Organic Football Trivia of the Day...Did you know that increasingly, even big, bruising pro football players are choosing organic and sustainably produced foods to provide the power they need to play?
- Tennessee Titans linebacker Will Witherspoon is so passionate about eating healthy that when he’s not worrying quarterbacks on the field, he raises grass-fed cattle sustainably on his family farm in Missouri. “As a pro football player, I can’t take over-the-counter cold medicine without letting my trainer know about it,” he says. “Why would I want my kids eating beef from cattle fed hormones or routine antibiotics?” (Source: HuffingtonPost.com)
- The Denver Broncos’ Brady Quinn powers his workouts with organic foods, including veggies and raw foods. He says “I’d like to give my parents a lot of credit. … a lot of it too has been the workouts, eating right, and taking care of my body.” (Source: MensFitness.com)
- All-Pro Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez even wrote a book about how eating right has given him health and longevity in the game. “For me it was finding an edge, becoming as healthy as I could be. …the more you eat organic, local, cutting down your meat intake — it’s also better for the environment.” (Source: MindBodyGreen.com)
