Veg Update

lisa_the_vegetarian

So about my vegetarian lifestyle…well…things are going ok, not perfect, but ok. I have done stellar at not eating red meat, turkey, eggs or pork, but have had chicken and fish a little bit. I knew it would be kind of difficult to quit cold turkey, and Im proud of how well I have done so far, I even went out for breakfast and just had one waffle and a fruit bowl…not ordering my beloved breakfast sausage.  I felt a little worried about consuming too much soy though, and I do eat a fair amount of fake meats (veggi chickn burgers, soy milk, veggie sausage patties, soy yogurt) does anyone who’s been a vegetarian for a while know much about how much soy one should eat, and how bad it is if you have too much? I bought a Spaghetti squash and an eggplant that I plan on making this weekend with a little spaghetti sauce and Almond Cheese (which by the way is really yummy!). So anyways I figure you do a little at a time, Ive been great cutting out the coffee and alcohol too (well minor lie cause I was craving a vanilla latte the other day so I had one) and Ive cut out a ton of the diet snack foods with artificial sweeteners and I bought Stevia to replace my Sweet in Low in iced tea! I have also been eating a small handful of raw almonds once a day with is good for yah.

I also wanted to say thanks for all the sweet words of support and wisdom from my readers. I love the comments and information you have all been giving me, and will take any advice you have on the subject!   XOXO morgan

  1. Skinny Bitch (and other sources) say that 1-2 servings of soy or soy based products per day is a good amount. I struggle with this soy issue as well, a lot of people say the estrogen in soy is causing women problems, so don’t go soy crazy, but 1-2 servings is a-ok. 🙂
