Question from Fran Batzer: I have a question about supplements for hair, skin & nails. I have been plant-based for 7+ years Now and my nails are weak and have ridges on them. 1. Enjoy foods with silica, like millet and leafy green veggies. Among its many important duties, silica helps deliver nutrients to the peripherals of the body, i.e. hair, skin, and nails. Foods to incorporate: alfalfa, radish, romaine lettuce, burdock root, cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, steel-cut oats, millet, and leafy greens 2. Avoid foods that deplete your body of minerals. Trans fats, found in some processed and fast foods, interfere with the body’s ability to absorb healthy fatty acids (like those found in avocados, nuts, and pure plant oils). Think of your healthy fats as moisturizer from the inside-out. Our nails need healthy moisturizing to avoid becoming brittle and susceptible to damage. Sugar, too, can wreak beauty havoc by depleting the body of vital nutrients like calcium, magnesium, zinc, and sulfur. 3. Get enough protein. Hair and nails are made with proteins called keratin. Without enough dietary protein, the body won’t have the proper building blocks to create strong and healthy nails. Fortunately, getting enough protein on a vegan diet can be easy and delicious (as evidenced here.) 4. Be friends with biotin (vitamin B7). Biotin is one of the more well-known hair-skin-and-nails superstars and is often found in beauty products. Biotin in shampoo, for example, may not be as absorbable as dietary biotin, however—so eat up! Oddly, biotins benefits for nails were first discovered when biotin supplements were used to prevent horses’ hooves from splitting! Incorporate berries, spinach, mushrooms, legumes, avocado, and cauliflower.

The Starch Queens are all about Starch- What’s with all this talk about Starch not breaking down? High Quality Starch In a culture that has become carbohydrate-phobic, a very important aspect of human biology has been shoved into the shadows. That happens to be our digestive system. We hear a lot about gluten, and too many phytates, and how hard it is for us to break down cellulose. But we digest starch just fine. And this is because we are a part of the animal kingdom that produces the enzyme amylase while we chew. Carnivores do not. Ever hear the term: digestion begins in the mouth? Amylase is the reason. Our pancreas also produces amylase, which helps us to efficiently break down sugars. Our tongue seeks out carbohydrate on purpose. The problem is that we’ve become too fond of processed starch. If you look at the expanse of human dietary history, starches have been central to the diet, whether if be yam or potato, poi, corn, or basmati rice. Even the Paleo crowd has begun to see the light when it comes to traditional vegetable starches. So, if you’re trying to go plant based, but have become convinced that traditional whole starches are to be avoided for some reason, please reconsider. You might be missing out a beneficial fiber source and sound supply of energy.

Are there easy tips to transition to Plant Based for diabetics? How do they manage their blood sugars to ensure stable levels. Most I speak with ask what to eat and how much. They are so used to counting carbs, calories etc. Will they just follow the same process as others and just eat the colors of the rainbow, increase fiber intake? What about fruits? How do they incorporate those with meals? Are there certain fruits to limit or avoid?

What are your thoughts on the benefits of raw foods versus cooked. Worth the extra effort to do more raw? Not a big deal?

Can diabetes hide itself? Be masked as something else? My A1C is 5.5, doc said all normal, that I'm keeping it under control, so does that mean I still have it?
Can symptoms like tingling in the leg and foot start before Diabetes show up in the numbers found on the A1C test?
Would like to know if taking diuretics for high blood pressure affects the kidneys.
Do we become dependent on taking diuretics? Especially long term.
I always thought being plant based I needed to take B12. My Dr suggested getting the shot monthly because it metabolizes better. Is this true?
My triglycerides went way up.
Any suggestions what i can add to my diet?
