In December, dietitian Jack Norris sat down with Animal Voices to answer some of our listeners’ questions about vegan nutrition. But there were just too many questions for one interview, so we brought him back!
Are some nutrients harder to absorb from supplements or certain kinds of foods? Will taking EFAs make you smarter? Is fasting good for you? Does soy do weird things to sexual development? (And does cows’ milk?) Should everyone be on a low-fat diet? What are good foods for vegan kids? And what foods should you add to your diet right now, if you aren’t already eating them? (Some of them may surprise you!)
Norris has a gift for boiling down the latest research into easily digestible advice. If you’re interested in improving your own diet, or in becoming better at fielding others’ questions about vegan diets, don’t miss this interview!
