I’m Orthodox, and for 54 consecutive days a year, I’m required to go Vegan. BUT, on top of that, I have Oral Allergy Syndrome, and I’m allergic to anything that doesn’t go through processing (fruit, vegetables, nuts). Check out my blog and comment with any suggestions please!
Thank you so much!
Thanks for stopping in, Marina, and for taking the time to comment. You have brought a few firsts with you. I never heard of Orthodox Christians, oral allergy syndrome or fish eating vegans before. The first two were interesting, but I’m not so sure about that last one.
In your 4th post you mentioned “the best source of this good protein is in red meat”. I wanted to mention that there are plenty of great plant-based protein sources out there that don’t come with the drawbacks of animal products (high in fat, high in cholesterol, promotes inflammation, cancer, diabetes, obesity…). Surely there must be one or two of them that you aren’t allergic to:
beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, spirulina, quinoa, soy beans, tempeh, seitan, tofu, soy milk, almond milk, help milk, hemp seeds, asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, broccoli, whole grains, kale, avocado, oatmeal…
Bottom line, if you were getting all of your calories from plant sources, and you were getting enough calories (your desired healthy weight x 10 = minimum caloric intake for a lazy day), it would be virtually impossible for you to not get enough protein.
I hope you find something useful in my ramblings. Take care.
Love, Peace & Understanding
