Health and Nutrition

I believe in the depth of my heart that what we eat matters. A plant-based diet has been shown to reverse diabetes and heart disease and clear up many medical issue for the people who make the change. The following sites are one I visit regularly when I want to understand health, nutrition and food at a greater depth.

 
 
Dr. Gregor

Nutrition Facts.org

When I want to understand more about a food, a specific nutrient or a disease I start with Dr. Gregor’s NutritionFacts.org https://nutritionfacts.org/

There is no funding by large food or pharma. Funders are listed on his site. His videos and blogs come from science-based research. “Let’s put it to the test.” Dr. Gregor has written two books: How Not to Die and The How Not To Die Cookbook.

For instance, search for “What is the cause of Type 2 diabetes?

 

Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine

Another doctor I respect very much is Dr. Neal Bernard. He is the founder of the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine

If you think you need milk to get strong bones, think again. Eat your leafy greens and cruciferous veges! https://www.pcrm.org/good-nutrition/nutrition-information/health-concerns-about-dairy/calcium-and-strong-bones

 

Forks over knives

Forks Over Knives was the movie that changed my life. Now there is a website that can help you with loads of resources and recipes. https://www.forksoverknives.com/articles/

Meghan Telpner and the Academy of Culinary Nutrition

Meghan is the lead instructor and owner of the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, where I received my certification. She writes a weekly blog about health and nutrition. She has written two books: Undiet and The Undiet Cookbook. I recommend both of them to learn how to decrease environmental toxins in your life, and to increase deliciousness in your (mostly) plant-based journey.
