Hi

I have been vegetarian for a few months and I am feeling tired, my nails are breaking and I am feeling un-healthy. I want to get vitamins that are vegan and will give me all the minerals and vitamins I need. If anyone knows some good vitamins please tell me! Thanks.

What does your typical food for a day look like? (so we can tell you what you are missing food-wise from your diet).

I usually have one fruit, a bunch of carbs and some vegetables. I dont have time to make myself meals. For breakfast I have half a yogurt or toast. Lunch I have peaunut butter and jelly, pizza, or salad with a bannana and milk. Dinner varies from boca burgers with tater tots (french fries) to cereal.

You might try multi-vitamin tablets. (so you can get better nutrients incase you aren't) maybe vitamin A or B or beta carotene deficiency. Or maybe you just need more protien.

You might check out VB's search feature, using "multivitamins" or "vegan vitamins", etc. There are many threads here on this subject.

you seem really nutrient deficient in your day to day diet.. it's lacking in variety, protein, calories, etc...

try this on for size, though:

B: 1 cup calcium fortified soymilk (or soygurt), oatmeal with dried fruit and molasses(can be cooked with the soymilk, it's YUMMY!), an additional fresh fruit (try adding fresh berries to your oatmeal, or have cold cereal with fresh fruit mixed in)..

L: Pita Bread with Hummus OR PBJ or Rice and Beans, etc. Mixed green salad with lots of veggies - add some nuts for protein and healthy fats. some dried or fresh fruit.

S: smoothie! soymilk/soygurt (with calcium), frozen berries (blue/ras/straw), frozen banana, almond butter. blenderize.. (you get healthy fats, fruits, protein and calcium here)

D: Rice/Beans OR Daal OR Boca (but not on a regular basis), OR Stir fry veggies with Calcium-Pressed tofu, mixed fresh cooked veggies, a small tossed green salad with some nuts and dried fruit, oj...



you need more nutrients and calories in your day, a vitamin isn't a cure-all.
