Making the decision of going vegan isn't something one takes lightly. There are many questions that come up. How will you get enough protein? Where will you get enough calcium? How will you consume enough iron? Are there any animal-free sources of omega-3s?
One needs answers to all of these questions before taking the leap. Luckily, this infographic from PETA comes to the rescue answering your most pressing concerns. You'll find plenty of tips on how to maintain adequate nutrition while consuming plenty of vitamins and cholesterol-free foods.
