Sharon Palmer Book Signing! Last week, thousands of registered dietitians convened in Atlanta for the annual Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo held by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Meatless Mondays resident RD Diana Rice was in attendance and reports that the topic of plant-based eating was trendier than ever. The conference kicked off with an educational session on the role of plant protein in disease prevention by renowned diet and lifestyle researchers Dr. Frank Hu of Harvard and Dr. Penny Kris-Etherton of Penn State. Our good friend Sharon Palmer later moderated a session on the latest research on the value of vegetarian and vegan diets, where Dr. Joan Sabate of Loma Linda University and Virginia Messina, RD (author of Vegan for Her) were featured speakers. Chef Marcus Samuelsson and Diana Rice, RD     Plant-based eating was also a hot topic on the Expo floor. Sharon Palmer conducted a free signing of her book Plant Powered for Life at the booth of our friends at Tomato Wellness and Meatless Monday supporter Marcus Samuelsson made an appearance at the Canadian Lentils exhibit. Registered dietitians also snapped up samples of plant-based dishes such as vegetarian chili from JTM Foods and vegan breakfast sausage from our friends at Neat. It is extremely encouraging for us to observe the tremendous response that our line of innovative, all natural vegetarian foods received from registered dietitians and other professionals in the food and nutrition industry, said Phil Lapp, Neats co-founder and CEO.     Neat Foods! They sure know how to Meatless Monday!   And because you wont meet a crowd of professionals more enthusiast about fruit and vegetable consumption, dietitians flocked to the conferences selfie stations, where they could declare their love for plant foods to the world (or at least, to their Twitter followers). The post Eyes on Plant Protein at Nutrition Conference appeared first on Meatless Monday.
