My Dairy Free Gluten Free Life!
My Dairy Free Gluten Free Life
My Dairy Free Gluten Free Life is finally official! I have been trying for a long time to get Facebook to change my Facebook page from My Vegan Gluten Free Life to My Dairy Free Gluten Free Life and they finally did it yesterday! You have probably noticed that I’ve changed my other social medias to Dairy Free GF Life.
What does this mean to you, my vegan readers? I plan to continue posting on healthy eating and living and will continue to post Vegan as well as recipes with other protein. I found that since I wasn’t “pure” Vegan using eggs and honey…which of course I know are not considered Vegan….making allowances in the recipes didn’t seem to be enough for some.
Also since I began a journey for health and found, for “MY” body, that eating high protein with low carbohydrates is the only way I have been able to lose weight, I have added some animal protein in my diet. I feel so good now. I can’t believe that even my HDL came up and my LDL’s went down as did my total cholesterol, eating animal protein!! Go figure. So I am changing the name of my blog to totally reflect how I am now eating and plan to continue to eat. Chicken, fish and eggs have been added to my diet for protein, organic of course.
I am intolerant to dairy so I cannot eat dairy, whey or casein and in my recipes I will continue to have NO DAIRY. I am also intolerant to gluten so in my recipes I will continue to have NO GLUTEN. But you may find that I post more recipes with chicken, fish or eggs. I will continue to post Vegan recipes as well since I continue to eat Vegan meals. Eating High Protein, Low Carb Vegan is doable but I tire of Vegan protein shakes 3 times a day and you will see that shift reflected in my recipes. I will post an alternative to the animal protein that may be used. There are so many wonderful animal protein substitutes available!
Why don’t I just use the Vegan meat alternatives that are available in the market you may ask. Let me tell you I would dearly love to but every meat alternative I have seen except 1 contains gluten. There are 3 VEGAN meat alternatives that do not contain gluten that I am aware of. I use one now, Butler’s Soy Curls and I love them. My Dairy Free Gluten Free Life will be sampling a new gluten free meat alternative soon with a review. It is brand new. The 3rd is very hard for me find and the company that makes it does not sell samples or regular product except to retail stores. So maybe in time I will be able to use these products for meat (gluten-free) substitutes.
