Day 16

On day 16 of my diet I took a detour to study how adding Wild Caught fish to ones diet can help close the gap on nutritional need. One thing many vegetarian/vegan diets suffer from is a lack of vitamin B12, which is essential for human health. According to Medline Plus, “Vitamin B12, like the other B vitamins, is important for metabolism. It helps in the formation of red blood cells and in the maintenance of the central nervous system.” I solved this problem by adding Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon to my daily intake, but there are other options that will do the trick as well. Click the image below for a list of vitamin B12 rich foods.
