I was curious as to ways to get protein and whatnot from foods if I am unable to eat many of the fortified foods.
My Good Food
The idea of becoming vegan has always been so daunting to me because of these allergies. Hema, no problem being vegetarian. You can eat cheese and milk there are vitamins from animals in there. There is all the protein you need in vegetables the ones you are not allergic to and funnily enough when I eat out the vegan option is also gluten free.
Seems unfair for the meat eating gluten allergy sufferers. So on this page that was mentioned. I lost weight and felt better going vegetarian to vegan, probably because all this time my body has disliked milk. Then it problematic to eat out after cutting milk from my diet because its snuck into everything then I get diarrea or throw up. So if you have allergies it might be trace elements in the food your eating rather than the diet itself. You are probably not eating enough variety because you have to watch out for so many things but after a transition period, you will have learn how to shop and cook.
I also have a vegan suppliment and they have to be allergy tested, maybe you could find a source you trust. I probably eat many more types of food now I am vegan particularly fats. Are you allowed to eat avocados and hummus? If you find a lot of foods difficult to digest you may need a prebiotics or probiotics. Digestion gets worse with age because we become depleted in enzymes. Thanks for commenting, Heather! It is indeed problematic to eat out while making sure to avoid dairy products.
Depending on the restaurant, you can usually find a few things at the least which fit your dietary needs. Avocados and hummus are some of our favourite foods and are excellent as a snack with other veggies, whole grain crackers, etc or as a breakfast option. We were just talking about the need for probiotics the other day — will be looking them up today to find some suitable for us! Your email address will not be published.

Thanks for the info Laura! Hello, I have been seriously thinking about becoming vegan, by way of vegetarian. Thank you for any info and time on this! As a bonus, there we I read this book months ago but haven't been able to write about it because it makes me too nauseous. As a bonus, there were some really good recipes in the back.
I'm pretty sure this book also had lots of extra references websites, additional reading and places to find information in the back. I honestly think anyone who would like to eat this way should have this book around as a reference!! Sidenote -- I also think everyone should look into the health benefits of eating this way. Try reading "The China Study".
I found this book in a bookshop in Christchurch while on holiday in the New Forest, England. It was one of those browsing bookshop visits and I thought then that it looked sufficiently interesting to memorise the title and authors. Wind forward several years and I thought of it again. By some miracle, I remembered the details and bought the book. I found it informative, intelligent, thorough and interesting. By far the best case for vegetarianism I have read.
I went vegetarian for a couple of yea I found this book in a bookshop in Christchurch while on holiday in the New Forest, England. I went vegetarian for a couple of years! This book is worth reading if you are considering going vegetarian. For me, vegetarianism didn't last, save that it changed my diet long term even as an occasional meat eater and enjoyer of the odd bacon butty now and then. I've kept the book and still come back to it. Jul 17, Maggie rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction. Aug 07, Casey marked it as to-read Recommends it for: anyone looking for a healthier diet.
I thought that this was a pretty good book, overall. There is a lot of information on getting your vitamins and other necessary nutrients. It really read more like a book about how to eat a healthy diet and letting those facts speak for themselves, rather than a preachy "meat-is-cruel" diatribe except for a couple of spots. There is a lot of good information about what you need to eat healthfully, and where to get it. Overall , I really feel that this is a good "vegetarianism for beginners", or I thought that this was a pretty good book, overall.

It had so much information compacted into a boring never ending stream of words. I wanted to finish it, and I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't. That's very painful for me, I absolutely hate leaving things unfinished.
