Hi guys! I am new to this forum. I was eating mostly vegetarian with occasional dairy and eggs before i got pregnant. I am now almost 5 months pregnant, and have stopped eating meat. I still eat dairy, but lately its been making me sick, so I have been wanting to cut it out of my diet. My husband is vegan. The clencher is that I am also allergic to gluten, so alot of meat substitutes are out of the question, as are pasta and bread dishes.
Is this healthy during pregnancy? Moreover, it seems like making a massive shift in my diet during pregnancy may be stressful on my brain and my body.
Does anyone have advice to offer on this subject?
As a side note, I am also looking for resources for raising a vegetarian or vegan child. We don't keep wheat products in the house, which would mean my daughter would have limited gluten, dairy and meat products. I worry about this being a healthy choice for a small child, as well as the social implications.
