I have been vegan for 10 years or so. Regarding the fish oil, Nu Tru Vegan Omega 3 is algae derived. You can get it on Amazon. However, it does run out at times but usually is quickly back in stock.

I have been vegan for many years now. This was a good video. I think it is also important to mention that you must vary your grains in order to fulfill nutritional needs as well.

I enjoyed this video. Have been vegan for a year now and being reminded of the plate portions is useful as I do put the same things in my lunch box most days (lettuce, spinach, parsley, coriander, tomatoes, pak choi, celery, beetroot, spring onions, radish, carrot, seeds & nuts) I keep forgetting the beans! I don't mind that Christa is paelo as long as the advice is sound (wouldn't eat tofu anyway). Keep the information coming FMTV.

I take D3 with K since i have low B12 and iron.. i believe when you are low in these you don't absorb D3 unless you have it with K. Magnesium is another good supplement to help lower blood pressure, good for relieving stress and helps with sleeping. Great video!

Am very interested in following a plant based diet and have been watching all the cooking/information from FMTV. I found this a refreshing and informative video from Christa Orecchio. I plan on watching her other videos over the weekend
