Kathy Freston Offers Nutrition Knowledge on The Talk

On Monday, best-selling vegan author Kathy Freston offered healthy-eating advice on CBS' The Talk.

Earlier this week, Veganist author Kathy Freston appeared on the popular CBS daytime show The Talk to discuss her new book, The Lean, and share tips for plant-based eating with hosts Sara Gilbert and Julie Chen. In addition to extolling the reason for choosing non-dairy milks and cheeses, Freston recommended eating a satisfying breakfast rich in fiber and loading up on antioxidant-rich foods. Quick to emphasize the ease of switching to vegan products, Freston tells viewers, “You can have all the stuff that you grew up loving … I love pizza and burgers and ribs and all that stuff, but you want to just make healthier versions of [these] things.” The Lean hit bookshelves nationwide on March 27.
