Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition

Vegetarians and vegans may have special questions and concerns regarding nutrition. If you are a vegetarian or vegan or the parent of a vegetarian or vegan child/teen, you may wonder if you or your child gets enough protein, or amounts of important nutrients like calcium or iron.

Get answers to these important questions with a nutrition counseling session at Your Nutrition Design. Learn how to maximize protein intake with a variety of plant-proteins and what foods are good sources of minerals like calcium and iron. You’ll get important information on what nutrients may be missing from your nutrition plan, since some nutrients are only available in animal foods. Your nutritionist, Kimberly Mathai, RD, RDN, CDE will explain how to supplement for those “missing” nutrients, with products that suit both vegans and vegetarians.
