Texas Firefighters Go Vegan

Veggie Fireman
Firemen are known for being big, brave and brawny.

But you won't find these firefighters grilling steaks or ribs on the barbeque.

Instead, you'll see them preparing beans, fresh vegetables and whole grain rice. That's because they're vegans and have given up all animal-based foods.

After one firefighter's cholesterol soared to 344, his team went vegan to support his effort to get his health under control.

"So I went to the doctor, came back and at 196 after 21 days. So i just thought, well shoot, that works," Rae said.
