Patient Resources

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin

  • Websites dedicated to education about whole food, plant-based diet and its impact on health

    • NutritionMD.org--Disease-based educational information for health care providers and consumers that includes nutrition-focused research and diet considerations, recipes, shopping lists and more. Dr. Jaster co-authored 2 editions of the Nutrition Guide for Clinicians after residency training, and this is the free online resource of that text.

    • PCRM.org--Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine. Meal plans for specific health concerns as well as tons of great resources about how a plant-based diet optimizes health and prevents, as well as often reversing, chronic disease.

    • NutritionFacts.org--A wonderfully informative site of videos that Dr. Michael Greger has compiled. Almost any health topic you could think of will have a few videos.

    • ForksOverKnives.com--Check out their plant-based primer as well as the feature film documentary with the same title. Also, the website has tons of recipes.​
