About Plant Powered You
About Christine Milmine, RDN - a Vegan/
I’m the writer behind Plant Powered You a resource to help you learn about plant based nutrition so you can confidently practice your values as a vegan.
I’m also the host behind the Plant Powered You Podcast, where I speak with fellow dietitians who are also vegan!
Whether you have been vegan for a while or simply curious, you’ve found the resource!
As for me, I am a plant powered Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) who has worked in clinical and community settings as a dietitian.
I am also a wife, mom of two intelligent girls, a runner, new yoga lover, not so new chocolate lover, and ethical vegan who was raised eating meat and loads of dairy.
My journey to veganism took a long time!
It’s a story with many unexpected twists and turns. If you are curious about how I made the transition to the vegan diet part, check out the details in this post.
And if you want to tell me your story, or send me that vegan recipe you can’t get enough of, I’d love to hear from ya! You can connect with me over here.
