Running on plants
These really good eggs are just as good for feats of endurance as they are for the environment. When you’re powered by quality plant protein, you can play harder and adventure longer – take it from athletes like DeAndre Jordan, Ali & Ashlyn and Scott Jurek.
Each serving of JUST Egg has 5 to 6 grams of high-quality, cold-processed mung bean protein. So if you’re making ultrarunner Scott Jurek’s Beast Mode Burrito recipe with two JUST Egg Folded in it, that’s already 12 grams of plant-based protein to keep you full and energized and to help recover and rebuild those muscles after your biggest hike of the season.
Eating plant-based has more benefits than meets the eye. Says NBA player DeAndre Jordan, “Becoming plant-based was a positive change for me mentally and physically.” All around, it just feels good when you’re doing something both better for yourself and for the planet. And we can’t argue with an NBA champion now, can we?
Our athletes always emphasize that it’s not just what you’re eating to fuel your workouts, but how you’re nourishing yourself on the recovery days. Soccer star Ashlyn Harris says, “I’m 36 and still breaking records, and I credit that to what I do off the field. I have to eat right and fuel my body with really good food.” Because our eggs are made from plants, they have zero cholesterol and 69% less saturated fat than chicken eggs. Reducing dietary cholesterol intake, as well as replacing saturated fat with polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat, can help reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
