hysterectomy by going on a vegan diet.  (Watch her powerful Video below on how “your family genes don’t determine your destiny.”)

The Audible Kitchen Valentine’s Day: Karin’s Incredible Chocolate Pie (from PETA)

Karin’s Incredible Chocolate Pie (from PETA) Recipe:
▪ 25 vegan sandwich cookies (I use Newman O’s, chocolate cookie/vanilla cream flavour)                                                                                    
▪ 1/2 cup melted margarine
▪ 1 1/4 pounds soft tofu
▪ 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Break up the cookies and place in food processor. Grind them into crumbs. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the melted margarine. Stir until all the crumbs are moistened.

Press the cookie mixture into a pie pan and refrigerate for a half hour.

Place the drained tofu in food processor (after you’ve cleaned out all the crumbs!) Blend the tofu until it’s smooth and creamy.

Melt the chocolate chips. I use a glass bowl and melt them in the microwave stirring them every 10 seconds. Be careful as it’s easy to burn chocolate. They can also be melted in a double boiler. Add the melted chocolate to the tofu and blend until mixed.

Pour the mixture into the pie crust and chill for at least 2 hours.

Yum!
