I am a vegetarian, have been for decades.
I am not in a lot of pain. I've been treated for chronic pain and fibromyalgia for years. I take about 5 different medications now for pain and high cholestorol.
I have decided to try doing a gluten-free, vegan way of eating for a month to see if this changes anything.
And then I discovered this site! I feel like I'm definitely on the right track.
I was wondering, though, about almond milk, tofu, nuts....I think I've read now that nuts are out. What kind of 'milks' are in, then? Just how terrible would it be if I had some organic raw almond butter? or almond milk? or tofu?'
My family is not too happy about me not having almond milk and/or nuts. They think i need it for protein...I know from reading the McDougal information that protein is everywhere.
I do get weak and shaky if I haven't eaten during the day a lot. I used to have larabars (raw organic bars with about 4 ingred, usually dried fruit and nuts) or a 'hit' of 'milk.' What do I do now?
Thanks for 'listening' to this long post. I'm just trying to find some information....and support.
