#413: Plant Based Diets and the Cancer Victory Garden - [Laura Rutledge] In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Laura Rutledge, a professional nutritionist and dietician with over 25 years of experience about how consuming a plant based diet can help you improve your health.

Laura is going to teach us the benefits of consuming a plant based diet, and why that does not necessarily mean being a vegetarian or vegan.

She'll fill us in on how teaching patients about plant based diets lead to the creation of the cancer victory garden, and the many benefits beyond growing healthy foods.

About this episode's guest, Laura Rutledge

#413: Plant Based Diets and the Cancer Victory Garden - [Laura Rutledge] I am Laura Rutledge, a RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) who loves to eat, think about food and talk about food!

I graduated from Auburn University with a BS in the Coordinated Dietetics Program and completed my master’s degree in exercise physiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I am credentialed as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) and licensed as a dietitian in the state of Alabama. I am also a board certified specialist in oncology nutrition.

I have worked in a variety of settings including patient care units, undergraduate and graduate education. I love to educate people (patients, public, healthcare providers and students) about the role of nutrition in health – how diet can help prevent disease as well as how to help manage diseases with nutrition. Over the years I have given numerous talks to professional and community groups on nutrition and cancer prevention, nutrition during cancer treatment and nutrition for cancer survivors.

Nourishing Plate was created to provide evidence-based information on nutrition and cancer along with tips to combat symptoms associated with cancer treatment and provide tasty, easy recipes appropriate for everyone! I sincerely hope this resource is helpful to you whether you are battling cancer, caring for someone with cancer or simply striving to live a healthy life!
