Beyond Ambassadors | Charity and Derrick Morgan
October 22, 2018
After recently announcing that Alex Honnold had joined our Beyond Ambassador roster, we're expanding the team and thrilled to welcome both Charity and Derrick Morgan to the crew! Derrick Morgan is a current NFL linebacker for the Tennessee Titans and his wife Charity, is an expert plant-based chef. The two of them are leading a revolution down in Nashville, getting more than 20 of Derrick's teammates to incorporate plant-based meat in their weekly meal plan, thanks to Chef Charity's delicious custom catered meals. Her daily deliveries of hearty, protein-packed food inspired Derrick's teammates to give it a try.
After both Derrick and Charity transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle and felt the numerous benefits, they began championing plant-based eating to their friends, family and ultimately, Derrick's teammates. Not only did Derrick experience reduced inflammation and faster recovery times after shifting to a plant-based diet, but he's noticed a huge difference in his performance on the field as well.
Chef Charity's approach to making her food accessible is to stick with the flavors and dishes people know and love but using only plant-based ingredients. According to Charity, "Players love getting a huge double manly sized Beyond Burger. It opens the doors for many other plant-based meals. They realize it's no compromise from what they usually eat."
We're so excited to welcome both of these trailblazers to the Beyond Meat family!
