Deep Dive into Plant Based Protein (and debunking some myths along the way)

July 12, 2023 / Blog, Podcast, Seeking Voices: Exploring the Science of Health and Healing / By Dr. Monica Aggarwal
I had a great time speaking with Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina. They are fabulous dietitians who are very well known in the nutrition field. They took me on a deep dive into the world of protein. We discussed a number of topics such as plant-based vs animal proteins, protein needs for children/seniors/athletes, and we knocked over a few myths along the way. All this info is in their new book, “Plant Powered Protein“, and well worth picking up.

“We joke today that there are three things that plant-based eaters must face – death, taxes, and the dreaded question, “Where Do You Get Your Protein?!”
Well, today, we tackle the ever-popular topic of protein with two of the authors of a recent book, Plant Powered Protein.
Vesanto Melina and Cory Davis dispel the myths and misconceptions about plant-based protein – and – (and this is the part we love) make the science understandable and digestible.

Let’s put to rest that you can’t get enough protein at various stages of life including pregnancy, infancy, childhood, adulthood, your senior years, and even for the athlete population.
You can get plenty of protein and this book shows you how with easy-to-follow protein recommendations and recipes so that you never feel deprived or deficient.” From PlantPodcast.com
