Been a vegan for 6 months, the reason for the turkey is for variety, and for $6 it was hard to pass up.
Plan is to swap in 2-3 oz of turkey at lunch, in place of the home ground peanut butter, every other day until i use it up.
Also will be good to see if i notice any difference in anything. i do have a home test kit with 94 of the 100 strips left, so far all 10 tests are normal with high ph which is normal for vegan. Still taking 1 or less pill per day for my hyper thyroid. So no magic cures from being vegan.
My digestive tract loves the vegan food, i crap like i did 40 years ago, near perfect. did not use even 1 roll of toilet paper in 6 months. Ever wonder how people managed before toilet paper was invented? Easy, eat better food and you don't need it. (and i crap 2-3x a day instead of once)
Also 90% of pimples disappeared; i was still getting zits in my 60's when i ate dairy and meats every day.
They say the toxins in unhealthy food gets picked up by the immune system and either becomes a pimple or gets dumped into the colon, where, if it stays too long, they get re-absorbed and try a 2nd time to poison you. Or they get stored in fat cells. Which is why animal products with fat have toxins, they are stored in the fat. I won't eat any fat that i can remove, when i eat the turkey; no skin either, it is mostly fat.
So, the turkey is a test, if it causes crappy crap or pimples, this will be the last one.
Feel free to comment. No need to agree, as everybody is a little different, and has to do what they think is best. As to why i changed what i eat, Dr said i should take a statin, and i said i'll try a healthier diet FIRST.
