A vegan diet is not so lacking as many believe. One need not worry about protein or calcium. My biggest recommendation for any long term vegan would be, research and invest in a high quality B vite supplement. They tend to be difficult for the body to break down and a deficiency in B 12 is a serious health risk. Be balanced and safe and enjoy the wonderful food the earth around us offers!!!

B12 deficiency, aging, Alzheimer's. It's a REALLY common deficiency, testing can be inaccurate, supplements are effective but only if you get the right kind (sublingual and NOT *cyano*cobalamin). (NYTimes article)
