Challenge for vegans: B12 is necessary for nerve & red blood cells. Top dietary sources are beef/turkey/chicken/salmon/clams/oysters/crab--challenging for vegetarians! Top folic acid foods are fortified cereals/lentils/spinach/broccoli/white beans/asparagus/cantaloupe/eggs. As for zinc: again fortified cereals and pasta, back to oysters. Statistically, most Americans get zinc from red meat and poultry.
