In addition to being a Vancouver Olympics Gold and Silver Medalist, Hannah Teter is also a vegetarian and is working on living a 'greener' life.
I have a Snowboard Today Twitter Account as well where I featured this article. Per the recent People magazine article she started being Vegetarian last year and says she feels "stronger mentally and physically..and springier". She also says, "more people would become vegetarians if they knew how animals were slaughtered." She starts each day with a power smoothie, and for dinner loves cooking stir-fry vegetarian dishes with a side of Quinoa, a high-protein grain.
In addition to eating healthy, she wants to live greener. She says, "I'm moving into a yurt in the woods near my parents' home in Vermont." Her father produces maple syrup on the property that Hannah sells for her charity Hannah's Gold. The money goes to the needy in Kenya and Haiti, and her sponsor Samsung granted $30,000 to the charity on Saturday in recognition of Hannah's silver medal.
