  1. Hi Debbie, thank you so much for this information. What iron supplements do you recommend for people on plant-based diets? I am currently taking FeoSol recommended by my doctor, but I am not sure if it is plant-based. I appreciate your recommendation.

My passion for nutrition began when I took a college nutrition class. I have worked as a Clinical Dietitian, Director of Nutrition Services, and for several years as Mom. When my youngest left for college I decided to return to my passion of sharing the health benefits of eating vegetarian meals. I enjoy teaching nutrition, volunteering in my community, and working as the Web Editor for the Vegetarian Nutrition website.
