E is selling girl scout cookies. Because I believe that dairy hurts me, I hadn’t planned on eating any. (I am going to buy some and send them to service members overseas.)
T, who is 11, has stopped eating wheat due to his recent allergy results. Since his results were not such that he would die if he ate wheat, he does occasionally eat a bit. However, when he does he feels awful. I assumed that he would not eat girl scout cookies because he knows he feels bad when he eats it. Now, I do know that he is 11 and things are different for kids. But he said that, to him, it’s worth feeling bad to eat the cookies.
So this made me think about the response I get when I tell people I have “gone mostly vegan” to deal with my RA. Often I hear “Oh! I could never do that!”
So, is it worth it? I’d be really interested to hear your take on this. Is it worth feeling bad to eat the things you like or have always eaten?
