The Boston Vegan Association recently completed work on a full-color vegan nutrition guide and has started A) using it to educate the public while tabling at area events and B) distributing to activists all around the world to do the same. People who have requested pamphlets (or even just one pamphlet) so far include individuals looking for information on what constitutes a healthy diet and vegan activists who have requested copies to use in their own advocacy work. This resource is also available to *you*.

To receive your free copy or copies of Demystifying Vegan Nutrition, all you have to do is visit our contact page at bostonvegan.org and send us your request, letting us know how many you'd like and why you think you'd make good use of that many. Bear in mind that though this literature may be free to you, the design, printing, and shipping did cost someone else a significant amount of money, and we don't want to see good resources go to waste. So, please have an idea how you'll distribute the guides in a way that most of them won't end up in the trash.

Oh, and spread the word!

This is great! I'm definitely going to look this over.

Here's one from Loma Linda School of Public Health that I like. http://www.vegetariannutrition.org/food-pyramid.pdf

Feel free to ask for as many as you need. Unlike the one you linked, our guide does not recommend any animal products, so it will be more useful to you when you want to share it with people who are curious about vegan nutrition.

I wouldn't say that the Loma Linda one is recommending animal products. It is just tailored for vegans and vegetarians to use. It's not as clear in the food pyramid itself, but on the bottom of that page it has a table that lists servings per food group for vegan (left side of the table) and vegetarian (right side of the table) for different calorie levels. It has been helping me to loose weight (slowly). I would definitely recommend it to vegans / people learning about vegan nutrition.
