I’m wondering if any other vegans are here, and how do you cope if basically all veggies have you running to the throne?
Have a good evening!
Good luck and keep us posted with how it goes! Best to you, Elizabeth (team member)
Then I had to become vegetarian, so at least I could get protein from eggs and cheese, as I could no longer tolerate nuts in large enough quantities, tofu, seeds, or pulses, legumes,, many grains and quinoa for protein sources.
Sadly, I had to go one step further and start to eat fish again, because that is one food which is the gentlest on my gut. I eat it plain cooked (steamed in a little water and with salt only)
Recently I find cheese problematical so had to stop eating it. I may try again at some point. Eggs are still tolerated okay and I am very grateful for that.
I miss vegan food very much. One of my favourites was a simple red lentil stew. It will be a happy day if or when I can ever eat that again.
I have had IBS-C for many years since I was a teenager. I have been vegan for 9 years and eat a breakfast every day of oatmeal, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, apple, walnuts with Vanilla soy milk. It provides me with the fiber I need and I have been much better. I also stay well-hydrated. I'm sorry for the ppl who have IBS-D which is probably worse. I hope we can all find a cure someday.
