How To Avoid The Protein Panic When Going Vegan With Bailey Ruskus

core connections Sep 14, 2021

Are you vegan and looking for ways to get more protein in your diet?

You're not alone ladies. On today's episode, my friend Bailey Ruskus is going to tell you how to use whole foods to get more plant-based protein in your nutrition when going vegan. *Which becoming vegan was the last thing Bailey thought would happen!*

After spending her whole life dealing with endometriosis and chronic pain, she realized that her passion for being a professional chef and creating beautiful plates was the thing that was making her sick.

Guess what Beautiful: the irony is that food and nutrition was also the thing that helped her body heal.

Bailey hosts virtual cooking classes in her online membership and is coming out with a new book, Cook. Heal. Go Vegan!, to guide readers on how to make easy, nutrient-dense dishes while inviting purpose and intention into every meal. What she has to share today is straight MAGIC.

In the episode you’ll hear all about nutrition from a vegan perspective: 

  • What foods to start cutting out when going vegan
  • The dangers of pushing yourself and your body to the edge
  • Important nutrients to add to your diet
  • How to get plant-based protein in daily

As someone who isn't vegan, I had SOOO many takeaways from this conversation and I can't wait to try her cashew hemp milk from her book! Join in on the fun >>HERE<<.

Bailey and I want you to know that there are ways for every single person to heal from food. Believe that it IS possible because it is. So ladies, if you loved today's conversation we'd be honored to hear about your takeaways in a 5-star review on iTunes. We look forward to reading your review soon!
