Former NBA Champion Advocates the Vegan Lifestyle

Basketball star John Salley tells the LA Times why veganism has changed his life.

National Basketball Association champion and vegan John Salley reveals to the LA Times how much cutting out meat and dairy and adopting a whole foods plant-based diet has changed his health. “In the morning, I eat organic grits … and I have ginger tea with coconut oil. I eat a lot of kale, and I drink about half a gallon to a gallon of water a day. At night, I’ll make pizza with almond cheese and different vegetables and seasonings,” Salley says. The basketball player also said that if he had been vegan while he was playing basketball he might not have had to retire in 2000 due to his body’s overuse. Salley recently appeared on The Rachel Ray Show and talked about his favorite tricks for making the best guacamole.
