Living the Plantpower Way
When you hear the word ‘vegan’ do you instantly imagine bland images of lettuce and raw carrots, devoid of protein or any real layers of taste? Do you think of tambourine banging hippies with dreadlocked hair, wearing purple trousers?
Well today we’re challenging that perception – just like Rich Roll at the SumoSalad Living the Plantpower Way events in Sydney & Melbourne.
Our very own Lawrence Mitchell brought Rich Roll and his wife Julie Piatt over to Australia to share their personal experience about living a plant-powered life and show us how that decision has helped them transform their lives and achieve incredible results – to an audience of over 1,000!
Rich’s story has a familiar start – working hard, getting into bad eating habits, drinking way too much alcohol and prioritising work over health. These choices resulted in an unhealthy lifestyle, creating problems for his physical and mental state.
It all changed in 2001 when Rich turned his life around by embracing healthy habits and focusing on his personal fitness goals, putting his mind to competing in (and winning) numerous sporting events and being named in the 25 Fittest Men In The World.
