Today on her blog, Sharon Palmer, RD is running An Interview with Jack Norris, co-founder of Vegan Outreach.
Sharon is the author of the popular and highly acclaimed book, The Plant-Powered Diet, and I was honored to be interviewed by her!
On Thursday, I did a 20-minute radio interview with Janine Bandcroft of Winds of Change radio program out of Victoria, BC.
We covered the basics of vegan nutrition.
(Apologies to Matt Ball, co-founder of Vegan Outreach – I refer to you as “my friend” and not by name.)
The U.K.’s Vegan Views just printed an interview that Ginny and I did with Paul Appleby:
Paul is the lead author and statistician of many published studies on vegetarian diets and I was honored that he wanted to interview us.
If you’d like to hear an interview with me on Our Hen House about the ex-vegan phenomena, please click here.
I would like to thank Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan for having me on to discuss this important topic that is not often addressed by vegan advocates.
On January 4th, I posted Part 1 of my interview with Erin O’Sullivan of Animal Voices podcast:
Part 2 is now available:
Of the interviews I’ve done, these are my two favorite because we covered so many things other than the 10 nutrients vegans need to be aware of and vegetarian disease rate statistics. Erin’s questions were great! I look forward to her coming up with another batch some time.
I have a few tidbits:
1. I recently did an interview with Animal Voices:
This was different than my typical interview as the host, Erin Sullivan, asked a lot of interesting questions that I don’t normally get, but that I think many vegans are wondering about. We weren’t able to cover everything, so there will be a Part 2.
2. Please share this blog!
I was talking to a vegan advocate and supporter of this blog and we were trying to figure out how to get the information about staying healthy out to more vegans. The best thing we came up with is just for vegans who know about it, to share it with others. I know that some people might be hesitant to share my information because it can make a vegan diet seem hard, but here is an example of where it has paid off which I received just today:
“I directly credit my final willingness to make that leap [to becoming vegan] to your nutritional research presentation, especially as veganism applies to athletes. That information, presented so honestly, specifically, and with no misleading window-dressing or skewing of facts, is what gave me the confidence to try it out and we are thriving!”
It is important that vegans make sure they get enough calcium, vitamin B12, and iodine so that down the road, they don’t have an irreversible health problem. This doesn’t only help them, but it will prevent them from going on to tell everyone how unhealthy a vegan diet made them. In addition to sharing this blog, sharing the nutrition recommendations for vegans at VeganHealth.org can also help vegans who might otherwise have no idea about such things.
3. My favorite vegan dietitian, Ginny Messina, has some Easy Resolutions for a Healthy Vegan New Year that are worth checking out!
Happy new year, everyone!
You have to get up pretty darn early to beat Ginny to the punch!
Over at TheVeganRD.com, she is promoting her latest podcast interview (which I look forward to listening to today).
Well, it just so happens that I also have a newly released podcast interview that I did with Sentients Radio (link).
In it, host Sarah Downs and I discuss some of the pitfalls people might encounter when becoming vegan and we also spend a decent amount of time discussing whether the issue of vitamin B12 makes the vegan diet unnatural. Too much time, some might think.
