For the last 30+ days or so I have been eating a vegan diet basically. I basically cut out eggs and A2 dairy like goats milk cheese and occasional turkey or fish.
It wasn’t that hard because I was at one point a vegetarian for 10+ years.
I had read some bad things about eggs and decided to test it out.
Well, it really depends on what you read, because there is a lot of different information out there. To some eggs are a super food and to others not.
How do I feel?
I don’t really feel any different, not stronger or weaker. I didn’t really gain or lose weight. Instead of eating 4-6 eggs a day and a little bit of cheese I ate more nuts, seeds and carbohydrates from mostly sweet potatoes.
I have tried the ketogenic diet, vegetarian diet, the plant paradox diet, intermittent fasting and now a vegan diet which wasn’t so different from the diet that I was already on.
I’d say my diet is rough combination of all those diets with fasting one day a week and occasional longer bouts.
I have been making these really yummy pancake like thingies with:
- sweet potatoes
- nut/seed flours from: almonds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds or chia seeds
- tapioca flour
- coconut powder
- and a little stevia
I used to add eggs to them too, but I found the addition of tapioca flour to work great at holding everything together while giving it a crispy outer and chewy center.
I’d say for the nut flours that almond and pumpkin seed are the best. I bought a coffee grinder to grind all the seeds up which is great for making flour.
You could sprinkle that flour/meal on all kinds of things.
I think grinding them also makes them more digestible, easier on your teeth and according to some grinding may reduce the phytic acid. I also started to soak them too for the same reason.
I am pretty content being a mostly vegetarian. I am not planning on becoming a militant vegan or anything. I just wanted to test it out.
