WHAT TO EAT VEGAN PREGNANCY

WHAT I ATE IN A DAY 20 WEEKS PREGNANT (HEALTHY & VEGAN)

 

I get asked SO many times what do I eat everyday.
Although I am breastfeeding (yes still!) and I’m pregnant, I do not think it is an excuse to throw in the towel and start eating rubbish.
I had a bad start with my eating habits in my first trimester as I had terrible nausea. Bit of a fancy way to say I ate crap All.the.time.
Since the nausea passed I was able to return to my normal eating habits, although slightly modified for my pregnancy.
Note that I make the best choices when possible. I do however, give myself platy of leeway, especially on the weekends.
I prefer to eat healthily all the time but thats not always possible (especially where I live)
Sometimes I want some treats and I don’t deprive myself.

 

I plan my meals every week to save time, money AND to avoid the question “what are we having for dinner tonight” 

 

This week I took a lot of recipes from Dr Fuhrman Eat to Live Cookbook which you can get here

Here is day 1 in my what I eat in a day while 20 weeks pregnant 🌟 Sunday 🌟

  • 1 small banana, frozen spinach, frozen courgette, vegan chocolate protein, frozen cherries (1/2 cup), 1 TBL almond butter, 2 TBL ground Flax seed, almond milk

  • LARGE salad – lettuce, quinoa, chickpeas & mango & chopped veggies (carrot, cucumber, spring onion)

  • Ceaser dressing from the Eat to Live Cookbook 
  • Grapefruit
  • 1 banana & 1 heaping TBL almond butter

  • Carrot sticks

 

DINNER

 

Ate out at a Vietname restaurant 

 

DESSERT

 

  • 4 fresh figs
  • Small packet of dark chocolate covered rice crackers

 

NOTES FOR THE DAY:

 

I dont normally go out to eat in the week but I was exhausted from being up for a week with a sick toddler and to be honest, I couldn’t be bothered to cook or to wash the dishes!
Dark chocolate covered rice cakes are my weakness! 😋 I don’t buy them regularly as I will eat them all. But when I do, I get portioned out packets and enjoy each bite!
I am having more treat foods since my pregnancy but I try to not go overboard.
My nutrition is still extremely important to me!
The more I eat healthy foods, the less I want unhealthy foods. I promise the same will happen to you if you do the same.
