NBSV 093: Author + 30-year vegan Peggy Brusseau on The 12 Vegan Food Groups, the 80/20 rule and more


Vegan author Peggy Brusseau

Peggy Brusseau is a food writer, cook, and committed vegan of more than 30 years. Peggy has written or co-written 24 books on food and health. Her most recent book, The Contented Vegan, addresses many key points about veganism: transitioning to veg life, living in a household where not all family members are vegan, nutrition for infants and children, the age-old where do I get my protein? question, and more. Heard of The Twelve Vegan Food Groups? After this discussion with Peggy, you'll be able to answer that question.

Important topics and points you don't want to miss:

>> The (gentle) rule that helps you ease into a plant-based way of eating

>> Let Food Be Your Medicine: the four cornerstones of good health in one sentence, and how to put them into practice


>> How to build a healthy plant-based diet using The Twelve Vegan Food Groups
