I'd love to go vegan, but I need some dairy (cheese, sour cream) to make some of the food edible. I'm working on it though.

This is a great overview, thanks! I have been looking for something exactly like this to know better what to include more in my diet (I'm vegetarian and struggling a bit with iron, and I'm trying to cut down a bit on animal products)

Ok, so this is an awesome chart. While I am not vegan right now, I am vegetarian and have been making an effort to cut back on the eggs and dairy too, but have been nervous about what I might be missing nutrition wise, so this is helpful to look at. Thanks for the post!!

Interesting as there are so many varieties of foods. I eat small amounts of organic meat and also enjoy making recipes for both vegetarian and vegan diets as there is something for everyone here. Can go days without meat but get dizzy after that. Since my meat portions are the size of a deck of cards it is not much but it keeps me healthy as the source is organic not chemicals from factory farms where animals are fed GMO feed (not natural) and kept penned inside. Prefer to grow my own veggies since I know what is in them and local food is easier to monitor to make sure that it's truly organic. Something shipped from far away, one never really knows. Soy can often be GMO unless it is organic.
