  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.'"

Shake Shack to Test Its Own In-House Veggie Burger

  Shake Shack to Test Its Own In-House Veggie Burger <p>The Veggie Shack patty is made from black beans, brown rice, and roasted beets.</p>Meatless hamburgers have emerged as one of the hottest trends in the food service industry, in no small part thanks to the growth and success of the “bleeding” fake-meat burger brands Impossible Burger and Beyond Meat which take a scientific approach to revolutionizing meat-free patties. But though these brands have started popping up everywhere from TGI Fridays to White Castle to MLB ballparks, some restaurants prefer to try their own take on veggie burgers, including Shake Shack, which is set to debut its own in-house meat-free burger next week.

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.
