NutritionFacts.org: Have skeptics in your life? Tired of people bombarding you with arguments about calcium and protein and expecting you to be able to cite specific research supporting your plant-based diet? No problem. Dr. Michael Greger M.D. has a website filled with short video clips offering summaries of the latest research on nutrition. Every video is intelligent, cites specific studies, and is explained in a way that non-scientists (like ye old history major here) can understand. Watch some of his videos on B-12 or let him explain to skeptics why dairy is NOT good for their health. I could watch his videos all day, because they’re engaging, research-backed, and fascinating.
No Meat Athlete: I love Matt Frazier’s guide to transitioning to more plant-based eating. It’s easy to read, easy to understand, and has great information about why eating plants is the best thing a runner can do for their bodies. His recipes aren’t fussy, and he gives great information about how to fuel with whole foods and plant-based nutrition while you’re on the run. I have a No Meat Athlete shirt I like to race in, and I even got to meet him after the Heartbreak Hill Half Marathon in June! His website is a great resource, but I absolutely recommend buying his book also. Great information about running as well as plant-based nutrition.
Bonzai Aphrodite has a wonderful post on When Vegans Get Sick, worth reading.
