NHL Star Georges Laraque Goes From Vegetarian To Full-Fledged Vegan
Earlier this year we reported that powerhouse NHL star Georges Laraque had gone vegetarian after watching one of our favorite documentaries, Earthlings. In May, Georges said:
“I’m also proud to announce that I have officially become a vegetarian and will slowly work towards becoming totally vegan.”
Well the deed is done folks!
Since June 1st of this year, Georges has been sans meat, dairy, eggs, leather and all other animal products. He claims the decision was made primarily for political rather than nutritional reasons and says that, “It’s important to break the stereotype that all vegans are skinny people with long hair.”
Standing six-foot three and weighing 245 lbs, Georges is definitely redefining the stereotypical vegan.
“People still think it’s kind of funny, but I’m not doing this to be funny,” he said. “There are more puppy mills in Quebec than anywhere else in Canada, and no laws to shut them down. People get slapped with a fine and six months later they reopen. Do you think that’s funny?”
We certainly don’t, Georges. We certainly don’t! More from Ecorazzi.com
