Social entrepreneur and nutrition expert, Candy Marx, to release vegan pregnancy book after signing deal with US publisher. Plantfed Mama: A Holistic Guide to a Vegan Pregnancy, is due for release in early 2019.
The ex-fashion footwear designer admits to changing career paths after switching to a vegan lifestyle and experiencing the health benefits of a plant-based diet. Marx left the fashion industry to study Nutrition and Master Herbalism and now focuses on social entrepreneurship, animal welfare, conservation, humanitarianism, and health and wellbeing.
“As a mother, I noticed that there wasn’t enough information about plant-based pregnancies, from a nutritional and holistic side, and that’s why I wrote the book. I’ve written from experience too.”
Marx recently launched the online platform, Plantfed Mama, which serves as a nutritional hub and forum for vegan, vegetarian and plant-based women and mothers.
“I’ve spoken to women who’ve been called selfish for wanting to remain vegan during their pregnancies – but a wholefoods plant-based diet is anything but. Giving nutritional advice to these women has definitely helped them be more confident in their decision. It’s been wonderful connecting with so many like-minded mamas too.”
