Rich Roll has a history of going all in. Sometimes that works in his favor, like when he became a star butterflyer at Stanford University alongside Olympic swimmers Pablo Morales, John Moffet, and Jeff Kostoff. Or when he went to law school at Cornell, and launched into a career as a well heeled entertainment lawyer. But it also led to a drug and alcohol addiction, and to a bad habit of overeating that left him 50 pounds over his college swim weight of 160, and winded when he climbed up stairs. Roll was about to turn 40. That’s when he decided to hit restart.
In typical all-in fashion, he decided to do something drastic: cut meat out of his diet completely, just as he’d given up his addiction to drugs and alcohol ten years before. He went on a cleanse, then he went vegetarian, then he went on a vegan diet.
Now a full-time wellness advocate, motivational speaker, and podcaster, the author of Finding Ultra has a new book out—a cookbook-cum-nutrition-manifesto called The Plantpower Way he co-authored with his wife, Julie Piatt. Below, Roll shares his thoughts on raising a vegan family, and four of his favorite recipes.
Aside from how things taste, though, you’re really wanting people to go deeper.
I want people to realize that they can have so much more control over their health and their diet than they think. The implicit message in this book is that we all need to be more educated about our food. Where it comes from. What’s in it. And we just want to encourage people to begin somewhere. The idea of perfection is the enemy of progress. Meet us halfway. Have your own journey with this diet. The power of these foods is to unlock. And we want people to unlock and unleash their most authentic selves possible.
