Vegetable power

March 28th, 2023

Vesanto Melina (at right with Brenda Davis), a Vancouver-based registered dietitian, has written numerous books on being vegetarian as well as books on veganism. The title she co-authored with Brenda Davis, Becoming Vegetarian (Macmillan 1994, Book Publishing Company 1995 and 2003, Wiley Canada 2003) has been published in eleven countries and in three languages. Now Melina has joined forces with Brenda Davis and Cory Davis to publish Plant Powered Protein (Healthy Living $29.95) that delves into the politics and fallacies surrounding plant-based protein. They argue that protein derived from plants is not only comparable to protein from animal products but is often superior. The authors target specific age groups, as well as athletes and pregnant women to offer recommendations for obtaining all the vital protein and nutrients their bodies require. Pantry suggestions, cooking tips and thirty recipes are included. 9781570674105
