Presented for Vegstock 2015:

Vegan Nutrition Simplified---Part 1 - Power Through People Stage, Glasstown Plaza
This is the first of two parts. 90% of vegan nutrition really comes down to replacing protein and calcium sources. The other components of healthy eating (starches, fruits and vegetables) do not change. This first talk reviews protein needs and sources, and protein powders are not involved!

Vegan Nutrition Simplified---Part 2 - Power Through People Stage, Glasstown Plaza
The second of two parts. Replacing calcium sources is an important part of the transition to a vegan diet. This talk reviews calcium needs and sources, and how US recommendations for calcium intake are exaggerated and misleading.

Mark spoke at the Power Through People Stage in the Glasstown Plaza at 85 North High Street, Millville NJ 08332 for Vegstock 2015.
