Venus Williams recently shared a photo of herself all smiles on her Instagram page. The tennis champion looked fabulous in a tight-fitting blue outfit while standing in a kitchen.
Williams recently shared a photo of herself in a promo shoot for her vegan protein shake. Along with fun stickers and doodles, the Grand Slam champion clearly had reason to celebrate.
The photo was taken in a kitchen setting, with a stove and kettle in the blurred background, as well as a potted plant and a chopping board hanging on the white walls behind Williams.
Williams rocked a sky blue top that showed off her toned arms and slim waist. She wore it with a pair of navy tights with a sky blue panel across the front. The athlete's hair was styled beautifully and showed off one of her hoop earrings.
Williams was pictured standing with an excited facial expression, flashing a million-dollar smile. In one hand, she held a small carton of her product, Happy Viking's plant protein shake. Her other hand was balled into a celebratory fist.
The picture also came with a big round sticker exclaiming the good news echoed in her caption, announcing that the product had sold out in 24 hours, and the star was thankful for the support.
Congratulatory messages filled Williams' comment section as fans applauded her for her ambition and for releasing a healthy product that also tastes great.
One fan commented, "Man I always admire that lady right there wow," while another added, "Venus has the midas touch.Congrats." A third fan wrote, "Congratulations that's because you are the spokesperson. Keep winning Queen."
Williams was inspired to start her plant-based food company because of her own experience. The seven-time Grand Slam champion was diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome at 31 years old, and doctors suggested adopting a vegan diet.
While she found a strictly raw vegan diet unsustainable in the long term, she found a way to make it work by adding potatoes and lentils to give her the right amount of calories needed for an athlete.
Williams told Essence that the Happy Viking products were great for digestion and an immune system boost, adding that the protein shakes also gave her great skin and are "actually a drink for your mind and your body.”
