11) Focus on a nutrient.
I do believe getting all my nutrients from food is best. However, in 2010 a blood test showed I was dangerously low in B-12. At the time I was eating lots of green vegetables, grains and beans and thought I was winning in the nutrient density race. I know these are not terribly good sources -if at all- of B-12. I wasn’t consuming much processed food which to it’s merit is at least often fortified with this vitamin. Luckily this cheap little sub-lingual, which also contains Folic acid, had me on the upswing within weeks. B-12 deficiency can sneak up on all of us, Omni’s included. I’m pretty crappy about remembering to take it, especially since the company I use changed the formula to a chalkier, slower dissolving tablet. It’s 1000mcg’s. I try to take it a few times a week. I know other vegans say they do not supplement at all and that works for them but this works for me.
