The New Becoming Vegetarian

By Brenda Davis, R.D. & Vesanto Melina, M.S., R.D.
Discontinued

The New Becoming Vegan By Brenda Davis, R.D. & Vesanto Melina, M.S., R.D.

This is a fantastic resource for anyone contemplating "going vegetarian" or vegan. All the dietary issues are explored and addressed in an unbiased, helpful way, so you can make good decisions and attain optimum health through diet based decisions. I'm sure even seasoned vegetarians will learn something from the many dozens of tables and drawings that illuminate significant nutritional issues. Along the way many myths are debunked, like that it is hard for vegetarians to get enough iron or that animal protein is superior to plant protein for human health.
     Written by two expert dietitians, they cover all the essentials to healthful vegetarianism and even give you enough recipes to get you started. They also give advice on how to stay centered and loving in the face of opposition from well intended and sometimes heavy handed meat eaters. There is no better book when starting down the path to a meatless diet than The New Becoming Vegetarian.

     The table of contents appears below the buy button.

Brenda Davis, RD, is a nutrition consultant in private practice and the Vegan Advocacy Director of the CARE campaign. She is a past chair of the Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group of the American Dietetic Association.
