Nutrition & the Vegetarian Diet

Have you decided to change your lifestyle and eat plant-based foods for your health, the environment, or ethical reasons?  The challenge is making sure you are getting adequate amounts of protein, calcium, and vitamins in your diet.  Our dietitians are experts at guiding you through this major lifestyle change.  With detailed individual counseling, our dietitians assist people in making appropriate changes to their diets while still conforming to taste and cultural preferences.

Dietitians can provide guidance on how to modify recipes to make them healthier, introduce you to new grains, beans, greens and more, and suggest easy preparations for healthy foods to help you take this significant step towards health.
