My name is Ryan and I'm a writer for Clearly Veg. I'm a vegetarian that writes and trains/teaches grappling (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & wrestling) full-time. My goal is to educate readers about the political and environmental state of the world, and how that long-standing model of living affects the world around us. I especially like digging into what we eat, how we get said food, and the aftermath of this very large and political process. If I can help a few athletes get beyond the swarm of misinformation that surrounds the possibility of them going a more "veg" direction - even better.
