Plant-based Nutrition counseling
Are you interested in transitioning to a plant-based diet?
Or are you already vegetarian or vegan and looking for some support?
People are choosing a plant-based diet for several reasons, including health, environmental concerns, and ethics. Not to mention, plant-based eating can be creative, budget friendly, and delicious!
As a long-time vegan myself, I remember what it was like navigating a shift to a new way of eating. Although I was committed to my decision, learning to read labels for hidden ingredients, making sure I covered my nutrition needs, dealing with naysayers, and teaching myself new ways of cooking and baking took time, trial and error, and admittedly, some frustration.
I want to help make the process as smooth and frustration-free as possible for you!
Do you have questions like:
· Where will I get my protein?
· Should I take any supplements?
· How do I cook with tofu so it tastes GOOD?
· What can I eat at restaurants and social events?
· How do I choose the best plant-based milk?
· Should I eat or avoid soy?
· How can I manage a health condition with a plant-based diet?
· Is it healthy for my kids to be plant-based?
· What do I do if my family isn’t on board?
· How do I replace animal products in cooking and baking?
· How do I talk to my skeptical doctor about my diet change?
Let me help answer your questions and empower you to feel confident in the kitchen and beyond!
What’s the difference between plant-based and vegan? Aren’t they the same?
While the two terms are often used interchangeably, there are nuances. A plant-based diet can mean anything from still consuming some animal products, but centering meals on plants, to eating exclusively plant-based foods.
Veganism goes beyond diet and is based on ethics. Vegans eat a 100% plant-based diet and aim to avoid use of household products and cosmetics that are made with animal-based ingredients or have been tested on animals and don’t wear clothing made from animal skin or fur.
Do I have to go completely plant-based/vegan if I work with you?
Nope. That’s 100% up to you. No pressure or judgment from me, promise.
Will I lose weight on a plant-based diet?
While that happens for some people, that’s not the focus of our work together. We will focus more on getting a variety of foods, feeling satisfied, and getting all the nutrients necessary to live a healthy plant-based life!
Can you help me manage or reverse high blood pressure, high cholesterol, blood sugar issues, etc. with a plant-based diet?
