I'm gonna jump right in to today's topic. I'm thinking about going vegan. Before anyone starts yelling at me in the comments, let me tell you why I'm thinking about it.
As you might already know, I have a milk allergy. No, not lactose intolerance. You can read about it here if you're confused. Anyway, no dairy at all for this girl. It's kind of hard to find dairy free foods that are truly dairy free. Most of the time I have to go with vegan foods to be on the safe side.
I feel tons better than before I found out about the allergy. I don't get hives when I eat anymore, and I don't feel sick! However, I've noticed that I tend to feel sick after eating eggs. Obviously it isn't a food allergy, but I think my body just doesn't like digesting eggs.
I'm also not a huge meat eater. Don't get me wrong, I'll eat a hamburger anytime, but I always feel that same bit of nauseousness after eating. Beef is just so heavy. Add on the fact that I don't like turkey, I've never been a pork lover, and chicken is a once a week thing for me, what's stopping me?!
I'm going to ask my doctor about extra vitamins I might need to take, but I think I'm going to try living the vegan life. I think my body will thank me. I might have a cheat day every once in a while, but the point is I want eat foods my body likes.
Are any of you vegan?
