I’ve been a vegan for most of my life and I love this way of eating. I completely enjoy eating nothing but fruits, vegetables, greens, nuts, and seeds. There are times when I will go completely raw or juice fast for a few weeks, but I always go back to my comfortable vegan diet. One of the biggest, I won’t say complaints, but concerns is that produce is expensive. And it can be especially if you buy organic.
Another cavil is that some recipes are time-consuming and call for unusual ingredients. Well, I can agree with this and have experienced it myself. But, there is a new recipe book on the market that will make vegan life far less complex, Liv B’s Vegan on a Budget.

Just like the author Liv B, I too developed painful digestive issues when I was quite young. I was in my teens when I made the connection between my diet and my health conditions.
