    Is plant-based meat as healthy as animal-based meat with Christopher Gardner, PhD

    Is plant-based meat as healthy as animal-based meat with Christopher Gardner, PhD

    In Episode 167 I sit down with Stanford Professor Christopher Gardner to chat about his recent SWAP-MEAT trial that compared plant-based meat with animal-based meat.

    If you're wondering how healthy plant-based burgers and sausages are, relative to their organic animal-based counterparts (yes he compared against organic animal products) then I am sure you will find this episode interesting and quite thought provoking.

    We also touch on another study that compared the nutrient makeup of plant-based meat to animal-based meat.

    ​Hope you enjoy it.

This podcast is a golden egg!

I am absolutely obsessed with this podcast. Simon talks with so many incredibly knowledgeable people and professionals. I went vegan this past spring and this podcast has helped me understand so much more about going plant based and it’s benefits. Even with that being said there is so much more that this podcast covers. It is a must listen to expand your knowledge.

Amazing!!!

The Plant Proof podcast is so positive and evidence-based. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the episodes, have learned so much, and been so inspired by the fabulous people who have shared their wisdom. My partner and I are plant based now and we feel amazing! Thank you Simon!
