Dinner Experiment

Friday, January 25, 2013
I did an experiment at dinner tonight. I did it because I mostly haven't told my husband I have gone vegan and because I actually wanted to see how meat, cheese and even ice cream made me feel after I ate them.

We went to dinner at Jersey Mike's tonight. I could have gotten a veggie sub without cheese but I wanted to see what the meat and cheese actually does to me. I ordered the rueben sandwich and it was great tasting, at the time, but it only took about 20 minutes for me to feel like complete crap. I felt bloated and gassy almost immediately. It was not the best feeling in the world. After dinner we headed over to the ice cream shop and I wondered what ice cream would do to me as well. I am worried I might be lactose intolerant. I didn't throw up or anything with the ice cream but it sure didn't make me feel good at all. It made my stomach worse and I had to use the restroom not long after we got home.

It is pretty safe to say that those foods are not going to make me feel better at all. I sure felt better after every single other meal this week which was actually vegan meals. I had to do this experiment for myself. I know what these do to me now and I plan to make the conscious decision to stay away from those foods all together.
