ICP 56: Matt Ruscigno, RD

The intersection between Vegan advocacy and nutritional science

Thank you for listening to EP 56. Matt Ruscigno is a registered dietician who started from an animal welfare and rights standpoint in the vegan world. He decided that to more effectively convey this information, he wanted to make sure he was eating a healthful diet at the same time of was following his moral compass. And he found this by going to school to become a registered dietician. 

In our extended, in-person conversation, we speak about:

  • Nutritional Concerns for plant-based endurance athletes

  • The intersection between vegan advocacy and eating a healthful diet. 

  • Plant-based nutrition vs. vegan nutrition

  • Visibility of veganism and plant-based nutrition today

  • Personal and societal barriers within this realm

  • How to transition and to support those around you who want to change. 

Big thank you to New Patrons Rachel Peck, Ann Hettinger and Juliet Witana.
