There is something you can do - buy free-range organic.

Carnivores are not a very good source of nutrition. That is a much better reason not to eat dogs and cats. Herbivorous animals are much more nutritious.

Genetically engineered ugly animals made me lol.

The problem is this stuff tends to be twice or even three times as expensive. I do not have an unlimited budget (ok I am poor).

Yeah that is annoying. Healthy food is always more expensive. Since switching to a healthier diet, my cost of food has probably gone up 5x.

The main problem with Vegans is Omega3.

They have pretty much no decent source of Omega 3. Vegetarians can at least hopefully get Pastured butter. They might have to add a lot of flaxseeds, which is not entirely a very healthy choice. Another option is to add Mustard oil, which is not entirely palatable to a lot of people. Another option is Canola, still not very good.

They should get a lot of supplementation. Zinc and B12 are a necessity, other than the regular D3/K2/magnesium/iodine.

Protein is not that much of a problem, as all plant matter contains protein, although in a smaller quantity. Just don't fill yourself with potatoes, and you should be fine.

A good choice is to get into traditional foods, like Idly Dosa (South Indian) and Tortillas/beans (Mexican). Idly Dosa in particular are made from fermented rice and lentils which means that there are less harmful lectins, and bio-availability of minerals is much more. These are also protein balanced.

I hope she is not a raw foodist Vegan ;-). That would be entirely stupid^Hinsane^H.

As long as she is running, and she has lots of coconut/olive/avocado oil, with decent supplementation. She should be fine. Running does burn a lot of glycogen, so that carbs will not be that big a problem if tempered with enough fats.
