Going Vegan

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

My health, and the decline of it, has me finally deciding to go back a vegan whole foods type od diet. I had tried it 2 years ago for about 4 months. I felt the best I had in years. But, I ended up giving in to the temptations and the ease of the old standards. How pathetic is that?

As I mentioned in my blurb about who I am...I am maxed out on my BP meds. This past week my BP has been chronically high. I have been suffering with facial and fingertip tingling, headaches and nausea. Enough is enough!!!!!

Starting yesterday I am back to eating a vegan whole foods diet. My kids are cheering me on and my husband is even giving his blessing and encouraging me. They all saw the benefit of this way of eating for me 2 years ago and they have been trying to nudge me back into it ever since.

If it is anything like last time I should start to feel some results in about 3 weeks. The one thing about this diet is I am not to worry so much about calories as before. IT is about eating whole foods with no added fats.

I've already made my menu and shopping list for the week. The husband will happy because there is no tofu in any of it. emoticon

    This is fantastic news for your health!! I wish you the best and will be cheering you on!! I went vegan over 2 years ago now, and have been loving it (and the food) ever since! One of my favourite books has been McDougall's "The Starch Solution"... his wife Mary makes the absolute best tasting dishes!! I also love the "Engine 2" recipes as well as those from "vegan comfort foods from around the world". Wishing you the best transition over... luckily your family is cheering you on, this will be a big help!!
