K--I will send you info by private message tomorrow!
Justin--I do a variety of counseling from vegan, sports, diabetic, organ transplant and so on...you name it, and I've had experience with it. So I wouldn't say I have one specialty. I am very passionate about vegetarian/vegan lifestyles as I have been on this path for many years. I can counsel on the macrobiotic diet, but I don't find it's realistic for everyone. I do not sell supplement and, in fact, advocate for obtaining what we need with good nutrition and alternative therapies before taking supplements. Take care --Sara
you have my dream job! i'm going to studying nutrition in school as well and really hope to specialize in vegetarian/vegan, gluten-free and allergy intolerance diets. I would love to get more information from you! = )
I sent you private messages with some information.
Manya: The nutritional quality of your vegetables depends on several factors. If you live in an area where fresh produce doesn't have to travel far, then the nutritional quality is fine so long as you eat it within a week (the nutritional quality does decrease with time). Washing ahead of time is fine, but I would save the cutting for right before cooking. More surface area exposed means more nutrient loss (this is true for cooking too so don't cut veggies too small, steamed retains the most nutrients as well). Frozen vegetables are a great option in terms of nutritional quality (although often lacking in taste!!) because most veggies are frozen quickly (which helps to retain nutrients). Hope this helps! --Sara
