Officially a vegan now. We'll see how this goes. But week one down. So far, so good. Feels wonderful.- Arian Foster (@ArianFoster) July 5, 2012
For those of you baffled by the opening moments of this post, the vegan diet omits any form of animal products.
(People often follow this up with: "So, do you eat fish?" Answer: "Is a fish a living being?" BANG. Also: No meat. No dairy. No poultry. No sea animals. And no honey.)
Foster, something of a Renaissance man, set off alarms with those who care more about his yards per carry than his intestinal flora count. Many were concerned that an NFL running back might go soft if he stripped ribs and deviled eggs from his regiment.
People feel so strong about meat and milk. I wish they felt this strong about peace.- Arian Foster (@ArianFoster) July 5, 2012
One deep-thinker fired a shot at Foster on Twitter, reminding him of the milk he drank as a newborn.
"My mom didn't produce cow milk," Foster wrote -- and on that front, he's correct. We are on the hook, however, to produce a new version of the video you see above, in which Foster waxes poetic on breakfast burritos and chicken enchiladas. Sigh.
Let's keep in mind that Foster is in better physical shape that 99 percent of the American public. No need for panic here.Â
Fantasy underlings: Stand down.
