Quote of the Day: John Salley on Veganism

“This is how you take care of your body.”

– John Salley on veganism, in a recent interview.

Salley goes on to discuss the success of athletes who have adopted plant based diets,  and credits their success to their food choices. These athletes include Serena and Venus Williams, who are thriving on a raw/plant-based diet.

Anyway, I love this quote – note that it is in stark contrast to another Quote of the Day I posted, also regarding attitudes of veganism in sports…

Yeah, Kaepernick, try telling Salley that vegetables make you weak!
