In the spirit of the Olympic Games, today’s Meatless Monday tidbit features Venus and Serena Williams. These tennis stars (who happen to be sisters) will compete in both singles and doubles competition at the 2012 London Games.
In August 2011, Venus was diagnosed with an incurable autoimmune disorder. She currently manages the symptoms with a raw vegan diet. To support her sister, Serena does not eat foods which are off limits to Venus, including meat. Since the sisters live together it means that much of Serena’s diet is vegetarian. What an awesome support system and a healthy kitchen.
