I really, REALLY want me and my family to begin eating a vegan diet. I have done a lot of research and have seen a lot of conflicting information regarding nutrient deficiencies, ie low iron, calcium, B vitamins. So, I'm confused. Do any of you who follow a vegan diet have issues with these deficiencies? If so, how do you supplement? If not, what do you specifically eat that covers all your nutrient requirements? I have an idea of what we would need to eat to cover everything, but want to know from those of you who are vegans what you eat just in case I might be missing something.
As an aside, do you notice a cheaper grocery bill eating vegan vs a regular carnivorous diet? My reasons for going vegan are numerous and this is something I am curious about.
