My Vegan Pregnancy and No Longer ‘Suspicious’ For Now, I Guess
I am feeling a lot better today, compared to yesterday’s photo I posted after talking about the police being called on a “suspicious” person entering our new temporary home. Today I am glowing more and less ashy, braided my hair, had taken a shower.
I am growing this baby on a super vegan diet filled with hemp protein, chia seeds, nettles tea (great for anemia prevention and varicose veins prevention ), Spirulina, vegan DHA, and chlorella to name a few. Just a reminder that it’s possible, under the right situation, to practice a vegan diet during pregnancy(Check out the webinar I give on achieving a great vegan pregnancy) I have had multiple, successfully and also had all home births.
I know not everyone has the same path or plan as I do, but I just wanted to put it out there that a vegan dietary pregnancy is possible! I emphasize this because I know food choice and access are PRIVILEGES in this current global system of how food and maternal health care (as well as overall health care, housing, education etc resources ) are not easily accessible to a significant number of the world’s population.
Well, that is all I have to share for now.
