Oyster Mushrooms got Vitamin B12. Pretty expensive, but easy to grow:

Nutritional yeast is a really good source of b12. it's also fortified with other b vitamins/minerals and it tastes great on pretty much everything.

Peace all,

I basically consume what Allah has given us to consume in moderation.

[6:69] It is He who sends down rain from the sky and with it we bring
forth vegetation of all kinds, and out of it We bring forth thick clustered
grain. And out of the date palm and its spate come clusters of dates
hanging low and near, and gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranates
each similar (in kind) yet different (in variety and taste). Look at their
fruits when then begin to bear, and the ripeness thereof.     :eat:

[16:66]  And verily in the cattle there is a lesson for you. We give you
to drink of that which is in their bellies, from between excretion and
blood, pure milk, palatable to the drinkers.

[35:12]??..And not alike are the two bodies of water. One is fresh and sweet,
palatable for drinking, and one is salty and bitter. And from each you eat tender
meat and extract ornaments which you wear...??..


                                                  :peace:

I just started going vegan about a month ago. There is honey and dairy in some of the breakfast/meal replacement/protein bars that I eat but I'm pretty much vegan other than that.

I'm South Asian and we're at increased risk of heart diseases so I became vegan for health reasons primarily but also because I personally couldn't kill an animal and so I felt hypocritical eating meat.

Sugar, chocolate and spices are plant based so I'm fine with being vegan lol.
Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.


We here have different views from salaat, to haj, to qibla to shirk to many fiqh issues. But there is something that binds us all, is we take our deen from the Quran and we recognize its authority over anything else. - BigMo

Yes. It is because as much as the environment is being destroyed by meat eating, people are eating more of the animal products.

Eating too many animal products means poorer health, worse for environment, worse for animals, worse for breeding pandemic viruses.

I'm aiming for 90% plant-based diet.

I remember always being hungry when I was 100% vegan. I dont feel weak anymore now that I eat lamb, lean chicken and humane eggs.

Apparently a common mistake vegans make is not eating enough, because plant foods tend not to be calorie dense, so you could be eating the same volume/weight of food as before but the calories will be significantly less.

I would make sure I was getting enough calories because I didnt want to lose weight. Plant foods just digest too quickly for me. I have a fast metabolism.
