Warning: Consult your doctor for real diet advice, NOT ME…this is just my journey with food.
Soooo when it comes to food I am pretty picky. Yes, I love junk food but I prefer to eat healthy on my own time. But I also hate meat, pork, turkey, ham, etc. I like chicken sometimes but not always and same goes with fish. With autoimmune disease can come food intolerances. During treatment, I have had to keep a food diary everyday correlating the past 3 months with how felt and what I ate that days. The results are astonishing. My doctor figured out I have a nut intolerance. Therefore, I can not have anything with nuts or nut products in it anymore. I feel empty but I have found useful replacements like sunflower butter (it’s actually really good).
This week I got to see my doctor. I told him I still don’t feel right after I eat sometimes so the next thing to go is dairy. Which will basically make me……VEGAN. Yes, this word has negative and positive connotations to it. But actually, I’m pretty excited. I watched this documentary on Netflix called What The Health and it really changed my perspective on food–for the good and bad. I am really sad to give up yogurt, cheese, and ice cream the most I think. If anyone has any good vegan tips or recipes I would greatly appreciate them!
