Today Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian welcomes two authors from The Experiment publishing company.  First, Laura will chat with Sharon Palmer, R.D., who is a Freelance Writer and author of The Plant-Powered Diet, named one of the best diet books for the New Year!  We’ll talk about her tips for dining out on a plant-based diet. Then, we'll talk with Reuben Proctor, author of Veganissimo A to Z.  Sharon Palmer: Sharon received her Bachelor of Sciences Degree with Honors from Loma Linda University, California. She enjoyed a diverse 16-year dietetics career with experiences as a clinical and wellness dietitian, food and nutrition services director, and consultant dietitian. Reuben Proctor: Reuben is co-author of Veganissimo  - A to Z. Reuben has been vegan since 2000 and has done translation, consulting, and administrative work for vegan companies and animal rights organizations since 2004. What does Veganissimo mean? It’s a new word to describe someone who is vegan to the highest possible standard. Animal-derived components can sneak into dietary supplements, beer and wine, and electronics. Veganissimo A to Z, helps the aspiring veganissimo to steer clear of those products and reduce their “animal footprint.”
