Hello all! Since it has now been 5 years since I’ve changed my diet to being as plant based as possible, I wanted to share with you why and what lead up to it. Not to mention my pitfalls and temptations, and also a change in my blog coming in April. It might get long, but I’ll try not to add too many details.
I have always had a lot of intolerances and food allergies. I was put on allergy shots when I was in Kindergarten and continued until I was in 5th grade. Along with taking medications, and then constantly getting sinus, ear, chest, and throat infections. It would also effect my eczema, making it worse and painful, drying out my skin, or it would break out more. Allergies and and intolerances also cause emotional symptoms too – being overwhelmed, depression, anxiety, sadness, etc. Along with feeling run-down and exhausted. These were things I always dealt with as a kid. It would get irritating especially when I wasn’t allowed to go outside certain times, or dig into some of the foods I really wanted, but I never felt like I missed out on anything.
