Nutrition is a key component for any discipline and Matt teaches athletes not only about plant-based protein and nutrients, but how to prepare healthy vegan meals. A vegan athlete himself Matt has competed in the Norseman- the world's hardest Ironman in Eidfjord, Norway and is a 3x finisher of the Furnace Creek 508, a 500-mile non-stop bike race through Death Valley that National Geographic calls the 8th hardest race in the world. He writes for both the No Meat Athlete and The Discerning Brute websites. And he loves burritos.
