i want to be vegan, but can only handle vegetarianism due to my allergies (i.e. i eat dairy and eggs). so in terms of protein, what else can i eat to make sure i get all my nutrients without having to take artificial supplements all of the time? i do drink hemp shakes and eat quinoa (although the taste is awful to me), but what other options do i have in becoming a true vegan if i cut out beans, soy, and nuts?
Maybe you can try liver and gallbladder cleanse (the one that drinks apple juice and olive oil) which may help your allergies. I personally have done four cleanses but cannot comment on the allergies since I have none. But the cleanses did help improving my digestion.
Here are the cleansing recipes and FAQ: http://curezone.com/gallstones/default.asp
Make sure you read thoroughly to decide whether you are suitable and have confidence to do it. I personaly prefer this method (http://curezone.com/cleanse/liver/huldas_recipe.asp
) but on top of it, I also drink apple juice for 5 days before doing it. It's one liter of apple juice per day for 5 days, it's better if you can juice yourself but I drink unsweetened packaged juice.
Here's a nice book if you need the reasoning behind liver cleansehttp://liverandgallbladderflush.com/
