About this educator-
Suzanne Sorensen RD, LD, CDE
After 30+ years of standard American diet, a scuba trip for lobster hunting introduced Suzy to the fantastic lives of underwater creatures. This up close and personal view of the rich lives of animals began her journey to vegetarianism and, eventually, veganism.
As a dietitian moving to plant-based eating for compassionate reasons, she soon discovered that benefits to health and environment are also significant.
As she became active in the Twin Cities veg community, Suzy recognized a need for accurate vegetarian & vegan nutrition information. Move2Veg is an opportunity to support those who want to meet their nutritional needs through plant-based eating.
