Since becoming a superstar, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has tried to find ways to make sure he stays healthy. Prior to this season, Foster announced that he was a vegan, meaning he would not eat anything that used animal products. Now, it looks as though Foster is a part-time vegan because he told reporters from time to time he will eat meat.
“I’m not in a cult,” Foster said, via Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle. “Nothing’s going to happen to me. I just wanted a piece of chicken. It wasn’t like temptation. I felt like I could use one.
“I’ve been dabbling back and forth,” Foster said. “I just like to eat healthy. The whole vegan thing, a lot of people are really interested in my food. . . .
“I’ve had meat since I said I don’t eat meat anymore, but I like to stay with the plant-based foods, but every now and then, I’ll eat something.”
Foster focusing on trying to keep his body healthy is probably a good thing since he currently leads the NFL in rushing touchdowns and is fifth in rushing yards.
