Football Going Vegan

Former England international Jermaine Jenas investigates the rise of veganism in football.

Former England footballer Jermaine Jenas goes on a journey to discover the world of veganism – experimenting with a plant-based diet at home while also exploring how the concept is spreading in the professional game.

Jenas hears from current England international Chris Smalling on how becoming a vegan has reduced his injury issues and even led to him speaking with his boot manufacturer about developing leather-free boots.

Jenas also speaks to celebrity nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert, cooks a couple of dishes with Instagram chef sensation Miguel Barclay, and spends the day at the first ever vegan football club, Forest Green Rovers.

The former Tottenham midfielder also sits down with vegan activist Ed Winters for an animated discussion which leaves Jenas considering making his own move to a plant-based future.
