Today we share a link to a podcast on the Ordinary Vegan website.

Vegan nutrition isn’t difficult to manoeuvre, but there are a couple of worrisome vitamins we must pay attention to.

Today’s podcast explores those bothersome vitamins and the role of vitamin and mineral supplements in a plant-based diet.

You will learn:
How easy it is to obtain healthy vegan nutrition
How your body is designed to get nutrients

What supplements you need on a vegan diet
The truth about Vitamin D and cow’s milk

What foods have Vitamin B12
How to maintain healthy levels of B12

We will prepare:
One of Ordinary Vegan’s most popular recipes called Twice Baked Sweet Potato with Cashew Cream.  
**Did you know the people of Okinawa have a life expectancy among the highest in the world and 27% of their diet consists of sweet potatoes!**

We will discuss:
Emotional Sobriety and how not to rely on other people to make you feel valued.
