Some say eating only a diet raw food is best. Some say eat only fruit, carefully combined, never frozen, always fresh and no sweeteners, not even honey or agave. Others claim avoiding animal products is the way to go, but freely eat gluten and natural sweeteners. There are vegetarians who mix and match, swearing anything but organic will poison you.
Vegan, Vegetarian, Fruitarian…
All this investigating/reading began when I was hunting up new recipes. Who knew so much was out there! I became confused selecting ingredients. I couldn’t seem to fit into any of the categories. They all seem to say something different. Each article I’ve read today touts one aspect over another. So what’s right for me? And what’s doable while living alongside my large family?
Some of this information was so contradicting I started to doubt what I was doing. I’m not sure what’s right anymore. Traveling over spring break didn’t help. Eating differently from everyone else at the table makes them feel a little uncomfortable. I’ve noticed that my new plant-based diet brings other folks a lot of guilt. Neither of which I want.
So what am I to do? Call it quits on vacation? I’m still working on that. Hanging in there.
