There are a great deal of misconceptions about vegan expert athletes, but Cam Newton established the record straight Thursday.
A prevalent imagined is that vegan athletes just can’t probably get enough protein to sustain their toughness. But at 6-foot-5 and 245 lbs, and with the way he runs the ball, that obviously isn’t an concern for the New England Patriots quarterback.
But there’s a different stigma affiliated with his diet regime that Newton wanted to put to rest.
“Just because I’m vegan doesn’t suggest I just go exterior and select up grass and, you know, place ranch on it,” Newton stated, through Nicole Yang of The Boston Globe, before rapidly correcting himself on the dressing choice.
“Well, I guess that is not vegan. Or place balsamic on it and take in it. I continue to really like excellent foodstuff.”
The quarterback has opened up about his diet regime in the past, and about how consuming plant-based has resulted in a exceptional alter with how his entire body responds to food items.
Newton reported he’s been having “a whole lot of Chinese food items,” due to the fact those dining establishments are the only types with vegan possibilities open up by the time he leaves Gillette Stadium.
It seems like Newton could use some cafe suggestions for the Better Boston location.
In the meantime, can we get this male a vegan pigskin to throw around?
