The vegan diet definitely receives a lot of hate, honestly not sure why but it does. I’ll be honest, I only gave this diet a go because my skin was having some major issues and I needed a permanent fix, beyond skin care and topical treatments. I’ve always heard to treat from the inside out so that’s what I did.
For a lot of people, including myself, dairy can irritate the skin and cause bloating. I have been dairy free for about a year now, with the exception of the cheat day pizza once a week (I can’t get rid of it.) I have noticed a dramatic change in my skin as well as my bloating since I took it out of my diet.
There are many assumptions that vegan eat nothing because there is nothing for them to eat, FALSE HUNDRED TIMES FALSE. If anything I eat more now than I did before.
Here is just a little of what I picked up today, I usually get way more but I already had most of what I get at home. I just needed things I had run out of for this trip.
