Learn More and Get The Facts

Once I was ready to learn more about plant based diets, I watched Forks Over Knives and What the HealthCowspiracy helped me understand more of the environmental impact of our current unsustainable food system.

 

You can easily find these films on iTunes, Amazon Prime, YouTube or Google Play.
Here are some other very wonderful and inspiring videos to watch. Transforming the way you view food may not happen all at once, but I’d be very surprised if you could watch these videos and not be moved to consider the possibility of your own improved health and longevity, on a whole plant food diet.

Brenda Davis, RD

Brenda Davis, RD is just fabulous.  Her book Becoming Vegan is outstanding as a reference.

How Not to Die by Michael Greger, MD

This is a very comprehensive review of the science behind our top fifteen causes of death, followed by a section describing exactly what to eat.   He has a cookbook by the same name. His handy Daily Dozen food guide, is also available as an App. I refer to this guide often.

His website, NutritionFacts.org is a tremendously valuable resource. Brenda Davis, RD has published Becoming Vegan and Becoming Raw, among other books. These are terrific references. There is a chapter on pregnancy and lactation in Becoming Vegan that I found incredibly helpful for my pregnant patients. Along with pediatrician Reshma Shaw, MD, MPH, Brenda Davis published Nourish: The Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families is a fabulous resource for creating healthy vegan families.
