And that will be possible if you rely on whole foods, natural foods and some items included in non vegan diet. You will have to add variety to your diet so that you can get benefit of all the B vitamins. B1 is found in legumes, green vegetables and eggs where as B2 is found in milk, cheese and meat. Peanuts and potatoes are rich in B3. Poultry foods, milk and yogurt have ample of B12. You must make a diet plan which covers all the B vitamins so that you get a wholesome meal full of nutrients.
