The Real-Life Diet of JaVale McGee, Vegan

  The Real-Life Diet of JaVale McGee, Vegan <p>The Golden State Warriors center says "once you go vegan, it sheds the bad fat real fast."</p>Of all the outlandish personalities in the Golden State Warriors—a team that includes both Draymond GreenandNick Young—JaVale McGee might be the most interesting. In addition to his rim-protection and lob-conversion duties, McGee is also: the tallest techie you’ll ever come across, a fanny-pack enthusiast, host of the very entertaining “Parking Lot Chronicles” YouTube show on Kevin Durant's channel and, as of last year, a full-time vegan.

When I first sit down with Francesca Chaney, I immediately notice one thing: her tattoo. Black lines on the inside of her left forearm create the outline of a potted plant, which seems almost too relevant as the two of us talk inside of Sol Sips, the vegan restaurant in Bushwick, Brooklyn, that the 22-year-old recently opened, which also happens to be dotted with its own real-life greenery.

"I feel like I’m in such a space in my life right now, where a lot of the seeds that I’ve planted have really come into fruition," she says, as she explains that she got the tattoo a few weeks ago. "And then it's also about continuing to plant. Because there's always going to be ebbs and flows. There are challenging aspects of it, so I like that it's on my wrist because I'm just like, 'Okay keep planting. Just continue to plant.'"

Kevin Smith Goes Vegetarian After Heart Attack

  Kevin Smith Goes Vegetarian After Heart Attack <p>The vegetarian shift is apparently a reaction to the heart attack, and it does not sound like the diet change will be the only lifestyle alteration the filmmaker and actor is facing.</p>After performing the first of two scheduled live stand-up shows last Sunday night, filmmaker, comic book writer, and actor Kevin Smith suffered a near-fatal heart attack. A week later, in his first Facebook post after breaking the news of the heart attack, Smith revealed that he was recovering at home from the hospital, and also that he was in his second day as a vegetarian.

The success she’s referring to is, of course, Sol Sips. For Chaney, who can now bill herself as a young, black female business owner, the idea started back when she was a full-time student, working three jobs, and still trying to stay healthy. She didn't feel like she had many options where she was living, so she began making organic drinks with four ingredients or less. The goal was to create simple, nutrient-rich beverages for herself and her community; she started selling them at her cousin’s apothecary and at festivals and then realized that not only were people buying the drinks, they were actually seeing the benefits.
