There is so much to learn in the Vegan world in regards to not only what to eat as a Vegan but Nutrition period. And I want to learn as much as I can. And because of this, I joined a couple Vegan Groups on Facebook to discuss everything VEGAN! 🙂
One lady, in the group, brought up this one author, in particular, in many conversations. She should have been working for her as much as she was promoting her books or at least getting a CHECK LOL But, she most definitely was not trying to promote her book for sales but for the amazing information a new Vegan can get from this author.
Virginia (Ginny) Messina, MPH, RD is a dietitian specializing in vegan diets. She is the co-author of two recent books on vegan nutrition: Vegan for Life and Vegan for Her. Basically this woman knows her STUFF! I have ordered two of her books on Amazon as well as a third from another author. Here are some small details about the books:
Vegan for Her, a blueprint for optimal health and wellness at any age, will show you how to: lower your risk for breast cancer and heart disease; manage conditions like arthritis and migraines; diminish PMs and cramps; build strong bones for life; enhance fertility; make an easy transition to a vegan diet; and incorporate principles of both fashion and compassion into your home and wardrobe.
“Registered dietitians and long-time vegans Jack Norris and Virginia Messina debunk some of the most persistent myths about vegan nutrition and provide essential information about getting enough calcium and protein, finding the best supplements, and understanding the “real deal” about soy. Covering everything from a six-step transition plan to meeting calorie and nutrient needs during pregnancy and breastfeeding, Vegan for Life is the guide for aspiring and veteran vegans alike, complete with an easy-to-use food chart, tasty substitutions, sample menus, and expansive resources.”
Vegan Cheat Sheet is by another author by the name of Amy Cramer and this is what Amazon says about this book:
“The Vegan Cheat Sheet is a take-anywhere resource that puts all the essential information about eating vegan at your fingertips, featuring:
