So I purchased The Kind Diet on Monday and haven't had an ounce of meat or dairy since. I know it's only been five days but I'm so tired. I've been working out daily, going to bed at 9pm and forcing myself to get out of bed at 6:30am. By the time the afternoon comes along, all I want to do is lie down and take a nap. I feel like I'm eating quite well. All this new food is not that foreign to me so I think I'm getting a good balance of nutrition. When is all this energy supposed to kick in? I'm dragging:-(
I agree; whole foods rather than processed, although miso soup is very good for you as well as tempeh and tofu in moderation.Stick to whole grains, beans, lots of vegetables, especially dark green leafy ones.
I do not believe that most vegans need B vitamin pills.
B1 and B2 are found in cereals and whole grains. B1 is also found in potatoes, and kidney beans. B2 is found in green leafy vegetables, which should be eaten twice a day.
B3 is found in nuts, whole grains, and dried beans.
B5 is found in almost all foods.
B6 is found in potatoes, wheat germ, bananas, and dried beans.
B7 is made by intestinal bacteria and is also in peanuts, bananas, mushrooms, watermelon, and grapefruit.
B9 is in green leafy vegetables, liver, citrus fruits, mushrooms, nuts, peas, dried beans, and wheat bread.
B12 is in fortified plant milks and cereals, or can be taken as a supplement once or twice a week.
