The only supplements that I can determine that are required on a plant based diets are B12 and EPA/DHA which source is lab grown algae.


The cheapest way to get our B12 is probably one 2500 microgram sublingual, chewable, or liquid supplement of cyanocobalamin once a week.

Becareful, the kirkland version isn’t the right one.  Here is an explanation:

Don’t buy me.,-300-Tablets.product.100022642.html

  • Methylcobalamin Form of B-12 (this type of B-12 is not good)

I buy this one.  It is a two year supply.  I have no affiliation with Swanson.


I take this once a day.

I am hungry. How can I find a healthy plant based place to eat quickly?

At most Wendy’s you can get 2 orders of salad (toss the cheese) and 2 baked potatoes for about $10.

However, for something more interesting, this website and mobile app can help you find a place nearby.

Another list of places I didn’t know about

Are all grains created equal?

Brenda Davis does a great job explaining a topic that can be confusing.  Bottom line – sprouted whole grains are the best.  I like sprouted buckwheat as part of a morning cereal.   It is fast, like in less than 48 hours.  I had no luck sprouting oat grouts.  I bought Bob Oat Groats They are hulless.  “Hulless whole oats are available, but they may not sprout well. Choose oat groats still in the hull for best results”

Magic Foods

It seems that not all foods are created equal.  This will be a page that captures interesting foods that I uncover that have magic properties.  Right now this section is dominated by Dr. Greger.  If you don’t know who he is, soon you will.

Broccoli Sprouts – The magic ingredient is sulforaphane.  Say that 4 times fast.

Turmeric (plus a little black pepper)

Goji Berries (called Amla powder) is cheap.

Wakame Seaweed
