A Guide to Vegan Nutrition

Many committed vegans, as well as those new to a plant-based diet, struggle to understand the nutritional aspects of veganism and how to ensure a healthy diet. This thorough and authoritative book draws on current research to present a wealth of useful and fascinating information on vegan nutrition, all in a concise and readable style. It covers all major topics including food groups, digestion and absorption, vitamins, minerals, how to prevent diet-related diseases, risks and benefits of a vegan diet, and descriptions of healthy vegan diets for all stages of life. Based on the first accredited college course in the US, this is a definitive reference guide for both long-term vegans and anyone who wants to transition (or help a child or partner transition) to a healthy plant-based diet.
