Interview with Author Lierre Keith, The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice and Sustainability


Lierre Keith on the Nutrition Heretic Podcast This week we look back on some past episodes and ask, "Where’s the beef?" Actually we talk about meat and if it deserves the entire negative press it gets. And then, in an almost perfect segue, we welcome, author, warrior and challenger of dogmatic thinking, Lierre Keith.

Leirre is a former vegan who realized that her chosen path didn’t provide all the resources required for a healthy diet and life. Her remarkable journey from that point is an ongoing adventure showcasing her strength and courage. We discuss what you need to know about vegetarian and vegan diets, the shortcomings and the risks that are often quite taboo and generate the ire of those who follow such lifestyles.

We think this is one of our best and most provocative podcasts ever!

Find out more about Lierre on her website, Lierre Keith.

Lierre's first book, The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability is out now on Amazon.  Keep your eyes peeled as she's currently working on her second book which will be published next year.

Day 24 - How to Be a Vegetarian on the Challenge

Vegetarians will often wonder how to comply with the Challenge and still remain true to their vegetarianism. Even though the ideal Challenge foods have already been discussed in the previous days, I’ve created this video to more fully explain how to get the proper protein and fat you need to keep your body’s energy humming and systems working optimally. Watch the video to learn more.

Tonight, we had a nice dessert treat. Sauteed apples with cream. Simply core and slice apples to desired thinness. Melt butter in a frying pan and add apples when warm. Grate a pinch of fresh nutmeg over. Stir and cook until apples are just a bit translucent (or as much as you want, really). Stir to coat apples. No added sugar, just a little vanilla extract in the raw whipped cream. Nutmeg brought out the natural sugar in the apples. Better than pie and done in about 15 minutes.
