A 14-year old swimmer asked me for tips on being a vegan. She decided to be a vegan over concerns for the environment, animals and health, but wanted to make sure she has the energy for swimming as well as getting all of the nutrients she needs. I applaud her interest in nutrition and doing all she can to make sure that she makes healthful food choices.
