I decided to make a conscious effort for 5 days to avoid all animal products. In doing this, I became very grateful that I do not have a severe food allergy that would require this much attention. It is time consuming to always read the labels (especially on products I know and love) and the disappointment when I find that one of the ingredients is milk. I did find that cooking vegan is quite easy, the hard part is having healthy options that are on the go. I plan to incorporate 1 dinner a week that is vegan but I will return to eating chicken, diary and eggs.Everyone is entitled to their own food preference and I am quite happy with being a flexitarian.
