Vegan Lifestyles- Yay or Nay?

Are you vegan?

That is a question I get asked A LOT!

The answer is NO! I am not vegan. However, I eat a dairy-free and pescetarian diet (fish only) about 80% of the time.

Why? Because my body struggles to digest meat and dairy.

I learned this during my health transition when I began testing food allergies.

I started with one vegetarian meal a week and continued to increase the days for about a month.

I tackled dairy next with the same strategy.

What I learned was that my body couldn’t digest dairy very well and that my skin was much clearer when I didn’t consume meat.

I ultimately stopped purchasing meat and dairy products. In fact, I haven’t purchased meat/dairy since May of 2015.

This doesn’t mean that I will never eat it. For example, when dining out, I will enjoy a bite or two of a friends dish if offered and it looks appetizing. However, I rarely order a meal with meat from a restaurant because I’m unsure of the quality of the meat.

Here is another question I get asked a lot. Is a vegan and/or vegetarian diet healthier than a diet that a traditional diet?

NOPE!

I think that all “diets” and lifestyles can be seriously flawed.

Vegan/vegetarians tend to consume more sugar, soy, and carbs which should be eaten in moderation.

However, like any other lifestyle, a vegan lifestyle can be extremely healthy if the meals are prepared correctly with little sugar, soy, and carbs.

Many of my recipes are meatless, dairy-free, and delicious! Here are a few easy ones to get you started if you’re interested:

Falafel
Mexican Lentil Soup
Kale & Bean Soup

On a side note- I think that everyone can benefit from a vegan day or two throughout their week to give their digestive systems a rest!
