I was experimenting with grain-free (and legume free except I ate hummus...) before I got pregnant and felt better than I can ever remember. Think that's actually why I got pregnant so fast! I ate butter and 1 cup of whole yogurt but that's it for dairy. Some fish too. But mostly nuts, seeds, vegies and fruit. I did some sprouted grains also. Once pregnant, I just ate what i could eat, as I had some really strong aversions. But now that i'm breastfeeding (DD is 10 months and still mainly BFing) grains have been the only thing that fill me up so I've just gone with it. But my energy level is so crummy. Even with broken sleep I know I could feel better than I do. I've been eating mostly gluten-free but have hesitated to jump on the grain-free band wagon because all I hear is that grains make breastmilk. And I'm worried I'll be hungry!
I've never had any supply issues but I plan on letting DD wean when she wants, hopefully that'll be sometime after 2 years. My bloodsugar has been giving me a run for my money - really have to eat something every 2 hours or I feel like I'm under water. I'm not opposed to meat on principal I just can't seem to get it down. Even fish is a stretch sometimes. Maybe I could do broths? Can I go grain-free safely and get enough nutrients for me and baby without eating meat?
Advice and what to eat ideas welcome!!!
