Born to Run

We speak to GB duathlete Lisa Gawthorne about her plant based nutrition plans, training regimes and most successful year to date

The stigma around plant based eating and physical health has, for a long time, been an issue. There has always been a stereotype of the nutrient-deficient vegan, who can barely lift the block of tofu they love to eat. Of course, like most stereotypes, this has little grounding in the truth and people who eat plant based food can be healthier or unhealthier than anybody else.

Because of this stigma, there’s definitely a need to prove yourself when you transition to a plant based diet, and for Lisa Gawthorne, this has become a driving force behind her sports career.

We spoke to Lisa about her most exciting year to date where she has represented her country of Great Britain on the world duathlon circuit for the first time and to find out how she fuels herself on plants rather than animal products.

Hi Lisa, you’ve been veggie since childhood and vegan for 15 years, how has a vegan diet helped to focus your health and fitness regime?

About PlantBased

Welcome to our December issue of PlantBased magazine. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, we’re not holding back on the festive food in this issue — it is the most indulgent of seasons and we’re packed full of amazing plant based meals. December is a month that seems to bring people together more so than any other. Day-to-day we go about our busy lives and often get caught up in the things that aren’t important, but at this time of year we come together, spread love and remember all the great things we are so privileged to have. I know that I will be surrounding myself with all the people that matter most for the entirety of the festive season. Christmas dinner is often billed as the most important meal of the year. This can make the entire experience rather stressful, and there is nothing worse than feeling stressed in the kitchen. Check out our top tips for avoiding Christmas stress alongside your guide to creating a delicious Christmas feast, with not one, not two, but three stunning roast dinner mains. Don’t miss our hearty and fluffy Yorkshire puddings either, puddings without eggs are something that many vegans have struggled to achieve, but I've tried these first hand and can’t wait to make them myself on Christmas day. Stepping away from the December spirit for a moment and a recent trip to Amsterdam provided me with the opportunity to eat a whole lot of incredible food. Find out all about the food I ate, and how to make a veganised version of the traditional dish of stamppot too. I look forward to seeing you all in 2018, for issue 4, where we’re going to be bringing you a magazine packed with cleaner recipes to help kick-start your new year in a very healthy way.
