It’s Not Easy Eating Green

Following a plant based diet doesn’t exactly make one mean, but it does make one a bit difficult at meal times. I try so hard not to be all vegan-ish, but my brain now knows that my stomach is going to rebel if I don’t carefully monitor what goes into my mouth.

Our recent vacation to Tennessee was tough in terms of diet. The first two days we were in Bristol I tried to go with the flow and eat like an omnivore. My body did not like me very much; though, and reacted in ways I won’t detail here. I got everything under control by eating strictly vegan for the remainder of the trip. Yes, I might’ve been a tad difficult, but my digestive tract thanked me.

It’s time for me to accept that I operate much better on a plant-based diet. I’m going to stop fighting it and embrace the change.

Peace, people.

    1. Part of my problem is that I can’t just eat vegetarian meals. It’s dairy products that cause the most problems, and dairy is in almost everything. Eating a vegan diet ensures I won’t ingest any dairy.

    1. Every now and again I think it’s all in my head. Then my stomach reminds me that isn’t the case at all. My husband is slowly coming around to believing me. That’s been the toughest part—he wasn’t totally convinced and kind of egged me on to “just eat.”

      1. I get that. I think accepting-for those dealing and those who support them, is hard when you’ve lived an entire life doing something completely the opposite. Why would anyone WANT to deal with all the distress physically though and just keep marching ahead with old ideas?? Have to believe what your body is trying to tell you and adjust, no matter what you could do “before” life is different now.

      1. After a serious operation years ago, my surgeon told me: if you ever feel unwell and somebody says you it is in your head, look for help asap. He saved my life at the last moment after the years of misdiagnosed pain. I am glad the diet works for you, and I am not a vegan. Yet 🙂

      2. Wow! So glad you had such a great advocate and surgeon. I feel so much better when I eat vegan. My food cravings have all but stopped, and that’s been a surprise.
