PROTEIN: I am begging you: please do not worry about getting enough protein on a vegan (or vegan-ish) diet! There have been zero reported cases in modern medical history of a person who is obtaining enough calories per day being protein deficient. However, here’s a fun rhyme to help you remember a few great sources of vegan protein: “Nuts, beans, tofu, seeds! Quinoa, lentils, hemp & peas!” (Stolen from this hilarious Youtube video.) I’m personally a big fan of plant-based meats, like Tofurky, Impossible Burger, Simple Truth, and many others. We’ll go into further depth during our sessions.
B12: Yes, vegans absolutely need a B12 supplement. This is non-negotiable. End of story.
