Just skimming, there are some solid ideas that are coming from a science-army balancing the available evidence. You deserve reinforcement of the ones with solid evidence.

B12 supplementation is a must. You're going to feel a laundry list of things without it. 2000mcg of the sublingual dose once a week before eating anything. You're going to get the most out of it this way.

Stay away from 'vegan' foods that have labels with more than a few ingredients. The food industry is happy to sell junk and slap the words 'organic' or 'vegan' on it to satisfy our built-in need to conserve energy with convenience foods. Impossible burgers should not be considered food. It's just another product on the inflammatory spectrum. All the 'vegan' junk out there will also have you feeling run down.

Stick with a variety of colorful plants. No ingredient list is necessary. Ditch the supplements except for the sublingual b12, 2000IU vitamin d3, and an algae-derived DHA.

Also, don't even consider yourself vegan. Vegans eat vegan junk food most of the time. And the word vegan inspires competition which gets everyone exactly nowhere. Just be a human that eats humbly. Leave the pride for people with midlife crises to address.

I find I feel both mentally and physically sluggish if I eat a diet with too much fat in it. I also feel a lack of focus if I haven't brushed my teeth recently enough. This is just my personal (and subjective) experience though, and I'm definitely not an expert on nutrition.

I have also heard of people having issues like this from food allergies, so you may want to try and investigate to see if you have a food allergy or a food sensitivity of some type.

Here is a great website with abundant information about the health benefits of a whole food plant-based diet (a type of vegan diet):
