Having a health coach could be a great idea as well as this wonderful site. And talking to someone who can understand you and help you being on 'track' , being an ally and supporting could be so nice! Lucie: Thank so much for the suggestion. Unfortunately, I don't think a "health coach" w...

Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

I got the Good Karma brand, that has pea protein as a thickener. ...

Slacker:

Thanks!

When I went back to the link, I recognized the topics around it. Either I paged too fast the first time, or the amount of information was overwhelming, and I missed it.

It was for folic acid. However, I thought it said that supplements containing folate were really folic acid.

MarcR: Thanks for the input, and references. As I have never trusted the AHA, I think I am going to work on th...
