In this episode, Gemma shares her journey to veganism, what inspired her to make the change and what her and her family eat. She talks about climate change and the urgency of planetary health. We go into the main vitamins and minerals that we need to focus on incorporating into our diet, how to have a healthy pregnancy, and how to raise healthy plantbased children.
