Hi everyone! An aspiring vegan here. Like most of you I have tons of reasons to go vegan, I have done my research, read books, made meal plans and analized my options as a vegan. I have planned meals that give me all the nutrients and I have wrote a letter to my parents. There is one issue. I have an Eating Disorder. Right now I'm kind of recovered but as an omnivore I eat a very limited number of meals and I have a highly restrictive diet. I want to note that I don't have Anorexia for I never wanted to get thin I just didn't want to eat. For the past two years I have only ate: -Cereal and Milk -Brown rice and chicken, beer and tuna -Pasta with scrambled eggs -Some veggies and fruits. -No potatoes, legumes, Quinoa, etc As you can see with my current diet the idea of me eating some vegan staples such as legumes may seem impossible. Part of me think it is. But I want to go vegan with all my heart for I can st and for this suffering any longer and I truly believe that with a lot of effort I can add variety to my diet and make the transition to veganism. The thing is: how do I make my parents believe the same? If I tell them that I am going to start eating legumes they will be thrilled but if I add "because I will be vegan" they will probably freak out. How do I convince them? How do I ask for their permission? I don't want to make a slow transition I want to be vegan as soon as possible. Do you think I can?
