THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE‘s March 2015 Virtual Book Tour Celebrates Registered Dietitians and National Nutrition Month

Friday, February 20, 2015


“Overall, nearly 90 percent of the U.S. population does not meet daily vegetable intake recommendations.”
—Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee

Great new book for a healthy 2015:  THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE.”
—Ellie Krieger, RDN, long-time TV show host, bestselling author and columnist

“[THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE is] a great book…Fantastic information.”
—Brigid Titgemeier, MS, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) at the Cleveland Clinic

On the heels of yesterday’s release of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Report (and not a moment too soon!), we’re in the midst of planning THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE‘s next cross-country Virtual Book Tour (VBT), which was inspired by National Nutrition Month (March 2015) and National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day (March 11, 2015).

Many of THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE‘s greatest champions have turned out to be food-loving RDs and RDNs* — who love how the book celebrates the unity of healthfulness AND deliciousness, instead of one over the other.  So we thought we’d turn around and give the love right back to them by visiting some of their websites and blogs during the weeks leading up to and during the month of March.

You’re about to meet some distinguished and fascinating nutritionists — and we look forward to helping you get to know this impressive group in the weeks ahead.  While they range from omnivores to vegans in terms of their own diets, we expect that in a country where 90% of us don’t eat enough vegetables they’ll be in 100% agreement that more of us shouldand that it can be delicious!

You can follow the Virtual Book Tour’s calendar-in-progress (in the green box, below) as it continues to take shape throughout the coming month.

*BTW, an RD is a Registered Dietitian — and an RDN is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.  Both terms are used interchangeably these days, as each professional prefers.  Note:  While all dietitians are nutritionists, not all nutritionists are RDs or RDNs!
