Why I decided to try the Vegan Diet
After coming back from my recent trip, my eczema got worse. It was already getting worse before I left.
I wasn’t able to enjoy my trip to the fullest. I was constantly irritated, itching at night and woke up with some sore skin. Showering stung like hell. Throughout that trip, I knew I needed to change something drastically. Everything I was doing in the past sort of stopped working after awhile.
Throughout my research on how to manage/cure my eczema, I saw several posts/videos about individuals going vegan to cure their eczema. At first, I always dismissed going vegan. Cutting out that many foods seemed daunting. How do I explain to people that I stopped eating meat when I loved my garlic parmesan chicken wings, jerk chicken and occasional ribs?! I wouldn’t even my recognize myself.
At this point, I am ready to try anything to improve the quality of skin because. Can’t let my eczema take over my life!
Day 1 of going vegan didn’t really hit me. I just ate some bananas, made an apply celery juice and had rice and some vegetarian curries. I was also too tired from the jet lag to worry at this point. My skin is still a mess, red, dry, irritated and lightly oozing at times.
Day 2, made some celery apple lemon juice for breakfast. For lunch had some leftovers from yesterday and started to wonder what I would eat for dinner. At first, I started feeling overwhelmed. What the hell do I cook? All I ever knew was bacon and eggs. I started to look up some easy recipes to keep it simple. I made some rice, roasted cauliflowers and sweet potatoes. I do miss my chicken but I know its for the better.
Day 3, made some celery apple blueberry lemon juice. For lunch, I had some rice, roasted asparagus and deep-fried plantain chips cooked in coconut oil. I’m also drinking a lot more water than I usually do. Skin doesn’t seem as red and definitely not as dry. My chest is flaking quite a bit but it is soft skin once I exfoliate the area.
I’ve tried a lot of treatments and diets in the past, so I decided why not give this a try. The key is to keep trying something until it works!
