I’m hoping to gather some advice from those of you who have followed or made a gradual transition to a plant-based diet. I’ve been a vegetarian for nearly two decades and I also have a milk allergy. I have significant gastrointestinal issues and have worked closely with a specialist to narrow down the cause(s). Recently I had a food sensitivity test done and it was revealed that I have a high sensitivity to eggs. Note that this was a real allergen test conducted by a doctor, not a hocus pocus one where you essentially find sensitivities to nearly everything on the list. Basically, it found what I expected—issues with milk-based products and surprisingly, eggs.
In an effort to curb my suffering (I have extreme pain and bloating whenever I eat ‘anything’), I’m going to try and eliminate them and see if it helps. For those of you who made the switch, how did you go about it? I’m not too happy about this prospect as I was perfectly happy being vegetarian and had no intentions of eliminating more food groups. I would appreciate any tips and advice. Thank you in advance 😊
