Vegan Nutrition Q&A with Registered Dietitian, Virginia Messina

“A vegan diet is an effective and meaningful way to put your beliefs into practice,” say Virginia Messina and Jack Norris, authors of Vegan for life: Everything you need to know to be Healthy and fit on a Plant-Based Diet. But putting your beliefs into practice isn’t always easy with so many myths circulating about protein, iron, calcium, omega’s and B12. So for this week’s show we asked you to write in and share your vegan diet related questions. To answer your questions, we are joined by Virginia Messina, a registered dietitian and public health nutritionist specializing in vegan nutrition. All of the questions discussed in this interview along with information on everything from the Vegan Food Guide, raising vegan children, vegan diets for people over fifty, sports nutrition, managing wieght, heart disease and diabetes, as well as so much more can all be found in the book, Vegan for Life.
