Well, ladies and gentlemen, after years of missing the deadline I have finally managed to sign up for VeganMoFo! For those who don’t know what it is, I have committed to writing 5 blog posts (pertaining to vegan food) each week for the entire month of October. Since I am in the midst of my last trimester I thought I would focus my theme on vegan pregnancy. Go figure, right?
This is the plan:
Mondays: Baby bump pics/preggo posts
Tuesdays: Calcium-rich foods
Wednesdays: Iron-rich foods
Thursdays: Protein-rich foods
Fridays: Meal-planning (or possibly Blog-Planning)
Saturdays: Freezer meals
The reason I chose to focus on specific nutrients (something I usually oppose) is that those three seem to be the ones people are most concerned about when it comes to a healthy vegan pregnancy. I’m no dietician (so please don’t sue me) but I do want to point out some sources (and recipes!) that can help pregnant women, vegan or not, meet their daily requirement. It’s not as complicated as people make it out to be, but it does take a bit of conscious effort (as all good things should). I’m also using this as an excuse to stock my freezer before little Squid’s arrival. Something I’ve desperately been meaning to do but simply haven’t found time for.
So that’s the plan! I’m a little nervous, it’s a big commitment, but I’m also completely stoked. I hope you’ll follow along!
