Not all boxes are anti-vegan. I am one of only a few vegans at my box, but I have found the community to be very accepting and supportive. I have been vegan for 7 years (vegetarian for 31 years) I eat a ton of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains, and I use a vegan protein powder right after my workouts. The hardest thing is that I spend a lot of time on food prep, because I make almost everything I eat (I had to learn to cook when I went vegan). I am careful about my sleep and recovery (I use whoop to monitor my recovery). I am able to workout 6 days/week, I am stronger than I’ve ever been, I am lean, and have more energy than my teenage children. For me at least, being a vegan crossfitter has been super positive. Go ahead, and try it! Crossfit is super fun!

I worked with a CF trainer one-on-one at a CF gym about 10 years ago. We had a great rapport and worked together for a while. When I told him I wouldn’t eat meat, he ghosted me. No joke. I hope he has evolved since then. Kudos to your trainer for sharing Brendan Brazier’s book with you, and it’s great to hear that you are thriving in your training!
