there are no reliable sources other than supplements, supplements and supplements (under the tongue, patch, shot, capsule, gum). non-dairy milks & bread are sometimes fortified with B12.

You can also get some from the fake meats which have added B12. Gardein is a great example having almost 50% to 80% of your daily requirement (per the FDA) per serving.

Mushrooms are the only foods that contain B12, but it contains too little and you would need to supplement.

I highly suggest taking 3000mcg a week of the methylcobalamin type supplement. Why so much? Because our bodies absorb very little of what we take in. USDA recommends 2.4mcg daily, but we actually need around 8 or 9mcg, but we actually need a lot more because our bodies do not absorb much of what we take in.
