etoile_francaise's top tips
always read the labels. never assume something is vegan, because some products have unwanted animal byproducts included.
it's easiest take a vegan supplement to make sure you're not deficient in vitamin B12, calcium, and iodine. spend some time in the sun or buy fortified products to not become deficient in vitamin D. i recommend DEVA products.
cook most of your own food. this way, you have total control over the ingredients. it's easy to modify recipes to be vegan and also, to include healthier ingredients.
for when you don't have time to cook from scratch, consider using pre-packaged and frozen meat alternatives. be sure to check the labels to make sure they're vegan, because not all of them are. same goes for soy cheeses as many of them are mainly marketed towards the lactose-intolerant.
