Can I get all of the nutrition that I need from a vegan diet without taking vitamins?

    With the exception of vitamin B12, it does appear possible that with some effort a healthy vegan diet can be crafted without the use of vitamin supplements. However, a vegan diet would benefit from the inclusion of supplements as a means of adding convenience even for things that can be obtained from non-animal sources but with greater difficulty, like zinc, iron and calcium.

    It will be difficult. Vitamins B-12 and D will almost certianly need to be supplemented if you are eliminating dairy in addition to meat. Protein can be found in many vegan foods such as beans and peanuts. A daily multivitamin is helpful for almost any diet. Keep in mind that just because someone eats meat does not mean that they automatically get all the vitamins they need either.

    It is possible for a healthy vegan diet to provide all the nutrition that one requires. Vitamin B 12 can be found in “certain yeast extracts, veggieburger mixes, breakfast cereals, vegetable margarines and soya milks.” Vitamin D can be had from the sun! And also “vegetable margarines, some soya milks and certain other foods which are fortified with the vitamin”.
