it’s been a while

after a long absence from my blog  and just generally no feel to write about how I’m feeling or throwing a pity party for one here’s a post that I’ve been wanting to right for a while…

Not only because I feel much better but because I feel it would be good for anyone who suffers from this dreaded disease to try this as well…

In August 2013 I changed my diet to a Vegan diet as my body stopped processing the Meat protein that I was consuming. (staunch afrikaans girl = big ass meat lover) and I can honestly say I FEEL MUCH BETTER! 

I havent been back to my Gynae since the last time I saw him, haven’t had any Endo Symptoms and I truly believe its due to my new diet…

What’s the difference between Vegan & Vegetarian?

Comparison chart

 

  • Vegan
  • VEGETARIAN
Introduction Veganism is a philosophy and compassionate lifestyle whose adherents seek to exclude the use of animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose. Vegans endeavor not to use or consume animal products of any kind. Vegetarianism is the practice of a diet that excludes meat (including game and slaughter by-products; fish, shellfish and other sea animals; and poultry). There are several variants of the diet, some of which also exclude eggs.
Diet Vegans do not consume meat, eggs, milk, honey or any food that is derived from animals. Do not eat meat or fish. Some do consume dairy and some vegetarians consume eggs. Lacto-vegetarian: eating dairy products. Ovo-vegetarian: eating eggs. Do not eat gelatin or other animal by products.
Products Do not use any animal derived products, e.g. fur, leather, wool, etc. Do not condone the use of animal testing. While vegetarians do not eat meat, most vegetarians do not mind using other animal-derived products, e.g. fur, leather, or wool.
