I don't think I ever thought I'd be saying this, BUT I think I'm going vegan, well, at least vegetarian. AND IT'S ALL JENNY'S FAULT!!
Okay, not really, but kind of. Let me tell you why.
I posted back in September that I found a lump. I ended up cancelling my consultation with the specialist because I needed time to wrap my mind around what was happening and look into other options. Because I'm under 30, uninsured and the level of risk (or whatever) of the lump was considered low, I'm not eligible for any kind of assistance from anywhere.
In my searching I found some alternative treatments for fibroadenoma which include changing my diet, i.e. more fiber, less caffeine, etc. I was talking to Jenny and she recommended that I read The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone just to get ideas and figure out where to start. I just started reading it last week (thank you library, but I think I need my own copy). I don't have much spare time so it's taking me a while. But what I've read so far, I really like. It just makes sense. Read it for yourself and make up your own mind. Check out the website: The Kind Life.
I'm trying to make this lifestyle/diet change while living at home and I think it's going to be harder because of it. I won't be successful if I don't have my family's support. It'd be one thing if I would or could volunteer to cook dinner every night, but my schedule doesn't afford the luxury.
Are you a vegetarian or vegan? Please share any thoughts, recommendations or tips for me personally or to help get the family on board! I need all the help I can get. Thanks in advance!
