As I sit here anxiously awaiting dinner time, I'm asking myself, "Why on earth did I sign up for a 30-day clean eating challenge? Why am I doing this as a plant-based athlete?"

I would encourage you to never stop looking for answers if you or a loved one is ever struck with a diagnosis you are not willing to accept.
