D3 is generally better than D2 at raising blood levels of D but D2 is still effective, especially at the dosing you are taking.

50,000 IU is definitely a 'doctor prescribed' dosing and is likely just to get your levels back into a good range quickly. Most people take 1000-5000 IU per day as a maintenance dose. Once the D2 runs out just go grab a reliable brand of D3 (I like Doctors Best) and take that once a day with a meal containing fat (fat helps your body absorb the D).

This is amazing, I am so glad you are starting your journey to becoming vegan. My best suggestion is using cronometer.com to track your food for a good portion of time in order for you to get a handle on what foods have what properties and nutrients you need from them. Vegan diets can easily cover all your nutrients, I get all of the FDA's recommended doses of micronutrients daily and almost double their recommended protein amount. Here is a quick rundown of nutrients and vegan foods that are abundant in them


  • Fat- Avocado, coconut, oils, nuts, seeds, and soybeans (tofu, tempeh, edamame)

  • Carbohydrates- Fruit, Legumes, Grains, Vegetables

  • Protein- Beans, Lentils, Faux meats, Green Vegetables, Grains

  • amino acids are all present in all food just at different rations so eat a variety.

    You will meet all your macro-nutrient needs eating 2100 calories of any variety of foods. (eat and don't eat only fruit or drink oil for your calories, super easy)

    Micronutrients: (These are only the ones some lack on a vegan diet, take in consideration that less then 1% of the world eats all of their proper micro-nutrients and eating more vegetables and beans almost always makes people get more)

  • Omega 3- Ground Flax Seed, Chia Seeds, and, Dark Green Vegetables (roughly 10% per serving of dark green veggies)
    Omega 3's are the most challenging to get at the start of a vegan diet, basically you add in a tablespoon of chia seeds or flax seeds to your diet daily and it covers you or you take an algae based supplement. Omega 3 is not a necessary nutrient but it does greatly help you.

  • B12- Supplement this, here's a great article on it with recommended supplements www.veganhealth.org/articles/vitaminb12 you likely are already getting it from meat that got it from being heavily supplemented with b12, its a bacteria and we eat less bacteria now then throughout evolution so it's not exactly a vegan issue.

  • Vitamin D- The sun, supplements, or mushrooms left in the sun. I take this in the winter and in the summer I use the sun. Here's an article about it

  • Calcium- Nut Milk, Vegetables (Dark green especially), Chia seeds, Fruit, and Nuts.

  • Vitamin E- (which is less of a problem for vegans but still not easy) Nut Milks, Almonds, Vegetables.

  • Iron- It is a misconception that this is challenging I actually get more now then over, anyway Green veggies, Beans, Lentils, Grains

  • Selenium- Only an issue if you don't get a few servings of grains especially whole wheat, or eat one brazil nut, or 400 kiwis

  • Zinc- Beans, Grains, Nuts and Seeds. This is one most people don't expect.

    In short eat a few servings of grains, beans, fruit, green veg, nut milk, nuts, and seeds and you got it covered. Two servings of each daily will likely cover all your nutritional needs.

    Edit: I suck at formatting

    Ps. Also when doing your method I highly suggest doing the simple things on top of the x number of days a week you are vegan. By this I mean using plant milk instead of normal, and trying to have almost identical vegan products like chao instead of cheddar, and gardein and beyond beef instead of meats. The products I mentioned are best known for their phenomenal ability to replicate the original.

You can increase the amount of iron you get through diet in a number of ways, by eating iron and Vitamin C rich foods together, avoiding oxalate-rich foods (Dark leafy greens are very healthy and contain some iron, but they also contain oxalate which can lower iron absorption. However, cooking them lowers the oxalate content, so if you're using things like spinach, collard greens, kale, etc., have them at a separate meal or cook them well), cooking in cast iron, or using a lucky iron fish.

> Anyone out there with healthy nutrient filled recipes that a teen would love?

Some recipe ideas are in the links, but:

  • Oatmeal (or muffins or granola made with oats) or iron-fortified breakfast cereal with orange juice, or melon fruit salad.
  • Pineapple black bean salsa (or made with white beans or chickpeas). The sweetness of the fruit may make the boringness of the beans a little better.
  • Dirty mashed potatoes (or other potato dishes with the skin included) with bell peppers or tomatoes.
  • Dark chocolate has relatively high iron, and it's usually easy to get teens to eat

    > and her vitamin D is low

    Vitamin D deficiency is surprisingly common (among vegans and non-vegans), especially since so many people spend so much time indoors nowadays. Luckily, there are Vitamin D fortified foods like plant milks, and vegan Vitamin D supplements (even Vitamin D3, the form which may be absorbed better). After taking a higher dose for a few weeks, she should get another blood test to see if it's been effective.

    Here's much more comprehensive information on vegan Vitamin D supplementation, if you're interested.

Also you asked elsewhere on the thread about D3. Here's what I use:

Some are, but a lot (if not most) aren't vegan. A really common animal ingredient is the capsule itself - a gelatin capsule. Other things are amino acids (often derived from hair, feathers, etc), lactose (milk sugar), stuff like that.

You can find plenty of vegan vitamin D and multivitamins.

People say d3 is easier for your body to absorb. Vegan D3 is harder to find but it exists. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00E816ROU/ref=psdcmw_6936848011_t1_B009MHS9RI

u/Sajor1975 · 1 pointr/vegan

I just purchased doctors best D3, in the ingredients it says as Cholecalciferol / vitashine D3. I hope it's vegan lol.
