I'm still here, I swear!

I guess that i've been busy with school lately, so I haven't been posting; thank you to you guys who commented! more posts to come!
That said, i've still been reading about nutrition, and I've learned a lot about dietary needs. Just in the last couple of weeks, i've stopped eating milk and dairy, and i feel... better! I cough less, and my skin seems to be clearer (a big plus, i spent a year on accutane a while back, and i NEVER want acne again!) I've been trying all kinds of lactose free milks; soy, almond, coconut and rice, even. A friend of mine and i were discussing this; he eats the Caveman diet, and he says he's noticed a health improvement not only by not getting dairy, but by not eating processed grains, either. Hmm, for the time being, my staple foods still include pasta and bread, and they're hard enough to find sans milk and eggs.
So, anyway i'm going to go shopping in a few minutes for vegetarian food, probably going to end up at the nearest Trader Joe's or Whole Foods; i have a shopping list assembled to get a number of vegan complete proteins (more on these later,) and some cheese substitutes.
I'll post about my groceries, and why i got them when i'm back. I don't want to waste the middle of the day, the sun is actually shining today. vitamin d depletion causes seasonal affective disorder.


  1. ah finally, thought you stopped eating ;)

    Pasta and bread are my staples too. I don't know if I could quit dairy. hmm.

  3. Welcome back! lets see more posts I need to keep my karma in check.

    Man I love me some Dairy agreed it would be hard to quit.

  4. Surely you can't go wrong with pasta and bread
