I chose Vesanto when transitioning to a plant based diet because I wanted someone with a lot of experience as well as a science background. Vesanto has both and she is also very patient and non-judgemental which I really appreciated. Although I had read her book and done my own research, it makes such a huge difference to have personalized nutrition advice from a pioneer in the field of plant-based nutrition. I highly recommend Vesanto to anyone who wants to ensure they're getting the most out of their plant-based diet!
