Podcast Ep 22: Common Nutrient Deficiencies and How to Avoid Them

The word deficiency comes up a lot from outside sources when someone goes plant-based or vegan. But I’m here to break it all down for you! Deficiencies are common among ALL Americans, meat eaters and vegans alike. On this episode we go over what those deficiencies are, how we can avoid them, and what foods we can consume to make sure we’re balanced. The most prevalent issues in America come from inadequate levels of zinc, calcium, iron, b12, and omega 3’s. We also chat about the difference between being whole food plant-based and vegan.

Calcium and Vitamin D


Omega 3 (EPA and DHA)
