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.

Prioritizing compassion as a reason to embrace an animal-free lifestyle, longtime vegan dieticians Norris (cofounder of Vegan Outreach) and Messina (The Vegetarian Way) show readers how to evaluate medical research studies; calculate daily nutritional needs; stock a vegan pantry on a budget; and create daily menus. They slice through controversies surrounding, for example, convenience and soy foods; provide solutions to potential nutritional deficiencies (vitamin B12, calcium, iron, etc.); pinpoint particular needs of vegan children and teens, pregnant and breastfeeding women, athletes, older adults and those with allergies; and promote a plant-based diet to help prevent or heal obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Armed with this compendium and a vegan cookbook, novices will make an easy, healthy transition to meat, egg and dairy-free meals, while practicing vegans can use it as a guide to the best food choices.
