The WWE athlete claims this is no longer feasible because he’s develop soy sensitivities.
“I became a vegan for health issues and then I developed a soy intolerance. So, I’ve been getting really sick lately. it’s a very unmanly way to stop being vegan, to have a soy intolerance. [Laughs.] But I was getting sick all the time, and they were trying to figure out what it was and they found out it was the soy.”
“Being on the road, being vegan and trying to get your protein in other than soy, there’s just nothing to eat. There’s soy in everything. Most of the vegan things you can eat are tofu dishes and whatnot, made out of soy.”
“But, we did a food/blood/allergy test to found out what i can eat and whatnot. So, it’s not like I’m eating loads of meat or anything like that. I’m eating mostly eggs and stuff for my protein.”
“But, I don’t know when this came out to people, but all of a sudden on Twitter, people have just been bashing me on Twitter. The vegan community has been very angry. [Laughs.]”
Some in the vegan community may be angry. But most are probably just perplexed. Soy may be a problem for your belly, but it’s never a problem for your vegan diet. Eggs are never necessary to get your protein needs if tofu and tempeh aren’t options.
Wheat-based and soy-free seitan, beans and legumes, nuts and seeds are just a few items that can replace soy, along with cereals and pastas.
