As some might know if they saw me on the Intro section, I've gone vegan for a week now. I went straight from meat to veganism. Now, what I eat really isn't that much different from before. I've always liked and ate Indian & Chinese food, lots of spicy things and curry and all. But since I've been cooking, everything I make makes me terribly sick. I'll be in pain for several hours. So I'll only eat one cooked meal then just something light later at night, like fresh fruit. Now I can eat the boil-in-bag thing of chickpea curry but those are $2.99 each so it's cheaper to make curry myself, but I'm still eating curried chickpeas and that makes me sick and causes pain. The pre-made stuff doesn't bother me. I made a stir fry of just carrots, green onions, and mushrooms with soy sauce and that made me sick and caused pain. I've eaten spaghetti with pre-made peanut sauce a million times before I went vegan and never had a problem with it. I make my own peanut sauce and feel sick now. I don't want to go back to eating meat. I've never liked much meat and I don't want to support the butchery that has to take place to give me a cut of meat every day. Plus I wanted to get healthy before it's too late. I'm not eating hardly anything now because I feel sick most of the day. I don't know what to do. I hate feeling sick and especially being in pain. The ONLY thing that is different now from my meat-eating days is that I'm cooking for myself vs. pre-made stuff or eating out. Is it possible that my cooking is THAT bad that it will always make me terribly sick? How come I can't cook right like everyone else? I'm not the type that can eat salad every day for every meal (I've tried regular weight loss diets before). So what am I supposed to do?
