87: Dz Vegan Kid Athletes

Dz Vegan Kid Athletes are three sisters, Danaé, 14 years old, Danya 8 years old & Danielle 4 years old. They lead very active lifestyles; Danaé dances six days a week, Danya does gymnastics six days a week, Danielle does rhythmic gymnastics three days a week and dances once a week.

Danya was born vegan but at the age of four and a half, had tasted meat for the first time. She ate meat on and off but 1 year later, she stopped eating chicken and fish completely after learning how the animals were treated and killed.

Danaé was diagnosed with fibromyalgia eighteen months ago and was on four different medications to control her pain. She missed a lot of dance practices because of this. She was inspired by her Mom (who also has auto immune disease, endometriosis, fibromyalgia, thyroid disease and asthma) to go 100% vegan, after seeing her get off her medications and become much healthier! Danaé is now off her daily medication, drinks lots of raw green juices with turmeric to help reduce inflammation.

Danielle was born ten weeks premature and weighed just over 3 pounds. The doctors told her Mom that if she made it, she'd have life-long lung problems since she previously needed a ventilator to breathe. Doctors also said that she would have problems with her gut and not be able to digest foods properly which would require her to be on medication the rest of her life.

These girls are on a mission to share with others simple, fun ways to stay fit, eat healthy and be kind to the animals! They want to let the world know that growing up vegan rocks!
