We open with Bruce Friedrich, who has been called “the conscience of the animal rights movement,” discussing the new book he’s authored with Kathy Freston, Clean Protein: The Revolution That Will Reshape Your Body, Boost Your Energy, and Save Our Planet; and then we move on to an in-depth discussion of how to be successfully and vibrantly vegan with internist Dr. Michelle McMacken.
Bruce Friedrich is executive director of The Good Food Institute (GFI), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes innovative alternatives to industrially produced animal products. He has penned opinion pieces for USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and many other publications. Most recently Bruce coauthored Clean Protein with New York Times bestselling author, Kathy Freston, about the revolution that will reshape your body, boost your energy, and save the planet.
