About the Author

Dr. Reshma Shah is a board-certified pediatrician and an affiliate clinical instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine where she teaches nutrition to pediatric residents. As the nutrition director for the Pediatric Integrative Medicine Fellowship at Stanford, Dr. Shah created nutrition modules that emphasize a plant-based approach to optimizing health and is an active member of the core Integrative Medicine faculty.

She has nearly two decades of experience in primary care pediatrics and has served as an assistant clinical professor at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. She currently cares for patients at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and has additional training and certification in plant-based nutrition and cooking.

Dr. Shah speaks to parent audiences in her local community, including at Stanford University's Health Improvement Program, part of the Stanford Prevention Research Center. She has been an invited guest to speak about plant-based nutrition, nutrition for children, and the importance of family meals.

In addition to her teaching and speaking engagements, Dr. Shah maintains a professional website at reshmashahmd.com and continues to grow her platform on Instagram @reshmashah. She has been a featured guest on the Plant Trainers Podcast, Rouxbe Culinary School, and has written for Forks Over Knives.

Dr. Shah obtained her undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Johns Hopkins University and her medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine. She has received teaching awards at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital as well as Stanford University School of Medicine.

Brenda Davis, registered dietitian, is widely regarded as a rock star of plant-based nutrition. Veg News called her "The Godmother of vegan dietitians" and the Complete Health Improvement Program founder referred to her as "The High Priestess of Vegan Nutrition."

Davis has been a featured speaker at medical and nutrition conferences in over twenty countries on five continents. Among the most exciting adventures include a personal consult and lecture for a member of the royal family and his staff in Saudi Arabia (with colleague, Dr. Michael Greger), a lifestyle intervention demonstration project for the medical community in Lithuania (with colleague, Dr. John Kelly), a keynote lecture to the Tzu Chi Medical Association in Taiwan, lectures for dietitians at national nutrition conferences in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Spain, Taiwan, the United States, and the United Kingdom, and ongoing diabetes intervention research and education in the Marshall Islands. Davis has served as the lead dietitian for this project since 2006. On her last trip to the Marshall Islands (November 2017), she developed a nutrition education curriculum for kindergarten through grade six and trained teachers in all public schools.

Davis is a prolific author with eleven vegetarian and vegan nutrition classics with close to eight hundred thousand copies sold, in fourteen languages. Her most recent works include Kick Diabetes Essentials: The Diet and Lifestyle Guide (Davis, 2019 - in press), The Kick Diabetes Cookbook (Davis and Melina, 2018), Becoming Vegan: Comprehensive Edition (Davis and Melina, 2014) and Becoming Vegan: Express Edition (Davis and Melina, 2013). Becoming Vegan: Comprehensive Edition won the REAL Best of 2014 Book Award, and Becoming Vegan: Express Edition won the Canada Book Award and was a finalist and received honorable mention in the Foreward Book of the Year Award. Becoming Vegan: Comprehensive and Express Editions have also received a star rating by the American Library Association as the "go-to books" on plant-based nutrition.

Davis has co-authored numerous professional and lay articles. She is a past chair of the Vegetarian Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Davis has been promoting plant-based diets since making the transition herself in 1989. Her personal and professional life goals are one and the same - to make this world a kinder, more compassionate place. Davis's work focuses on ensuring that everyone who wishes to be vegetarian or vegan can succeed brilliantly. In 2007, Brenda Davis was inducted into the Vegetarian Hall of Fame.
