Have you wondered where you can eat in Wimbledon if you’re Vegan?
At Wimbledon Debenture Holders we did some digging around for you. But first we thought we would share some interesting facts from the Top Vegan Tennis players with you.
The Wimbledon Tennis Tournament is only a few weeks away, and a few vegan players are well on their way to more titles.
Today’s players have continued to smash stereotypes, as an increasing amount of tennis professionals have resorted to plant-based diets, to improve their career and their health.
3 Vegan Tennis Players To Watch At Wimbledon This Year.
31-year-old Serbian player opened a vegan restaurant, Eqvita, in Monte Carlo in 2016, serving up colourful Mediterranean-inspired and plant-focused dishes to the local and tourist crowds.
Along with her equally talented sister Serena, is the definition of a pure powerhouse. She has won 7 Grand Slam titles and four Olympic medals, all while battling a severe autoimmune disease. The tennis star chose veganism in 2011 to combat her Sjogren’s syndrome, adhering to a strict and mostly raw diet. It seems to be working for her.
Temporarily adopted veganism to support her sister and has been flirting with plant-based fuel ever since. However, since becoming pregnant and having her daughter, Olympia, she has been more dedicated to eating nourishing vegan food.
Now you know there are players that love the plant-based fuel where can you find some? Here is our top 3 Vegan friendly restaurants in Wimbledon SW19.
