We are working our way along the NT way of eating and have been for a while. We moved to an area last year where we can get raw milk, raw cheese, pastured meats, etc. much more easily. DH makes his own yogurt and we use store bought (but unsweetened) kefir (need to get some grains to do our own). DH has done a little bit of fermented veggies...recently we had some homemade sauerkraut that turned out deeelish.
The problem is that I'm unexpectedly (but very happily) pg. We battled IF issues w/ DS and didn't expect to be pg on our own ever.
I'm about 7 weeks...still very early. With DS I had very little nausea at all. This time around I"m already getting quite sick...nothing at all is appetizing, and what is, well, it isn't nutritious. I'm actually not that bad in the morning so far, so I try to eat a healthy breakfast of free range organic eggs cooked in some coconut oil and butter. We don't make our own bread but we only buy Ezekial. I do okay for breakfast, but as of late I really just want bland bland bland for lunch and dinner and it is hard to stomach almost everything.
THe stuff that appeals to me is super bland...stuff like pizza and annie's organic mac and cheese
I need easy to prepare things that don't smell strongly (I've been sick eating grass fed beef hamburgers in the past week, not big on meat in general as of late) to get me through this.
I KNOW it is so important to eat healthy right now. I have a tough time w/ CLO normally (I don't mind the taste but it often makes me nauseous even when I take it w/ food) and it is far far worse right now. But I know nutrition right now is so very important.
Any suggestions on NT recipes that are tummy-friendly and somewhat easy to prepare? Am I dreaming???
Do I just get by on what I can manage to stomach for now and just try to supplement that a little w/ yogurt, fermented veggies, CLO and vitamins in addition to the not so great stuff?
I still need to read up more on raw milk in pgcy...I know it is safe and there are minimal risks, but at the same time if something would happen I feel like I'd always blame myself. Arrrrgh. Silly I know...but after I research it some more I'm sure i'll feel better about it.
eta: I do take 100mg b6 daily and I know that is supposed to help ease m/s.
