Chef Charity Morgan: On Feeding Plant-Powered Athletes and Cooking What You Love

May 8, 2019

Watch Episode 21 with Chef Charity Morgan here:

When meat is considered to be an integral part of athleticism and masculinity, how can you convince a team of football players that a plant-based diet is best for their health and performance?

Chef Charity Morgan holds a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and is leveraging her artistry in the kitchen to feed dozens of NFL players plant-based, nutrient-rich meals every day.

Once players got a taste of the lunches she was making for her husband, Tennessee Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan, they realized they didn’t have to sacrifice taste or results on the field to be vegan.

Today Chef Charity joins us to discuss how she’s fueling a team with plants, how she creates culturally-diverse and delicious meals, and what switching for good has meant for her family’s health.
