Is Cade Cunningham A Vegan?

Cade Cunningham is an NBA player that has gone vegan.

When speaking to Marc Spears of Andscape, Cunningham opened up about his experience with veganism.

“I don’t have the desire to eat meat anymore. I’m at the point now where it’s almost unappealing. I got a chef right now that’s been amazing for me, so I’m at the house eating a lot”, he had said.

“I had [veggie] burgers [Monday] night. I like most comfort food. She makes it vegan and really well. So, being able to have comfort food, everyday food, and the way she makes it vegan, I don’t have to worry about anything when I’m home. I couldn’t ask for nothing else. She’s making mac and cheese. Pizza. She is making everything.

“As a vegan, I’ve done a lot of research and stuff on veganism. It’s actually crazy. I feel like I could eat less now as a vegan. My stomach has shrunk a little bit to where I don’t need as much food just because my body can use all the food that it eats”, he added.
