VEGAN PREGNANCY EATS: WHAT I’VE BEEN EATING DURING MY FIRST TRIMESTER

August 14, 2019

Wow! This first trimester has flown by!! It feels like yesterday I saw those two little pink lines. The first thing that changes when I get pregnant is the food I crave. It can be difficult to feel picky, and not enjoy the foods you usually love. That is why I created this post, to help mammas find some inspiration on healthy plant-based meals they can enjoy during their pregnancy.  This post is inspired by my sweet IG friend The Friendly Fig. When TTC I would go read her lastest updates of what she ate throughout her pregnancy. Now that I am pregnant, I find the inspiration hugely helpful.

Here is a brief glance into the meals that have hit the spot during my first trimester.

BREAKFASTS –

I haven’t been loving coffee as much as I did my first pregnancy so I am rolling with it. Current obsession is un-sweetened London Fogs. Almost every morning I stick with my 1/3+ cups of steel-cut oats, protein powder, warmed berries, almond butter, & molasses. If I don’t get my oatmeal, I am very sad 🙁 sometimes I will snack of fruit until a late breakfast/lunch.

LUNCH

Lunches typically consist of leftovers or something super simple to prepare.

The following meals below consist of:

  • Mexican Soy Chorizo Burrito
  • Pita, Hummus, and Veggies
  • Vegan Mac
  • Veggie Sushi (Vegetable tempura roll, avocado cucumber roll, and a seaweed salad)

DINNER

For dinner, I typically have time to cook and crave a delicious filling meal.

The following meals below consist of:

  • Beyond meat sausage tacos (whole wheat tortilla, chives/romaine, vegan sausage, roasted sweet potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, sauce – cashew cream hot sauce)
  • Roasted Veggies – I roast a variety of veggies throughout the week that I can use for other meals. Its a part of Nap Time Meal Prep
  • Protein Fiber Pasta (Banza Brand Noodles, Homemade marinara, topped with olives, side of toasted sourdough)
  • Stuffed Peppers (Peppers stuffed with ground “meat” (Yves Brand) marinara, mixed beans, seasonings)

SNACKS

Snacks are typically something quick I can grab and take with Grant and I to the park.

Snacks consist of:

  • Watermelon
  • Peaches + Coconut Yogurt
  • One of my favorite Pregnancy Smoothies
  • Amy’s Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate
  • Pita and Muhammara dip
  • Tofu Fresh Spring rolls
  • Sourdough Toast

While most of these meals might be “carby,” I make sure to supplement every day with the following:

Green Powder

Minerals + Shilajit

Prenatal Vitamin 

B12 spray  (use “ASHLEY20” to save 20% off your entire order)

Liquid Nighttime Mineral  (use “ASHLEY20” to save 20% off your entire order)
