Hello all...I hope that none of this crosses the line as far as
what's appropriate for the list, but I really don't know who else to
appeal to for help. So, I apologize in advance...
My story -- I've been lacto-ovo for some time now and have just
recently decided to attempt the plunge into veganism. Do I still
call it veganism if I wear leather shoes and wool sweaters? I don't
want to offend anyone by misusing the term. Well, anyway, I've
decided to try to eliminate dairy and eggs. I would be very greatful
to anyone who has gone through this transition for advice, support,
and anything else. I would especially be interested in examples of
healthy, balanced daily menus. I want to be sure (especially at
first) that I'm eating enough of the right things every day. You can
e-mail me directly.
Also, I've been having alot of trouble with fatigue. I mean, by
afternoon I feel like I just can't even move anymore. My head feels
fuzzy, and my body weighs a ton. These problems began before I
abandoned dairy and eggs. Do I just need to eat more frequently to
maintain a stable blood sugar? My father, of course, says that I
need to 'vary my diet' and 'eat more protein' What he's really
saying is: 'Eat meat.' I refuse to believe that that is necessary or
even helpful. This is another reason that I would really appreciate
examples of what you guys eat in a typical day (and when you eat it).
Thanks so much.
By the way, I just made a great vegan casserole. I got the recipe
for the archives. It was originally written by Michelle Dick. I'll
post the recipe after this message.
I really am greatful to all of you, and especially to anyone who
responds to this. I hope you all are doing well.
