  • Yes, Vegans Can Climb Mt. Everest
    Last week, a vegan named Kuntal Joisher successfully reached the summit of Mt Everest and came home to post photos to his Instagram account. Chances are, you didn’t hear much, if anything, about him. No doubt, though, you heard about another vegan climber, one who died while attempting to climb the tallest mountain in the […] (...more)

  • Vegan Diets Are Safe for Children
    Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported about a preschool in Jersey City, NJ that offers only vegan food. The article kind of made me cringe. It made veganism look like a somewhat nutty, somewhat elitist diet that denies kids cupcakes at birthday parties. But at the very least, it didn’t question the safety of […] (...more)

  • Vegan Food for People Who Don’t Cook
    Recently, I had a taste of what it’s like to be a vegan who doesn’t cook. For what seems like the past decade or so, I’ve been living with a kitchen remodel. Cooking while my kitchen was torn apart was not really a problem. I have an electric frying pan, an Instant Pot, and an […] (...more)

  • Vegan Diets are Dangerous? Here is What the Research Really Says
    Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic suggest that vegans should know something about diet planning in order to make sure they are meeting nutrient needs. Their conclusions were published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. The paper doesn’t say anything that is particularly alarming, and, with a few exceptions, there isn’t much in (...more)

  • Vegan Diets and Irritable Bowel Syndrome: The FODMAP Approach
    One of the most frequent questions I get through this website is about the low-FODMAP diet. This popular approach to easing symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) eliminates (at least initially) many plant foods. It’s definitely a bit of a challenge for vegans, but may be worth it if you suffer from IBS.   The […] (...more)

  • New Vegan Nutrition Primer on Iron
    Iron deficiency anemia is a serious and common public health problem for people eating all different kinds of diets. While vegans don’t seem to develop anemia any more often than people who eat meat, we do have higher iron needs. It’s hard to know just how much higher those needs are for individual vegans, though, […] (...more)

  • Your Vegan New Year’s Diet: Don’t Forget the Protein
    It’s hard to resist the call of the New Year’s diet. There is something about the promise of new beginnings, especially after the season of indulgence. If your goals for 2016 include weight loss, please make sure your vegan diet includes enough protein-rich foods. I’m not suggesting that you need to eat a high-protein diet. […] (...more)

  • New Year, Same Old (Vegan) Me
    The promotional emails flooding my in box promise all kinds of tips and tricks for a “New Year, New You.” I had no idea that I was in such need of a total makeover. But these emails seem to assume that there is considerable room for improvement. And sure, I suppose there is. I could […] (...more)

  • Will a Vegetarian Diet Make You Depressed?
    The recent article in Women’s Health Magazine about the “scary mental health risks” associated with meatless diets has—not surprisingly—received lots of attention. People love to hear bad news about vegetarian and vegan diets, after all. Author Jill Waldbieser pulled the article together from the usual hodgepodge of questionable resources—in (...more)

  • Lettuce and Bacon and the Environment: Some Thoughts for Vegan Activists
      Is lettuce really worse for the environment than bacon? That’s what the latest headlines say, based on findings from new research at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Allegedly, lettuce produces more greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than unhealthy foods like bacon. The media have gleefully proclaimed, based on this study, that vegetarian (...more)
