My friend Cory who I have known since middle school came over to see my new apt and catch up. So what do I do? Invite her to have vegan dinner of course!! And well, ya know, before we start any meal there’s the “giving thanks” part so everyone get out your iPhones and take a pic of your food! Beware that if you ever go to dinner with me, your food may get cold before you touch it ;P
Friends taking pictures of friends taking pictures of food.

As you know, I am a big vegan food enthusiast! So whenever I go out with friends, I usually suggest a cool vegan spot. It allows me to indulge in how creatively tasty plant based foods can be! However, I want to warn people who are trying vegan foods for the first time. If you are drastically changing your diet to all plant based, you may get a ton of bloating! In fact, it wasn’t til recently that I noticed a correlation between my stomach hurting and vegan dinners.
The high fiber content in the vegan meal feeds the bacteria in your intestines and they produce gas as they digest the plant material. Therefore, an intolerance to the new heavily plant-based foods creates a situation where gasses build up – causing your belly to inflate and get uncomfortable! And yes, I know you’re thinking. Yes, this causes flatulence. Majorly.
This bloating thing surprises me though because I actually eat a lot of veggies daily, so I am unsure as to why this is still happening. I do know my stomach is quite sensitive so I suppose I will need to diagnose myself more closely the next time I go out. See what foods I’m specifically pairing.
Don’t let bloating scare you from eating veggies or trying a vegan diet though! Usually it’s temporary during the adjustment period and you can always take something like Beano, eat yogurt with active live cultures, or take a probiotic to help with the gas.
Afterwards we decided to have a random photo sesh! (Cuz that’s what you do on a Friday night, right?) Busted out our best model poses but nothing could beat the Pilates poses I pulled outta my back pocket. Here’s Cobra on a Dolphin. Wait a minute…this actually looks like that scene from…
Hahaha. Oh random me.
