Vegetarian and Vegan Nutritionist Diploma

A vegan is someone who avoids all animal products, including meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, dairy, honey, and other animal-derived ingredients. Vegans typically follow a plant-based diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds.

Like vegetarians, vegans need to ensure that they’re getting all the necessary nutrients from their diet. Common nutrients of concern for vegans include protein, iron, calcium, vitamin B12, and omega-3 fatty acids. Plant-based sources of these nutrients include:

  1. Protein: Beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, seitan, quinoa, nuts, and seeds.
  2. Iron: Beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, spinach, kale, and fortified cereals.
  3. Calcium: Dark leafy greens, fortified plant milks, tofu made with calcium sulfate, and calcium-fortified orange juice.
  4. Vitamin B12: Fortified plant milks, fortified cereals, and nutritional yeast.
  5. Omega-3 fatty acids: Flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts, and algae-derived supplements.

It’s important for vegans to plan their meals carefully to ensure that they’re meeting their nutrient needs. Consulting a registered dietitian who specializes in vegan nutrition can also be helpful for ensuring a balanced and healthy diet
