Amsterdam has gained the status of the “bicycle capital of the world” among some and it definitely has delivered in this regard.

Thankfully, we can put this right by understanding we might not be at our healthiest and consuming foods which pay back the debt. Here are foods which will replace the nutrients vegans no longer get from meat and dairy.
