Since starting this whole journey, I have been pretty good with cravings. They bother me for a little while but then I eventually forget them.
Before starting this, dairy and dairy based items filled my list of favourites…ice cream, shortbread, pound cake, cream cheese, and my favourite…cheesecake. And this is just part of the list (can you tell I am a dessert girl?).
Since I have given up dairy (well almost, I still battle the cheese thing at times :)), I don’t really crave it at all. Milk makes me sick at the thought of drinking it…ugh. I know if I do go back to the way things were, my skin would flare up again and I just would not feel good. After having something like that out of your diet for so long, adding it back can cause havoc on your system!
Luckily, I have found some amazing vegan blogs on the net and have been able to find some wonderful vegan cookbooks. Alternatives to all of my favourites exist and I am looking forward to making and trying all of them!
So I am interested to know, when you first became a vegan, what did you crave, or what do you still crave?
