|That's my feeling on it, too, pumpkinhead. If you have no ethical considerations, try anything that appeals and see how you feel. I think there is a small but substancial part of the population that doesn't need animal products ever and a small but substancial part of the population does. Everyone in the middle can choose what works for them. Organic always makes more sense than not.
Whole always makes more sense than processed.
Fresh always makes more sense than preserved food.
Since you state you would be distraught to prepare meat, I think you should give quite a bit more time to allow your new diet to heal you and your child. If she looks healthy, but just gets sick more often than you think she should, make some subtle changes and look for good news. If she doesn't look healthy, I think it might be time for more dramatic changes.

I was vegetarian for a few decades- up until my second child was a year old.
My second child has eczema triggered by most plant ingredients- soy, tomato, citrus, potato, gluten, nuts, legumes (except occasional peanut butter). Coconut milk/cocunut flares it as well.
He is doing great on chicken broth, organic turkey and chicken, fish, broccoli and carrots, apples, fresh yogurt and raw milk cheeses.
Sometimes you just can't eat plant foods and thrive. I would prefer we could have stayed vegetarian, but we're all doing much better on a new diet.
