Tony Gonzalez of the NFL!

Tony Gonzalez is an extraordinary athlete! This 14 year NFL star and vegan athlete is proving to the sports world that you can be vegan, as well as powerful, lean, and fast. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl 11 times.

In 2007 Gonzalez suffered from facial paralysis known as Bell's Palsy. Gonzalez began eating a vegan diet after reading The "China Study" by T. Colin Campbell. Tony and his nutritionist ultimately decided that eating meat on occasion would be best for his performance, though he avoids red meat.

Here you can see Tony making a smoothie with a variety of fruits and vegetables, you won't believe how many different kinds. This is a great reminder for all of us to get variety in our diet so that we get enough vitamins and minerals. Notice what Tony has to say about blueberries and cherries, and their importance for athletes.
