Vegan Race Car Driver eats Veggie Burgers for Breakfast

If you’ve ever taken a road trip, you know a little bit about the physically demanding world of a racecar driver. But for vegan professional driver Andy Lally, stretch breaks, ample supplies of tofu jerky, and scanning between the best Sirius comedy stations aren’t an option. 

Lally still gets by, and is proud to walk GQ through the “real-life” daily diet that has him on the fast track. A vegan since 2010 because “there’s not a good argument not to be,” he still had to defend the age old how do you get your protein argument in this interview. I’m pretty sure that’s to blame for the sample menu he provided below:

Breakfast: Veggie burger with avocado

Lunch: Veggie bowl: Black beans, rice, tomatoes, guacamole, tempeh

Snack: Pistachios

Dinner: Whole grain pasta, broccoli, tomatoes, garlic

Dessert: Cookie dough-flavored almond milk ice cream

So while it’s not considered a vegan requirement to have burgers for breakfast or ice cream for dessert, it’s pretty rad to see an athlete doing both supposably on the daily. After all, this is his claim to fame – the fuel behind being a five-time winner of the Rolex 24, taking on a 24-hour race at Daytona, winning Rookie of the Year at the NASCAR Sprint Cup, and being a three-time Grand Am class champion.

I can’t help but wonder if the oatmeal I’ve been scarfing down first thing in the morning is holding me back from such accomplishments. Mountain biking, skateboarding, and Brazilian jiujitsu might have to do with how in shape Lally is, too, I guess.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
