like cassie... the only thing I take is B12...well and vitamin D because the winters are long here.
While there are good things in eggs there are also a lot of bad things... namely saturated fat and cholesterol. All the good things in eggs you can get elsewhere. omega 3s and 6s are available in nuts. complete protein in Quinoa... although I don't even worry about protein. So you might as well only get good things right?
there's nothing good in milk as far as I'm concerned. it's designed for baby cows not people
and in my opinion there's nothing wrong with soy. People in asia have been eating it forever without negative side effects. there's an insane amount of info on the topic here:
Well, I'm not the only one who decided to leave animal products alone after watching this film =)
For my girlfriend and me it's quite hard to be vegan though, because we live in a ... let's say remote ... place on earth. Supplements are really hard to get and expensive but we manage somehow. Luckily the supermarkets offer a wide range of (ecological grown) soy products, e.g. soy milk with added calcium and omega 3. To be honest I don't know how well these supplements in the milk are taken into the body and the blood by the stomach (we heard that the body can't deal with it as well as with the animal related nutrients, but we're vegan since almost half a year and we have no problems). But i have to admit that we're not "hardcore" vegans. If we're invited to some ones place or if we're couchsurfing, we're not picky with the food. I think it's kind of rude to say "no to an invitation, or to say "no I don't eat this, there's ... in". Especially here in the Faroes, where many people seem to think that vegetarians eat grass from the field (and a vegan is considered an unearthly life form), we just eat what they put on the table and try to avoid the meat ;)
Otherwise we eat tons of peas, fresh vegetables and loads of nut products such as peanut butter (with jam - jammy =).
Together with a strict "we buy only organic stuff"-policy and ayurvedic way of life, veganism changed our live into a very positive direction.
I hope it will work out for you. Many animals, the planet and the climate will thank you =)
P.S.: What's bad about soy products? Never heard about that...
