"To reach optimal performance we need fuel. No dirty crappy stuff, we need premium clean crisp fuel. Fortunately I love food, I love to cook, and i'm always looking for recipes to try. So recently when my friends Daniel and Anna sent me their new eBook, Vegan Athletic Food which is designed specifically for athletes, I was stoked to check it out." — Dan Whitehead

Dan is a friend of Vegan Athletic. He rocks our tech-tees during training and racing and has helped us to refine the design and fit since launching. I asked Dan to let me know his thoughts on the eBook thinking he would just send me an email... instead he just went and made video about it! Thanks heaps mate. Go check out Dan Whitehead on YouTube!

Fiona Oakes is the greatest runner you’ve never heard of. She’s a 4X world record holder in distance running, and she has completed some of the toughest endurance running challenges on earth including the formidable Marathon des Sables, the Antarctic Ice Marathon, and the North Pole Marathon. She’s also a volunteer firefighter, operates Tower Hill Animal Sanctuary with 450+ animals, and does all of this without a kneecap (she lost it to disease at the age of 17). You’d be hard-pressed to find another individual with as much grit as Fiona with an equal amount of humility to match.
