So, I’ve been thinking about making some changes to our diet/life style. I found out at my last check up that my cholesterol is very high, like, if I don’t get it down then I have to go on medication kind of high. And I am SURE there is something wrong with Mr. G, ’cause if I have problems then he MUST have problems too, but he refuses to go to the doctor so I don’t have any proof of my theory. And it wouldn’t hurt either of us to lose some weight either.
Plus, I am concerned about the boys, their health and their eating habits. The more that I read about the effects of meat and dairy products on our health the more sure I am that we need to begin limiting and eliminating animal products from what we eat.
Now, don’t get me wrong, we like us some meat! But, Mr. G and I have talked about it and decided that this is something we want to try. I think that it is going to be hardest for me, because I have to do the cooking, and I have very few vegan/vegetarian recipes!
So, I am asking for help…have any of you made the switch to vegetarian or vegan? Do you have any recipes and/or tips you could share? I also want to cut out dairy products and make the switch to non-dairy options. Any of these products that your kids love?
I would love ANY advice you have! Thanks so much!
