Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Plant-Strong Athletes!

According to a presentation at the 2013 Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting & Expo, a balanced plant-based diet provides the same quality of fuel for athletes as a meat-based diet. In fact, analysis of the bones of Roman Gladiators indicates they may have been vegetarians. Today, many famous athletes are vegetarian such as marathon runners Bart Yasso and Scott Jurek, and pro Ironman triathlete Brendan Brazier.

Plant-strong is the way to be good stewards of our bodies! This way we help decrease the rate of many chronic diseases, we alleviate suffering and we live harmoniously with God’s farmed animals.
