So you’re new to No Meat Athlete, and don’t know where to start …
(If you’re not new, well, you can safely ignore this one.)
So where do you start?
Well, you’re subscribed to the emails, so that’s a good thing. (Or if someone forwarded you this and you want to get on the list, go here.)
Next, how about the podcast? Subscribe via iTunes or another platform, and you’ll get automatic updates about each new episode we make — one per week, usually.
Finally, dive in. A few nut-jobs (who I love, of course) have told me they started at the first post and read every single one, but these days that’s almost impossible.
So I’ve made it easy for you. Here’s a list of the 30 (give or take) most important, fundamental articles on No Meat Athlete, in five main topic areas, so that you can scan through and start with whatever most grabs your attention.
A quick note: don’t get hung up on the vegetarian/vegan/plant-based language distinction in these titles. With the exception of a few recipes from the early days when I was vegetarian-but-not-vegan, pretty much everything is geared towards 100% vegan diets.
