Chef Charity Morgan holds a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and has over 15 years’ experience as a chef. What started as preparing homemade plant-based lunches for her husband, Tennessee Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan, turned into an in-demand service to provide delicious vegan meals for over a dozen of his teammates. She’s on a mission to show the world that you don’t have to sacrifice flavor or performance to eat plant-based. In this episode, you’ll hear how Chef Charity convinces naysayers to try her food by veganizing their favorite meals and what she cooks to satiate men who burn 5,000 calories a day. You’ll also get a peek into how their family made the switch, how it leveled up Derrick’s playing on the field, and how Chef Charity’s food helped the Titans have their best season in 15 years.   “It’s not about trying to follow someone else’s path of being vegan; it’s already your own path.” -Chef Charity Morgan   If you like this episode Screenshot it Post it on your Instagram Story or Twitter Tag Nimai, Bianca, and Generation V!
