  • The FODMAP Diet for Vegans: An Update
    FODMAPs are carbohydrates that are fermented in the gut and can cause painful gas and bloating for people who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). I shared resources for vegans with IBS in a blog post in 2016, which gives a more thorough explanation of a low-FODMAP diet. The diet is a challenge for vegans since [...] (...more)

  • The New and Improved Vegan Health Website
    If you’ve followed this blog for any period of time, you know that I’m a big fan of the website In fact, I consider it to be the most reliable and comprehensive source of information about vegan diets on the web – or anywhere for that matter. The site was founded in 2003 by [...] (...more)

  • Fortified Soy Milk is Healthy Alternative to Cow’s Milk for Toddlers
    A joint news release from Dietitians of Canada and the Canadian Paediatric Society urges parents to be careful in their selection of milks for young children. Specifically, they are concerned about the low protein and mineral content of unfortified plant milks. I agree with most of what they say. Unfortified plant milks should not be [...] (...more)

  • Vegetarian Diets and Depression
    A couple of months ago, a study on depression among male vegetarians made the social media rounds (1).  I know from the flurry of emails I received that many vegans were alarmed by the findings. As is often the case, though, the headlines were far more dramatic than the actual findings. The subjects were a [...] (...more)

  • Plant Milks and Iodine: Recommendations for Vegans
    The growth of the plant milk market is nothing short of amazing. Given the variety of options, it’s easier than ever to switch out cow’s milk for a more compassionate alternative. But as these milks become more popular it’s natural (and important) to ask questions about how replacing cow’s milk with plant milks might affect [...] (...more)

  • A Science-Based (and Vegan) Perspective on the New “What the Health” Documentary
    I wasn’t really planning on writing a review of the new vegan documentary What the Health. I watched it; I fumed; I complained on my personal Facebook page and more directly to my science-based colleagues. And then I figured I’d move on. The thing that changed my mind is that the film is getting considerable [...] (...more)

  • Brand New Website! Plus a Nutrition Primer on Vegan Bone Health
    If you’re reading this on the web, you’ll see that TheVeganRD has received a long overdue redesign. A big thank you to web designer Chad Smalley (who also happens to be a bassist and singer with Houston band Blaggards and is a vegan.

  • Cow’s Milk, Plant Milks and Growth in Children
    New research from Canada found that kids who don’t drink cow’s milk are shorter than those who do. It’s a finding that makes for some sensational headlines but the study itself is not all that exciting. This was a cross-sectional study of 5,034 children between the ages of two and six years (average age was [...] (...more)

  • Everything You Need to Know about Vegan Nutrition (Plus a Few Words about Vitamin B12)
    My friend Erik Marcus recently invited me to write an introduction to vegan nutrition for his website In his weekly newsletter, Erik wrote about why he feels so strongly about providing solid nutrition information for vegans. One of the most important and most neglected topics in all of veganism is our high recidivism rate—the [...] (...more)

  • Even Vegans Die: A Book for Animal Advocates
    Guilt and shame are common reactions for vegans who get sick. Our diet is all too often portrayed as a way to get skinny and stay bulletproof against disease. Vegans who don’t reap those outcomes sometimes wonder if there is a place for them in our community of animal advocates. These kinds of issues have [...] (...more)
