Vegan Athletes Compete at AZ Vegetarian Food Festival, 1/28Vegan Athletes Compete at AZ Vegetarian Food Festival, 1/28
by BWW News Desk - Jan 26, 2017

Belying the myth that world-class athletes must consume animal protein in order to build muscles, this weekend's Arizona Vegetarian Food Festival will showcase a number of ripped competitors who fuel their feats with plant-based diets. The festival takes place at the Scottsdale Civic Center Amphitheater this Saturday, January 28th and Sunday, January 29th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Bodybuilders and power-lifters John Lewis, Ndem Nkem, Will Tucker, Robert Cheeke, and Thomas Tadlock are among those who will speak about their training regimens and vegan diets. Also on tap is Olympic silver medalist Dotsie Bausch. In addition to her Olympic title, she is a 7-time U.S. National Champion in cycling and 2-time Pan American gold medal winner who also speaks out on behalf of animal rights and the prevention of eating disorders. The founder of Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine, Brenda Carey, will give a presentation focusing on nutrition and inspiring stories from athletes around the world. Other speakers at the festival will discuss environmentalism, animal activism, and the health benefits of vegan meals. There will also be cooking demonstrations from a dozen celebrity chefs including Fran Costigan and Jason Wyrick. There will also be a variety of entertainers including Warshow Angels' own Kneel Cohn, the Riley Rainbow Family Circus, Jonathan Luther, Louis IV, and Foresteater's Mikey Pro. In addition to the speakers and entertainment, the festival will feature more than 70 exhibitors, many of whom will offer free tasting samples of their vegan wares. Ruchi Indian Cuisine and Simon's Hot Dogs are just two of the eateries on the roster. Children's activities, yoga classes, a charity raffle benefiting FARM, and various fitness activities will round out the festival. The AZ Vegetarian Food Festival is presented by U.S. Veg Corp, a company which also produces the popular NYC Vegetarian Food Festival and the CA Vegetarian Food Festival.
