This is a growing collection of websites, blogs, authors, books and podcasts that have inspired my journey in sustainability, veganism and health. I don’t necessarily agree with everything all of them say, but have found them all inspiring to varying degrees.

Organisations & Online Resources on Nutrition

Viva! Health A major non-profit resource on vegan health and nutrition for health professionals and the public.

If you eat a whole, plant-based diet that is diverse, colourful and based on fresh, seasonal ingredients you don’t need to worry so much about individual nutrients, as your body will pick most* of what it needs from the abundant natural sources. If you do want to read up any specific details however, here is a great A to Z of nutrients database.

*) You may want to take supplements for vitamins B12 and D, to be on the safe side.

Provegan Foundation A non-profit resource base on vegan nutrition run by German medical doctor Dr Ernst Walter Henrich.

SHARAN India A group of doctors and nutrition professionals, started by MD Dr Nandita Shah who helps people reverse chronic diseases through diet and has been a great inspiration in my own journey to great health.
