I recommend that you speak with your doctor or a dietitian to negotiate your allergies and your vegan lifestyle.
I don't have allergies (apart from hayfever) and I have a very varied diet but I found recent attempts to adopt a vegan diet resulted in developing a rare form of anaemia.
To meet protein recommendations, the typical adult male vegan needs only 2.5 to 2.9 grams of protein per 100 calories and the typical adult female vegan needs only 2.1 to 2.4 grams of protein per 100 calories. These recommendations can be easily met from vegan sources.

- legumes (i.e. soy, alfalfa, carob, any and all beans, etc.)
- tomatoes and many other fruits
- many nuts
i want to be vegan, but can only handle vegetarianism due to my allergies (i.e. i eat dairy and eggs). so in terms of protein, what else can i eat to make sure i get all my nutrients without having to take artificial supplements all of the time? i do drink hemp shakes and eat quinoa (although the taste is awful to me), but what other options do i have in becoming a true vegan if i cut out beans, soy, and nuts?
