“I’ve struggled with the vegan lifestyle because I really don’t think I knew how to eat a well rounded diet. Because I run twelve miles a week and lift weights I need to eat a balanced diet. There are so many wonderful vegan cookbooks out there…I’ve bought so many!…but I don’t know how to plan a day’s worth of food. Thank you for being a great teacher. I’m getting a hang of what I should be eating.”

Written By A Holistic Nutritionist
As a vegan, I get asked a lot of questions. Usually, one of the first questions I’m asked is how I get protein, since meat is considered by many to be the ideal protein source – and some think of it as the only protein source.
As a nutritionist, I know exactly how it works, and I want you to have the answers, too. I’m also writing for vegetarians and meat eaters, since focusing more on the plant side of the plate is always a good thing, and you might be curious about how your vegan friends can be so healthy without meat.
