What is a Preggo to do when
Meat and eggs make me gag!! **sigh** I can't live on pickles and chicken stock LOL. I can't wait till this part of the pregnancy passes, I miss eating!! Just had to bust that out since I have been absent from the forums with not much to add.
On another note saw the baby's heartbeat this week for the first time and all is well with the lilttle sir/madam that is wreaking havoc on my digestive system.
Glad to hear the baby is doing well! Maybe you could try making some coconut bread or muffins or something? When I feel nauseous the last thing I want is protein, too.
Hmm now I had never thought of that before LOL. Maybe it is time to crack out those recipes. Thanks!!
Can you eat dairy? Creamy things work well for some people.
I can handle dairy. I will have to try that too.
I did just whip up some pumpkin muffins and sweet potato fries......wierd combo I know. The fries hit me just before after I had started the muffins, I have never made sweet potato fries and they came out fantastic, I will have to add them to the blog. The muffins I will save for the morning and see how they work for me. I did try them they came out good and the kids gobbled up a bunch of them. I think the sweet potatoe might just be something else to fall back on. Thanks for expanding my horizons Dragonfly and SAQ
To a certain extent, the kid is going to be driving for the next few months. Eat what you crave, stay away from the artificial junk, and try not to sweat it too much.
avocados. high in folate, and i ate at least one a day my whole pregnancy. i was really obsessed with them. i also ate a lot of soft (raw) cheeses. yes, a huge no-no. i did not care. i was hungry.
i also fell off the vegetarian band wagon. i craved a steak and nearly ate it raw. then, it was fish. i had to go to a particular restaurant for it, becaus emy firend is the chef. i had to call him first to ask him if he could make it (based on the ingredients he had on hand) and he said yes. i went over and it was the BEST FISH EVER. it's so weird. but my meat eating was all spread out.
i mostly ate fat: dairy, avocados, lots of salads and vegetables, beans of course (but not a lot of grains because didn't like them), some fruit, and so on. man, it was wild.
Now avocados I haven't tried in a while but I could see myself digging the guacamole, so maybe I will pick some up and make some fresh quac. Today I am hitting the restart button, I am well armed with fresh ginger, I had ran out of it and was dying, so ginger tea, pickles and I am good to go LOL. I really wish things would change for the meat and eggs part. I can stomach veggies, as a matter of fact I picked up some bagged baby spinach while I did a quick food store stop.
How about scrambled egg yolks?
One thing I like to eat alot when preggo and nauseous is milkshakes/smoothies. I can add a couple raw egg yolks to it for extra nutrition without having to eat eggs. You can't even tell they are in there. Also something I've been doing recently is adding an avocado to my shake, it makes it super smooth and again you can't really tell. My last smoothie I even added kale... Something I've not tried before but it was still yummy! Here's my recipe
1/2 Cup Coconut milk
1/2 cup water
handful frozen strawberries
1 Tbs chia seeds (soaked or unsoaked, soaked is better but sometimes I forget)
1/2 to 1 avocado
2 egg yolks, or whole eggs occasionally
2 leaves of Kale (optional)
a drop of stevia (optional)
