Plant-Based Health with Dr.Garth Davis

After our fun, fictional, vegan musings of the magical world last week, the ChickPeeps take a more factual turn with a discussion on health as a vegan, and the common misconceptions society holds of plant-based nutrition. The brilliant Dr.Garth Davis, weight loss surgeon, author of Proteinaholic, and outspoken advocate for plant-based nutrition joins us (8.55 min in) for this episode to debunk the myths and explain to us the science of why our bodies function better without animal products. Also on this episode...

  • We're not in the food chain anymore.'
  • Is eating too many carbs on a vegan diet cause for concern?
  • 'A steak is not a protein'.
  • Can you call white meat and fish 'clean'?
