Derrick Morgan, NFL Linebacker and Chef Charity Morgan are leading the way in demonstrating to mainstream culture that you don't need to eat meat in order to be a play maker. Derrick made the transition to a plant-based diet to improve his performance on the field only to receive backlash and ridicule from his teammates. But after seeing the delicious meals his wife Charity was whipping up, combined with his ability to play better and recover faster, the ridicule quickly turned to curiosity. This keynote presentation will dive into the myths that have run their course in our society regarding the perceived need for animal products in order to be strong and athletic. Derrick and Charity will share their story of breaking down barriers by bringing plant-based eating into the NFL locker room and discuss their vision for the future of sports, food and nutrition.
