I have no problem with her wanting to be a vegan, I'm just not sure how to do it since my husband and I are not. I'd appreciate any suggestions, thanks.

I totally agree Billie. That's very true. It really made me think. I was emotionally unhappy at the time but knew I could never kill an animal so it was a mixed statement. I never looked at it this way before, food for thought indeed (Veggie!)
We eat a lot of beans already, just because they are so cheap AND nutritious! We always have dinner together every night, and both my husband and I are very supportive of my daughter. She's never been one to follow the crowd.
Thank you for the suggestions, I will certainly check them out! There is a lot of good resources of info out there on the web.
2 babies being a vegetarian! That's awesome! Thank you for some great advice! I think she will like cooking new foods! She is always on youtube looking at videos on green smoothies and other foods to make. Thank you for the great suggestions!
Yes, I agree! I will definitely do my homework, thanks!
Yes, I have nutritional yeast on my list right now. You're right about the B12, and so I have made sure to have supplements for her too.
Thank you, I will certainly encourage her!
Almond milk is low in protein, hemp or soy milk are the only non-dairy milk that can compete for the protein that milk offers, just to let you know (I wrote a hub on milk alternatives). I will definitely have to look up recipes online!
I might need that vegan cooking class too!
Thank you, it's not a decision she made overnight, that's for sure. She's really given it a lot of thought and did her research too.
Yes, I agree and I have already been looking into where I can get those supplements.
The more I do research and watch documentaries, the more I think it's the right way to go.
Yes, it would seem that not only what you said, but the protein from plants is 100% digestible whereas the human body can only absorb 50% of protein from meat.
all the B vitamins are very important especially B6 for females.
We take B complex supplements, and I agree that it's important to get enough iron and other vitamins and minerals. Thank you for your comment.
Yep, I know Mercia; however, I singled out B12 cos it is difficult, if my memory serves me well, to get from vegetable sources, the other B vitamins are fairly easy.
Well it is her choice, but we are still her parents. I am supportive of her decision and I am trying to help in any way I can, especially to ensure she gets the right vitamins and minerals she needs.
I feel pretty much the same way!
Yes, she has always been independent and not bothered by what other people think.
"Vitamins, minerals and carbohydrate are rich in vegetable" - Yes, I completely agree! I think it is a very healthy lifestyle.
I agree with you regarding the soy, but sadly most of our foods are genetically modified, but not labelled so we know. She's slowly transitioning to vegetarian, and I will check for any allergies with her doctor for sure!
