If you think, “I’d love to be vegan but I don’t think I’ll get enough protein.” Or, “I can’t give up cheese. I really love it, plus I don’t know how else I would meet my calcium requirements,” then you will love our interview with Ginny Messina, author of Vegan for Her and co-author of Vegan for Life.
In Vegan for Her: The Women’s Guide to Being Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet, dietician Ginny Messina, with JL Fields, shows women of all ages how to meet their nutritional needs with an animal-free diet. There are many reasons to adopt a vegan lifestyle—but many people, especially women, worry that a vegan diet won’t meet all their nutritional needs. Is it possible to stop eating dairy and still get enough calcium to fight osteoporosis? Will too much soy increase the risk of breast cancer? Can plant-based foods provide enough nutrients to sustain both mother and baby during pregnancy and breastfeeding? We will address all of these questions and many, many more. Ginny is a wealth of information!
Geared towards new and veteran vegans alike, Vegan for Her teaches women how to make smart dietary choices to build a longer, healthier and compassionate life. Have questions?
