Recently, Baur shared his plant-based diet and animal-friendly ethics in an interview with Runner’s World. Baur notes that he fuels up with smoothies made from kale, bananas, spinach, blueberries, and flaxseeds, along with non-dairy milks including hemp, coconut, or soy. He also talks about Farm Sanctuary’s achievements, such as getting gestation crate legislation passed, and most importantly making animal welfare and factory farming a mainstream concern.
