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.
