No Meat- Help Getting those Vitamins and Minerals
Hey all,

I have been not eating meat for about 7 years now (just don't like it). Anyone have advice on how to get that Vitamin B, D, iron, etc. that I seem to keep lacking in my blood results?

I am always running around so find it hard to make full meals like fish, etc....if anyone has ideas on what to eat to replace meat on a budget and on the run it would be much appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eggs are a good source of vitamin B-12 and iron as well as selenium and Protien. Eggs also have a small amount of vitamin D but fish is probably the best dietary source. Just being out in the sunshine you will absorb vitamin D.

:)I second the notion that being out in the sun - just hatless with bare arms, for 20 or 30 minutes each day, will snag plenty of vitamin D. When I try to do that, all I can think of is what I SHOULD be doing indoors. It's harder than it looks....
