Become a master in label reading. Without a doubt, this is one of the unexpected side effects of going vegan. You will also notice that lots of packaged foods, that are vegan are not labelled as such. In most cases, this is done because the factory that produces them also handles non-vegan items.

Get familiar with Vitamin B12. Please note I am not a medical Profesional and my advice here is to simply inform you. B12 is the only vitamin that is not present in any plants. You can get it from Vitamin-enriched foods or by taking a supplement.I highly recommend you reading Dr.Brenda Davis blog where you will find practical nutritional information.
Explore other aspects of veganism by learning how not using animal products can impact other humans, the animals, the envirioment and of course yourself.

Another reason is that the grain produced at present is enough to feed every living human but instead is given to livestock. Then there is the environmental reason that animal factory farming causes pollution on many levels.
To me going vegan is one of the best decisions I have ever made back in 2012. It’s simple and easier than ever before. Its good for the animals, for the environment and for your health.
