Podcast: Episode 35 with Karla Dumas RD

I had the pleasure of chatting with the registered dietitian for the American Humane Society, Karla Dumas. She is part of a unique program that the Humane Society has launched to educate and initiate institutions on developing Meatless Monday and Lean Green Days. They have developed a host of roll out materials and ideas to get programs the support they need to reduce their meat consumption and promote plant based healthy nutrition. She has combined her love of animals and plant based nutrition to start these programs in hospitals, county schools and universities. American University in Washington, D.C. has developed a strong plant based food service promoting animal awareness and healthy eating as one such examples. Did you know that Meatless Monday first appeared during World War I? This was seen as an act of patriotism and conservation of resources. If you have not tried being plant based yet, how about starting with Meatless Monday. Let me know if you are new to this. Send me questions or comments to Write me a great iTunes review if you enjoy this podcast. Thank you for listening.
