For our #effyourfearfoods Friday, I'm gonna share with you just a tinsy bit of my relationship with Vegan foods.
I have had an off and on relationship w veganism, even tho I'm majorly plant based, I'm not 100% #vegan.
I'm ok w that and any bullying or calling me a murderer in the comments will get instantly deleted.
I come from having an eating disorder, which means veganism can be a complexity in my head, one which you the reader are not there for.
Because of our fucked up #dietculture I am still unlearning that FAT IS ACTUALLY NOT BAD FOR YOU, THAT YOU CAN EAT CARBS FREELY, that the combination of the both does wreck havoc on MY system.
Most vegan alternatives have high amounts of fat and/or carbs in them, they're tasty but sometimes they scare that fatphobic part of my brain believing if I eat this I will gain weight = gaining weight won't make me loveable = I can't do that, I need to be loved.
Truth is, all of that is BS. It's far more simple (which also intrinsically entwined w complexity bc EACH body and mind is different) and vegan alternatives trigger me less and less, choosing them more and more.
Also, I don't need tips on how to choose more vegan products, why I should be 100% vegan, why you believe what I'm doing isn't good enough. I'm chill thanks ✌️🤘🤙
Do your own thing with your body and your mind. I respect you.
