So, I've been a vegetarian for about a year and vegan for a few months, and recently I went waaaay off the wagon, almost in the Traditional/Primal direction. It felt good for a while, but really, it feels crappy. I feel way more tired after eating heavy milk/dairy.
I'm six weeks pregnant, and I do crave meat often. Corned beef, sandwiches w/ lunchmeats and cheese (eew), etc etc. But really, when I think about it, it nauseates me.
I wonder what my body is saying- if it's asking for protein that can be given in other ways?
Anyways, any tips for weaning off meat/dairy during pregnancy and returning to a vegan way of eating? We have a well stocked pantry, but little motivation to cook- big on fruit and easy salads w/ dark leafy greens. We have raw nuts, which I sometimes soak, and quinoa and beans and the like. But I mess up most recipes that have too many steps, and lately I've been too exhausted to want to cook ...
