Dealing with doctors on a plant-based diet
A great article here written by a mother who only eats plants and her children who only eat plants, and her ongoing conversations with her doctor.
My favourite quotes from this article are:
“The only thing that consistently comes up is how great my blood work looks and how, after I delivered my son almost three years ago, I lost 10 extra pounds”.
“The doctor doesn’t even ask me about food anymore. Instead, she asks my son what he likes to eat. When he responds with spinach, tofu, broccoli, pasta, rice and beans, she smiles in disbelief! She says she never hears this from other kids his age”.
