Vegan Celebrities & Why They Made the Switch to Plant-Based Eating

The biggest food trend in 2019 was plant-based meats and veganism. Going plant-based has swept the globe from vegan celebrities endorsing its benefits to influential bloggers and athletes. We’re seeing an explosion of people curious about going plant-based or reducing their meat intake.

This curiosity is what inspired us to write our Plant-Based Vegan Eating Guide.

Thousands of our BodyRockers are plant-based—including some of our trainers—and even more were writing to us asking if we had a plant-based nutrition guide. We realized we didn’t and got to work fixing the problem. The result is a comprehensive ebook that can help eat greener and stay healthy.
