Dear Deborah: Thanks for your kind words! Whole plant foods are so loaded with protein, calcium and the other nutrients you need that as long as you are eating only the healthy whole plants foods and getting enough calories, it is very easy to get all the nutrients you need, except Vitamin B12, which you can get from supplements. You can find some free 10-day menu plans here: https://www.drmcdougall.com/health/education/free-mcdougall-program/10-day-meal-plan/. Vegetable oils are highly processed foods, not whole foods. Just like we can extract sugar from whole plants, we extract oils from whole plants. Neither are whole foods. Both can be damaging to the body. You can read more about why WFPB experts don’t recommend oils here: https://meridianmag.wpengine.com/article-1-14585-2/. I also post responses to comments on my articles on my website: https://discoveringthewordofwisdom.com/meridian-comments/. Bless you!

The author of this article has made an impact on my life. Her articles are always well written and have so much "food" for thought. Thank you for the words of wisdom and practical advice. Can't wait to share this with my friends and family. I wish someone would make a menu showing an example of what we could eat for 1 day that supplied all the nutrients, protein, and calcium needed for a day. How much plant food do we need to be healthy? What about oils?
