            Vegan Nutrition

                                                Basic Course in Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition, by George L. Eisman, is a program, reviewed here:  I think this book should be essential reading for all dieticians and health professionals. The format of the book is simple (just word processed with clipart), but the research behind the book is extensive, current, and the information is clearly presented. Last night I was reading this book along with a 750-page college textbook on nutrition. I found "A Basic Course" to contain fewer words, while still being more informative. Quizzes at the end of each chapter help to reinforce the information. I intend to complete the book, take the proctored tests, and get the certificate.

I'm not vegetarian, by the way, but I'm VERY compelled by the research: enough to want to eat much more healthfully.

Reviewer:

 

Rosemary Amey (Toronto) - See all my reviews

I took the Vegedine course, which uses this material, a few years ago. Although I was initially skeptical about whether I would learn anything new, I was pleased to find that Eisman covers many topics to a far greater depth than I have seen in other vegetarian books.

The Basic Course in Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition will answer virtually any question you can think of on the subject. Not only is the course comprehensive, but Eisman has explained things in a readable and easy-to-understand way. Topics covered include carbs, fibre, fat, protein, vitamins, minerals, digestion and absorption, vegetarian foods, diet-related chronic disease, and vegetarianism throughout the life cycle. After completing the course, you will be able to respond to questions not only from family and friends,but even from (less informed) health professionals (informed health professionals will not question a balanced vegan diet).

As a registered dietician and practicing vegan, Eisman is eminently qualified to write this authoritative work, in an intelligent way without any of the flaky or sensationalistic overtones found in some other books. Definitely a worthwhile investment of your time and money!

FREE VEGAN EDUCATION

 

How to live, in order to bring forth the best possible future for the entire planet, and have this planet be an optimal example of life.

 

The following is information designed to fully educate vegans of all ages, with unbiased, but balanced information about every topic known. This information is free to read, or print, but must not be sold, because it is what people need to know to live.

 

Therefore, I would like to establish a WVO library of the best materials available, for borrowing, for those who can’t afford to pay to learn how to be healthy, sustainable, aware, responsible, and empowered. What does it take to start this sort of library, without infringing on other people’s copyrights?
