My 15 year old daughter wants to be a vegan, any suggestions?


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!)

    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!

    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!

    The more I do research and watch documentaries, the more I think it's the right way to go.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    "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!
