Which path do you follow? Vegan? Ovo-lacto or lacto-vegetarian? Fish-oil isn't vegetarian. Maybe B12 is all you need.

I would just take a good multivitamin (one that says it's for vegetarians should have some extra b-12.) You don't need fish oil, just make sure you're including flax seeds and walnuts in your diet.

Get the omega-3's from the place the fish get it... Algae oil. <a href="http://www.rawfood.com/cgi-bin/order/index.cgi?id=367381513425&d=single&item_id=0694&c=Supplements&sc=Miscellaneous&tc=" target="_blank">http://www.rawfood.com/cgi-bin/order...cellaneous&tc=</a><br><br>
That is a good brand right there. You can also just take klamath-lake blue green algae found in any health food store as well.<br><br><br><br>
You can also take hemp and/or flax oil with coconut oil...combine it with a healthy diet rich in fresh fruits and veggies, and you should convert your essential fats just fine.<br><br><br><br>
I think a good B vitamin is a good idea for a lot of people. Most of it is from bacteria so no need to worry about it being vegan. I take methylcobalamin sublingual b-12 tabs.
