Some great basic nutrition information, however, working as a nurse in nutrition myself, I have seen first hand that vegetarians and vegans can get the required protein, iron, and b12 if eating a rich whole foods diet. Supplementation is not always the only option. Loved the 'how to approach' information for patients unwilling to change and the extra information on mental health and nutrition!
