We called it the Divine Double because we were blessed to do two things we love the most back to back. Never would have imaged that when Tate and I first started playing hockey together nearly 6 years ago. At the time, neither of us were vegan. A few years after I went vegan in 2015 (after 25 years as a vegetarian), Tate started asking me questions about eating plant based.
He finally went all in one year ago. And by all in, I mean that he dove into animal activism and advocacy as well. Thus our Divine Double consisted of playing hockey and then going directly to a pig vigil. It was a special day for both of us and it made a lasting impression on me.
That’s why last fall, I hired Tate as a member of our Vibrant Energy staff. Tate marks his vegan anniversary by the Super Bowl and last weekend marked his first veganniversary.
Tonight, we will hit the ice to do what we love and although I will be doing my best to beat Tate, I am super proud of this #vibrantNRGizer.
