I've been vegan for two years and the only thing I regret is not doing it sooner! I always think of questions that I try to find answers to to make sure I'm staying healthy and completely vegan. one that I'm hoping you could help me with is about calcium. my other vegan friend says we don't need more calcium which is why we shouldn't worry about it but most milk-substitute products brag about having 2x the amount of calcium. so which is it?do we always need more or do we have enough by childhood
I’m so glad that going vegan has been such a positive experience for you, I feel exactly the same way. In terms of calcium, we continue to need calcium throughout our lives, we need more in adulthood than we did as children. However, it’s pretty easy to get on a vegan diet without putting too much thought into it. Dark leafy greens and fortified plant milks have it in abundance and I haven’t yet met any vegan experiencing a calcium deficiency. I have some links on vegan sources of calcium on my resources page which may help you out a bit.
Ate vegan Mac and cheese.. Feeing regret.. Eating raw makes me feel great, better than ever, but it has given me an unhealthy mindset on cooked food.
Blah yeah that’s how I felt when I was raw ! It made me feel scared of food and that’s not healthy. Eating intuitively and not putting any restrictions on my vegan diet has really helped bring me back to a good mindset!
The vegan diet uses no perennial cropland, making it a less
effective use of land than you might suspect.
Researchers found that the carrying capacity—the size of the population that can be supported indefinitely by the resources of an ecosystem—of the vegan diet is actually less substantial than two of the vegetarian diets and two out of the four omnivorous diets they studied.
tumblr is so great when it comes to social justice and equality but once someone mentions the meat industry you’re all fucking sticking your fingers in your ears because it actually requires you to get up and do shit about it instead of just sitting behind your lousy computer screens agreeing with that one thing that one person just posted
