Eating a vegan diet is not necessarily healthy. More so than in conventional diets, balance is crucial. In this talk we examine fundamentals of balance and provide the tools for us to ensure that we are not only eating from a vast range of delicious and healthy foods, but also keeping ourselves healthy, fit and trim. We will also examine principles that enable us to choose wisely from the bewildering range of vegan food products available on the market.
