Plant-Powered Protein for People and the Planet – Zoom


Choosing plant-protein foods over animal proteins provides powerful health advantages and can have a significant effect on climate change (greenhouse gas emissions, water use and pollution, land use and acidification). Dynamic and lively registered dietician and 30-year vegan, Vesanto Melina, will share her knowledge and answer many of your most pressing questions about protein from plants:

Do vegans and vegetarians get enough protein?
If we adopt a plant-based diet, do we need to carefully combine beans and grains?
Can top athletes compete successfully when their diets include no animal products?
Are plant-exclusive diets suitable for every stage of the life cycle?
Can seniors avoid sarcopenia while eating only plants?
What are the environmental impacts of going plant-based?

Attendees will learn to make an easy tofu recipe.
