Arian Foster Offers The Best Defense of Veganism … Ever

As someone who spent many years as a vegetarian and who still doesn’t eat the flesh of land animals, I’ve long respected vegans, if only because I can’t imagine having the willpower to eliminate cheese from my diet.

I’ve known plenty of vegans who report feeling healthier as a result of eschewing animal products. They’ve done their research and have identified vegan-friendly sources of protein, vitamin B12, and other nutrients that most people get from meat and dairy products.

Still, anyone I know who has mentioned, even in passing, that he or she is a vegan (or even just a vegetarian), has been served a litany of questions about whether a vegan diet is healthy or natural, where vegans find protein, whether vegans always feel tired, the morality of eating animals, and whether God intended for people to eat meat.

Arian Foster of the Houston Texans, who has won a rushing title and gone to two Pro Bowls, and who will surely be a hot commodity in your fantasy draft, is a vegan. Last night he tweeted the only answer that vegans will ever need to give those who question their diet:

(I’m embarrassed to admit that, for a fraction of a second, I thought Foster was referring to former teammate Mario Williams, now with the Bills.)

He then added:

Twitter user @deepee77 challenged Foster’s thesis, saying, “Mario also got murdered by turtles twice a level,” to which Foster replied, “Yea, if you sucked.”

True.

Things are about to get real.

  4. With havin so much content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    definitely appreciate it.
