Quantcast Vegetarian StarMary Whipple Dotsie Bausch Give Olympic Worthy Vegetarian Recipes

The June 2012 issue of Vegetarian Times features two athletes who power their Olympic training sessions with plant-based meals.

Mary Whipple is a champion coxswain who’s scored both a Gold and Silver medal in previous Olympic games. Dotsie Bausch is a seven-time U.S. National bike racer who says, “It makes no sense to me that anything would have to undergo one second of suffering so that I could enjoy it.”

The Olympic team hopefuls shared a pre and post workout snack they might enjoy as part of preparing for the July 2012 games.

Whipple completes her workouts with a Green Smoothie, blending together 3/4 to 1 cup shredded kale leaves, 1 to 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds, 1/2 frozen sliced banana, 1/2 cup frozen strawberries and 1/2 to 3/4 cup of your choice of milk. Besides smoothies, Whipple told NBC she’s trying to “master the soufflé.”

Before hitting the pedals, Bausch bites into “Power Toast,” a slice of whole grain bread topped with avocado, tomato, chia seeds and chili powder, salt and pepper to taste.  This  toast  not only gives Bausch power on the road, but energy to volunteer at  the Irvine Animal Care Center, a park-like facility that has cared for thousands of abused, neglected, homeless and  soon-to-be adopted animals.
