Last year i had blood tests and found I'm intollerant to egg, dairy, banana ad cashew nuts, had tried going vegan before but never kept to it, i also went to a vegan fair and have met lots of new friends thru vegan chat forums - got loads of advice and never looked back, i help out at these events now - I encourage people to try vegan food but woud never 'preach' I'm known as a vegan buddy!
It is hard eating out but today ive had vegan garlic bread and pizza with soya cheese out and coffee with soya milk I tend to ring places in advance and i do campaign for more vegan choices
I know Il stay vegan now - have read into the dairy industry and what goes on and theres no way personally i could eat dairy/egg again, feel so much healthier and happier now and my years of yo yo dieting and having IBS are finally over!
