(massive amount of great info)
I know many people here are vegetarians, I am not, but within my research I have come across some good stuff. Unfortunately vegetarian diets are low in certain nutrients but I have been reading that simply adding gelatin can basically solve all those issues. Obviously gelatin comes from animals but I found that kosher gelatin is actually doable:www.vrg.org/nutshell/faqingredients.htm#ko

(what it actually is though technical)
I get mine from Great Lakes Gelatin. They do have kosher. I did not post a link because it goes directly to the product page and I am not sure about SP rules on posting links directly to products.
And for whatever it is worth...
I have been seeking (and finding) ways to get all my nutrition from food and NOT supplementation. I did an experiment for myself. Glucosamine basically saved my knees but I am, again, tired of taking supplements so stopped them and added gelatin in my diet as well as bone broth (for the non-vegetarian types). I have had ZERO pain in my knees and joints since doing this!
Anyway, I don't believe in cookie cutter diets which is why I am always keeping my eyes open for things that work for everyone, not just me. Vegetarians believe as strongly in their nutritional values as I do in my grass fed, organic views. So when I saw this info, I just really wanted to pass it on. Although muscle meats are still a part of my diet I am finding I am leaning more and more toward gelatin and dairy sources to meat my protein needs.
