  • Are Vegetarians Less Healthy than Meat-Eaters?
    “Vegetarians Found to Have More Cancer, Allergies, and Mental Health Disorders.” That's the alarming headline from a website called Science 2.0 (which also declares vegetarianism to be a “fad diet.”) They are referring to new research in Austrian vegetarians published in the journal PLoS One. The study compared self-reported health among 1,320 (...more)

  • Keeping Vegan Diets Healthy and Fabulous
    I've eaten a lot of truly exceptional vegan meals in my life. But I have absolutely no trouble recalling the single best meal I ever had (truly the single best one!). Prepared in an ancient restaurant in a little town on the island of Sicily, it was a big bowl of chickpeas that had simmered [...] (...more)

  • Don't Think Twice About Going Vegan
    A number of readers have asked if I'd respond to the article Why You Should Think Twice About Vegetarian and Vegan Diets, by Chris Kresser. Kresser is a licensed acupuncturist who writes frequently about diet. And since I would never go around poking needles into people, I wish he would return the favor and stop [...] (...more)

  • Grains in Vegan Diets: No, They Won't Make You Fat or Sick
    With the exception of some raw foods vegans, almost all of the vegans I know eat grains. If any of the fear mongering around these foods has any basis, it's a wonder we're all still alive and that many of us are thriving. At the center of the anti-grain campaign is Dr. William Davis, author [...] (...more)

  • Potassium in Vegan Diets: Less Kale, More Beans?
    It's not surprising that vegetarians and vegans tend to have higher intakes of potassium compared to omnivores. One simple dietary change—replacing the meat in a recipe with any type of beans—can give potassium intake a healthy boost. It doesn't necessarily mean that we vegans always get enough, though. In fact, while it's far easier (...more)

  • Plant Protein: Why Vegan Diets Need Beans
    If you subscribe by email to this blog, you may have received a post about calcium and protein and bone health last week. I'm not sure why since that post was published last August. But it worked out to be okay that it popped up out of nowhere. It's actually a reasonable segue to this [...] (...more)

  • What Does a Vegan Dietitian Eat?
    I had the pleasure of being interviewed by The Laziest Vegans in the World about my favorite convenience foods this week. This fun website is “a tribute to vegan pre-packaged food.” I'm glad that these foods exist, especially for those who are reluctant to try veganism because they think it's too hard or that there [...] (...more)

  • Soy Isoflavones, Benefits of Beans, and Mediterranean Foods for Vegans
    The title for this post has a lot of stuff packed into it, but I wanted to share some articles I've been writing elsewhere about plant foods and health. Mostly, I've got beans on the brain these days. I gave a presentation on beans and health at last year's Sixth International Congress on Vegetarian Nutrition [...] (...more)

  • Never Too Late to Go Vegan: The Book!
    Back in June of last year, I shared news about my upcoming book Never Too Late to Go Vegan. I'm happy and excited to announce that the book is finished and shipping from booksellers in the next few weeks. My co-authors are Patti Breitman, a former literary agent and current vegan activist and educator, and [...] (...more)

  • Vegan, DASH, Mediterranean—Which Diet is Best?
    U.S. News recently published their report on the best diets for 2014. The ratings were based on factors like nutritional adequacy, ease of compliance, and effectiveness for weight control or managing chronic diseases. Not surprisingly, eating patterns like the DASH diet and a traditional Mediterranean diet scored high. These are two dietary patterns (...more)
