Former NBA Great John Salley “Dishes” with Alexis Brooks about the Vegan Life Path


John Salley – “There's not going to be a dead animal in my refrigerator!”

Four time NBA champion John Salley, admittedly a former “carnivore” decided to do a complete switch-a-roo many years ago and become a vegan. He's since become outspoken as a wellness guru and advocate for animal rights including his work with PETA. But it doesn't stop there.

The slender six foot seven inch Salley is also a big proponent of cannabis and has no problem sharing his love for cognac. “Dark liquor is in my system,” he said while sitting down with me to film our exclusive interview on-location in Los Angeles at the 16th Annual Conscious Life Expo.

Though short and sweet, our chat was power packed and full of fun, though we discussed many different serious aspects of what he calls, “The Betta Life Path,” which was also the name of his talk he would give shortly after our sit down at the expo.

When I nudged Salley to discuss the connection of how what we put into our bodies affects our spiritual life, he was quick to respond. “This [body] is our avatar, and our spirit is inside the avatar…but in order for this avatar to live, I don’t need another avatar to die. When people are talking about being spiritual, why would you need to kill anything, and feel spirit strong?” Salley replied.

John Salley has had quite the impact on people around him including his wife and daughter who are both vegans as well.

He is adamant about not allowing any “dead flesh” to be in his home, not in his fridge, not on his plate and he also says he won't break bread, so-to-speak with anyone who eats meat.

Tough words from an otherwise easy going guy!
