About

Welcome to Vegan Runner Eats! I am very excited that you are visiting my site!

My name is Alina Zavatsky, and I a vegan runner, three-time marathoner,Alina weightlifter, feminist, whole food plant-based diet enthusiast, and a promoter of all things fun, healthy, useful, and creative!

Here at Vegan Runner Eats, I strive to deliver useful information for anyone who’s interested in whole food, plant-based diet and active lifestyle. From articles on the benefits of going plant-based to delicious oil-free vegan recipes, as well as the info about running marathons as a vegan and a roundup of detailed fitness workouts – you can find it all on Vegan Runner Eats!

Interested in how I became a vegan runner? Read about it here.

My story has also been featured on Forks Over Knives site. Viva la Vegan recently published this interview with me about my views on being a vegan athlete. I’ve contributed articles to No Meat Athlete blog, MoneySavingMom.com, OneGreenPlanet.com, FatFreeVegan.com, etc.

Here’s an excerpt from one of my posts about the vision I have for Vegan Runner Eats blog:

  • – I want this blog to convey the message of kindness. You are never going to feel not welcome here just because you are not a ‘perfect vegan’, or not a vegan at all.
  • – I want this blog to inspire you, so that maybe you at least gave a thought to eating less meat/cooking at home/beginning to exercise, etc.
  • – I want you to feel better after reading my posts because no matter what they are about, they are all intended to convey a positive message.
  • – I promise to never lower my standards to shaming/bullying anyone for their imperfections because we all are a work in progress, plus there’s already plenty of negativity in this life.

All of the posts on my blog are my own and express my personal opinions and views. This being said, Vegan Runner Eats is also open for sponsorship opportunities – read more about it here. To maintain my integrity, all sponsored posts will also reflect my personal views, so I would rather post nothing than write a bad review.
