Current Conference Premier table toppers Forest Green Rovers have shown the red card to meat, dairy and eggs in a bid to make the club exclusively vegan. Meat has already been off the menu for players for the last four years for staff and fans at The New Lawn Stadium. Club owner Dale Vince, who is vegan himself claims that the changes have gone down well with all those associated with the Gloucestershire club. Vince preached:

“We stopped serving meat to our players, fans and staff about four seasons ago. The gap between vegetarian and vegan food is actually quite small; it’s a step rather than a leap to take, a lot of our food has been vegan for some time now, and this season we’ve taken the last small step.

We’ve been on a mission since then to introduce our fans to this new world. When you drop the ‘meat and two veg’ approach, a whole new world of food options opens up. The meat and dairy industry is responsible for more emissions than all the world’s planes, trains, cars and boats put together,” 

It involves incredible animal cruelty and staggering numbers: in Britain alone, over one billion animals are eaten each year — three million per day — and that’s not even counting fish. Each of these animals lives a short and awful life, and each of them consumes more food than their bodies provide us with.”

We respect Vince for having courage in his convictions, but we can’t help wonder how it’d go down at the likes of St James’ Park when a pissed up Geordie gets told his half-time sausage roll and pint of beer has now been replaced by a chickpea salad and a soy latte. If you need more advice on becoming vegan, check out recoveryourhealthtoday.com .
