(US/or) Going Vegan: 'Vegan for Her' is an essential guide to plant-based eating for women
- [OregonLive.com - opinion]
From time to time, I get calls from readers who have questions about
vegan nutrition. While I know enough to answer a handful of basic
questions -- "Where do you get your protein?" is a common query -- I'm
a cooking guy, not a nutritionist.
For the tougher questions, I turn to the website of Virginia Messina,
a registered dietitian who is an authority on the benefits and
potential pitfalls of plant-based eating.
One area where there's a lot of confusion for women is how a
plant-based diet affects the risk of breast cancer, weight loss, aging
and fertility. That's why Messina has just published "Vegan for Her:
The Woman's Guide to Being Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet."
It's a comprehensive guide that tackles everything from the basics of
transitioning to and following a plant-based diet, to how it can be
used to manage complex health problems such as osteoporosis, diabetes
and heart disease.
But "Vegan for Her" is more than just a nutrition guide. To complement
Messina's guidance, there are more than 50 easy recipes from lifestyle
coach and seriously good cook JL Fields.
I caught up with Messina and Fields when they were in town recently to
talk about the new book and the vegan lifestyle.
