    B-12! That’s right, you hear about it’s high volumes in meats, but how do vegans and vegetarians get the right amount?

    Check out an excerpt: “A lot of times when someone first goes vegan or vegetarian, whether it’s themselves or someone else, the common question comes up: where will I/you get the nutrients I need from foods that I’d normally get from animal products? A prime example of this is B-12. Keep in mind that this vitamin can also be called: cobrynamide, cobinamide, cobamide, cobalamin, hydroxcobalamin, aquocobalamin, nitrotocobalamin, and cyanocobalamin.

    And as we know, B-12 is primarily found in animal products like meats like fish, beef, cheese and eggs, but did you know that there are alternatives ways of receiving an equal, if not higher quality amount?

    Here are some alternatives sources for B-12:

    · Fortified cereals

    · Nutritional yeast

    · Fortified soymilk (one cup has half the daily recommendations!)

    · Fortified tofu

    · Fortified soy products·

    Grape Nuts

    · Sea Vegetables”

    I thought it was pretty helpful and hopefully you do, too! To check out the full blog go here:
