Too Much Soy Milk

A non-dairy, non-meat diet is important to me. Because I truly believe in not exploiting animals.

Every summer, however, long before this diet, my right ear gave me problems. My sinuses would clog. Especially during sleep. This year however, has been the worst.

I managed to narrow down the culprits to either soy milk or quinoa. I'm certain I do have a bad reaction to too much quinoa. I can eat a little bit and not have a problem. But ever since I switched from almond milk to soy milk the problem has become pronounced. It doesn't appear to be an allergy, so much as a sensitivity. I can eat soy. But too much and doom.

Soy is not an essential component of a vegan diet. Beans, veg and grains can provide the majority of nutritional needs. Fortified cereal can supply the rest. Almond or rice milk is fortified with calcium and vitamin d. Soy products are a tasty departure from a typical vegan diet, but beware too much.
