Ok, I am not a vegetarian. In fact with my first pregnancy I was so thrilled to "have to" eat protein that I just indulged in the best kinds of meat I could find.<br><br>
But this pregnancy meat is making feel so sick. I have actually had to spit out my food that last few times I've eaten meat. And leading up to this meat was definitely making me sick (queasy or rumbley tummy).<br><br>
So can this baby be telling me something? (I should add this would not be the first VERY strong communication I've had from this child.) And if this baby wants a vegetarian diet what do I eat?<br><br>
I've been able to eat eggs, cheese, nuts, yogurt, and peanut butter. What else should I be eating to ensure adequate protein? I am not a big fan of beans but my MIL made chili the other day and I actually enjoyed it.<br><br>
Thanks in advance wise mommas for your pregnancy vegetarianism crash course.

do you like Indian food? There are a number of legume dishes that don't "taste like beans..." dal, chickpea dishes, etc.<br><br>
Oh, and if the texture of beans is an issue (I love them now but as a child they grossed me out!), pureed beans in soup are great. Easiest delicious recipe ever: put a couple of cans of black beans in the blender, add some veggie broth and a little red wine, and puree till smooth. Add some salt, pepper, cumin, and garlic, and heat to boiling. Reduce heat, and stir in some milk to make it the right texture. Dollop each bowl with sour cream. Yum. Totally not beany and full of protein.<br><br>
And of course, there's tofu and other soy-based products. But if you aren't into veggie food that may not be where you want to start...<br><br>
Funny, I'm a vegetarian who is clearly pregnant with a carnivore! If things don't change soon, I may be asking how to cook a steak. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I had the same thing happen with my last pregnancy and I thought for sure my son was going to be vegetarian. But he seems to like meat just fine.
