Listen on Google Play Music




Welcome to the first installment of the new Plant Based Parenting Series! It’s been a long time coming and Aaron is really excited to share this with all of you.

On todays show, Aaron walks you through the current scientific consensus on strict plant-based pregnancies, some important literature on omnivorous pregnancies, what is currently recommended for vegans and vegetarians in terms of important nutrients, supplementation and weight gain and finally an interview with his wife Allison about her current and former pregnancy experience from conception to birth.
Thank you all for listening. We hope you really enjoy the first episode and please let us know what you thought by shooting an email to Aaron has interviews lined up with some prominent pediatricians and looks forward to getting some parents on the show as well to talk about their experience raising plant-based kids.
