Hi Alice. Welcome. Your food preferences sound alot like mine--if I had my druthers, I would follow a totally vegan diet. I became a bit concerned about all the tofu I was eating, as well as other soy products after learning that it may negatively impact thyroid levels in some people. (There are thyroid problems in my family). I also lift weights and need additional protein for that. So in a compromise, I now predominantly follow a lacto-ovo diet, with some (very little) fish/seafood (mostly canned/pouched tuna) out of sheer convenience as well as for variety.
