When "Vegan" is not Enough by Jeff Novick, RD

Last night I had a great class with a group from the Bridge Recovery Center. One lady asked what the difference was between vegan, vegetarian, and plant based diets. Great question Lisa! I have always avoided using the words "vegan" or "vegetarian" because they don't mean healthy. Jeff Novick RD addresses this "trap" that many fall in so well. Please take the time to read this post and especially the comment at the bottom posted by a man who was eating a "vegan" diet and almost had his 2nd coronary event.

Things are looking up!

I taught a class last night for my daughters Relief Society (my church women's organization) and am so excited and impressed by their knowledge of plant based nutrition! All in one night I heard "I'm vegan," "my mother is vegan," "my husband is vegan and finished the Iron Man," and two ladies who asked me if I knew of Dr. Fuhrman. And there were so many others who seemed very familiar with the things I was talking about.
20 years ago I felt alone in this journey. Today I am so excited that there are so many others wanting to take control of their health.
A big thank you to my daughter Crystal for arranging this event and for those 30 or so women who took time out of their busy lives to come learn. I wish I had some pictures to share. Next time!
