I cannot seem to tolerate dairy. At all. Anymore.
I had mild lactose intolerance but growing up, I could get away with eating that occasional slice of cheese and half a pint of ice cream. I could not consume an entire glass of dairy, that's all.
NOW-even that minute amount of dairy in drink premixes upsets my stomach for 5 hours straight!
This is great since I have an excuse to escape the cruel dairy food, but will this cause inconvenience to the people around me when preparing my food?
I start to LOVE raw food, bit by bit.
I actually find that raw carrots and tomatoes taste way better than the cooked version. I enjoy some salad and veggie "pasta", though of course I can eat only tiny amounts (1 carrot and 1 cucumber rather than half a pound of them as pasta for example). Somehow I still can't eat peppers, cruciferous veggies and mushrooms raw-I find them disgusting.
A raw breakfast energises me-a LOT! Best for stay-up seasons, but...
Does a raw diet must contain ONLY organic produce? I can't afford all organic-the price is 5x higher than the conventional counterparts.
My cravings for cakes and cookies in chocolate has just gone.
Funny, I don't seem to crave cakes and cookies that often now. I used to indulge in pastries as a cheat meal once a week, but now, hey, I find those in the shops like cardboard and disgusting. A leafy, colourful salad seems to be calling my name all the time. I don't know if this is weird for a twenty-year-old-I mean, it just happened!
However, I always crave for popsicles... cravings for cold food are always there although my stomach hates it a lot.
I give up eggs, hopefully this can go on forever...
which is a challenge since I used to love eggs. I still love them but I am determined to quit it due to the cruelty of the egg industry, and for beauty (LOL but yea, eggs gives me pimples). I hope my mum is not offended by this. I have a hard time explaining to her that I don't eat eggs. My friends expressed concern on me not eating eggs but, hey, I'm still alive, a month after being eggless.
Will not eating eggs interfere with travelling? I dream to travel to some countries like Australia and Spain and I hope that it will materialize. Hehe. If it materializes though, I might get weird stares from other people... Heck, even in my country, Malaysia, I have been given countless weird stares and concerns for being eggless-even right in my class!
