“Health professionals need to be more educated about plant-based eating” - Despina Marselou, dietitian at Feed Your Immunity
This week, Holly and Molly chat about the upcoming Animal Rebellion march in London and their feelings about activism, and the news that a pro cyclist improved his iron levels by 77% when trialling a plant-based diet.
They also review vegan burgers and sausages from Beyond Meat and a new plant-based meat range from Dopsu for those late summer BBQs. They round off by discussing difficulties with non-vegan kids and share tips for feeling full for longer on a plant-based diet.
Our must-listen interview this week is with Despina Marselou, a dietitian and nutritionist who specialises in clinical nutrition and immunology.
She cured her own chronic illness with a whole food plant-based diet and now spends her life helping others do the same.
She talks about the importance of gut health, shares tips for switching slowly and discusses how a plant-based diet can help autoimmune disease, long Covid, IBS and many other chronic illnesses.
