When I quit being a vegan after some months, the first time I went back to dairy I had a caramel frappachino from Starbucks. I didn't feel sick then either, just really FULL. It felt.. heavy. I can't really explain it :/
A while ago i went to a restaurant and ordered the vegetarian chilli, after trying it i noticed it tasted a bit strange. I asked the staff if it was defenantly vegetarian and the person who worked there checked the menu and said yes. So i carried on eating it. The next day i woke up feeling really sick and had a bad stomach ache. I was convinced they'd put some meat products in my chilli. I complained but never heard back, i refuse to go to that restaurant anymore, even though it aint confirmed it was meat i dont know what else would cause me to feel sick and have a stomach ache.
maybe it wasnt that they put meat in your food. theres always a chance of spoiled food.
My attitude was, as long as I have to, I will enjoy it! I didn't enjoy eating it, or the profound dizziness and nausea that followed.
1. What kind of ingredient? Broth or stock usually doesn't make me as sick as animal products such as lard; chicken stock upset my stomach less than beef stock (that waiter swore up and down the onion soup was vegan); and a few shrimp made me more ill than an unfortunate chicken/soy nugget mix up.
2. Did I know I was eating meat? In both cases, (yes and no) I have gotten sick. However, when I was upset about it I've felt much worse, mostly because for hours after the meal I worried about getting sick. I became completely vegetarian from being pescetarian for years simply because I couldn't find fresh enough fish. When I went to the beach after about half a year without fish, I wolfed down my favorite sandwich, a shrimp burger. Slightly sick, but I brushed it off, not thinking it had anything to do with my sandwich. A few shrimp cocktails later I was sure, and even though I had eaten fewer shrimp that time, I felt much worse than before.
other than that, i haven't consumed enough meat, dairy, or egg to create a real reaction in my body. i can usually tell if an animal product is in my food at this point and will, of course, promptly stop eating it.
