Announcing the Winner of our 2019 Cruise Photo Contest!

Once again, we put out a call for a Holistic Holiday at Sea photo contest. This year there were some great pictures and videos on the cruise and at the ports! Thanks to everyone who posted pics and used the hashtag #vegancruise. We were so inspired by your pictures of food, connection, blue waters, plant-based speakers, and friends.

We’re excited to announce that our winner is the Instagram account @plantbaseddfw! The account is run by Dr. Riz and Maya, a husband and wife team who are passionate about nutrition. They are plant-based for health, for the animals, and for the planet.

Dr. Rizwan H. Bukhari is a vascular surgeon with over 20 years of experience. He now incorporates plant-based nutrition into his Patient Lifestyle Modification Plan. He also teaches about the relationship between lifestyle and common diseases.

Maya is an educator and plant-based advocate. She is certified in Plant-Based Nutrition through eCornell and in Dr. McDougall’s Dietary Therapy course for reversing common diseases. Maya is also the producer of the Plant-Based DFW Podcast Show.

Check out some of the amazing photos they took on the cruise:

It’s Robert Cheeke! He has been a vegan since age 15. He is a two-time natural bodybuilding champion. He offered functional fitness classes during the cruise. We enjoyed his talk “Simple Exercises and Nutrition Tips to Keep Your Body Toned and Give You More Energy Year-Round”. Robert discussed his own battles and how he has been able to stay healthy despite injuries. He offers such a warm and optimistic energy that is contagious. Oh and he loves to dance! ???? . .@robertcheeke @hhas_vegan_cruise @msccruisesofficial @dr_riz_bukhari @plantbaseddfw @veganbodybuildingandfitness #holisticholidayatsea #veganathlete #veganbodybuilding #eatplants #eatcarbs #plantbaseddiet #plantstrong #veganfood #vegancruise
