3. Almonds
4. Oranges (and orange juice fortified with calcium)

  11. I am enjoying your blogging and tips so much! you share the same opinions as me,
    I have recently recovered from an eating disorder and my doctor said it would be fine to go back to being strictly vegan although he does not recommend it, what is your take on being vegan as someone who is very active in the gym and tries to eat a lot of protein mostly from protein bars?
