Vegan and vegetarian crossfit diet


Eating a vegetarian or vegan diet goes hand-in-hand with a healthy and active lifestyle.  More sportsmen and women across the world are adopting it in order to compete at the top of their game.  Famous examples of vegetarian and vegan athletes include Carl Lewis, Brendan Brazier, Venus Williams, Peter Siddle and Patrik Baboumian (the World’s Strongest man!).  Crossfit is quickly becoming the most popular sport on the planet, we should know because three of the Fry’s Directors (Richard, Shaun and Hayley) are avid crossfit athletes.  We sat down with Richard Kelly to put together a meal plan that you can use as a vegetarian or vegan crossfitter.
