I haven’t been vegan in a while and I’m not entirely sure I ever will be again. On the one hand this upsets me and on the other I feel a excited at the prospect of eating everything I please. I’m conflicted and it’s one of those decisions I can’t make over night. The fact is I’m extremely good at cooking, to the point where I think it’s a shame to exclude certain foods and experiences. This is also combined with the fact that I’m naturally a small framed person and find it difficult to keep to a healthy weight when vegan, my body craves iron and I never seemed to get enough. It’s a conundrum because I preferred the lightness veganism gave me, the healthy energy that circulated within me. I miss how my body felt nourished and clean and harmonious. I miss feeling excited at running and taking a yoga class. Yet I feel far better being a heavier weight. However when I survey the pros and cons I see a lot more cons in my new diet. Yes food is delicious and there to be enjoyed but yes my skin is spotty, my head is foggy, my ass has doubled and my tummy is softer than it should be! I’m definitely keen to get back to a more wheel food plant based diet but once in a while I’ll post naughty, fattening, meaty fun. Marvel at these photos from valentines day.
