The Truth About Getting Enough Protein

Hi! I'm


I'm a Certified Health Coach, longtime blogger, and host of Elizabeth Eats on YouTube. In addition to writing recipes (I love to eat!), I'm a strong believer that life is too short to settle for anything less than living your best life.

The Truth About Getting Enough Protein, Calcium, B-Vitamins & Nutrients (Podcast Interview)

A few months ago I had the pleasure of being one of the guest teachers & speaker in the Food Matters 10-Day Plant-Based Challenge, and I’m excited to tell you that Food Matters just made the interview public on their new podcast!

While I’m not 100% vegan and don’t label my eating habits, if you’ve spent any time on my blog you know that I love vegan recipes and believe that we can all benefit from more plant-based food.

James & I cover a TON of information in this episode, ranging from the truths about getting enough protein & calcium, to the best sources of other vitamins and minerals, to whether or not you need to count micro- and macronutrients. We also dispel common nutrition myths, discuss how our genealogy can affect how we assimilate food, and how to enjoy more plant-based foods.

In this interview with James & Elizabeth you will discover:

  • Importance of calcium, protein, B12, iron, folate – and the foods rich in them
  • High-quality supplements and where to find them
  • How eating real food keeps the vitamins working together in our bodies
  • How eating real food gives your body all that it needs
  • How to make better choices when buying pre-made food
  • Elizabeth’s take on whether or not soy is healthy
  • Genealogy and how that affects our individual diets
  • Myth Busters and how ads from large corporations have told us what to believe
  • How to set up your kitchen well and budget conscious to eat more whole foods
  • Making plant-based, fun recipes, and her go-to recipes
