Vitamin D also works an essential role in bone health. Vitamin D is summed to cow's milk, some kinds of soy and rice milk, and some cereals and margarine. Be certain to examine food labels. If you don't eat adequately fortified foods and have limited sun exposure, you may need a vitamin D supplement (one derived from plants). Vitamin B‐12 is required to create red blood cells and prevent anemia. This vitamin is located almost only in animal products, so it can be difficult to get enough B-12 on a vegan diet. Vitamin B‐12 loss may go undetected in people who consume a vegan diet. This is because the vegan diet is rich in a vitamin named Folate which may mask a lack in vitamin B‐12 until severe problems occur. For this cause, it is essential for vegans to consider vitamin supplements, vitamin-enriched cereals, and fortified soy products.
How difficult is the idea of a turkey‐free Thanksgiving and morning cereal without the milk? Be mindful that healthy vegan‐ism requires planning, especially if you are a newbie. When you want to cook, there is a recipe somewhere that will suit your taste buds. Still, vegan-ism takes some work and creativity. It is up to you to plan meals around plant protein rather than animal protein. There are seemingly an unlimited number of vegan recipes to choose from. Vegan magazines, books and websites abound, offering suggestions for every meal and cuisine.
Omega-3 fatty acids, primarily those found in oily fish, can help maintain a healthy heart and reduce the risk of heart disease when eaten as part of a healthy diet.Sources of omega‐3 fatty acids suitable for vegans include: flaxseed (linseed) oil,rapeseed oil,soy oil and soy-based foods, such as tofu, walnuts. Evidence suggests that plant sources of omega‐3 fatty acids may not have the same benefits in reducing the risk of heart disease as those in oily fish. But if you follow a vegan diet, you can still look after your heart by eating at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day, cutting down on food that is high in saturated fat, and watching how much salt you eat.
The equivalent goes for collecting eggs from chickens and milk from cows and goats. Just as people create milk to nourish their babies, animals produce milk to nourish their young.
