As another Tour de France comes to a close, I found this article in The Vancouver Sun to be quite timely. David Shishkoff is a competitive cyclist and a vegan. According to the article, he regularly finishes in the top five. It’s amazing the amount of calories the sport of cycling requires. It becomes more of a challenge as a vegan cyclist. Shishkoff, and other vegan athletes, prove it can be done.

Dietitian Susan Boegman explains:

“It’s a lot easier to get adequate iron from eating a steak, or eating fish, or eating dark meat chicken than it is to get it from plant sources,” Boegman says. “It’s totally doable, but it takes some dedication.”

As been proven time and time again, it’s not about what you don’t eat but what you do eat that makes the difference.
