This week I ventured into the world of video to give you my advice on eating as a vegan, when you’re suffering from morning sickness. Although this video focuses on pregnancy, there are also some great tips if you are generally unwell and struggling to eat!

Although you may be wondering if this is really a vegan topic, it’s important to ensure that any ‘remedies’ you try are cruelty-free. Lemon and ginger tea can contain honey for example, and vitamins can be non-vegan too. Always read the label!

 

 

Here is a recap of what I covered in the video:

  • Eat little and often. 5 – 6 meals per day are helpful so your stomach doesn’t become too empty, and then starts causing more nausea.
  • Experiment with foods. You’ll likely be turned off some foods that you previously ate every day. Be prepared to let them go and try other things with similar nutritional values. Don’t be too hard on yourself!
  • Managing Morning Sickness In Pregnancy as a vegan

  • Get your partner to take the load off by cooking, if smells bother you – sometimes being in the kitchen is tough!
  • Try the usual remedies such as ginger and lemon – but understand that they may not work. There are many suggestions online such as acupuncture, peppermint tea and chewables.
  • Practice mindfulness through journalling/yoga/meditation. This will help to keep you in a positive frame of mind when you’re tired of feeling sick. These practices can also boost natural energy.
  • Take your multivitamin when you feel least sick – try to notice any patterns of sickness through the day, or smells that trigger sickness.
  • Drink plenty of water or herbal tea to keep hydrated. Small sips every 10 minutes, are better than trying to gulp down a litre at once. Or worse, hardly drinking at all!
  • If you’re craving sweet things, try to stay as healthy and energised as possible by using alternatives. Maple syrup instead of sugar, NAKD bars, and fruit are all great sweet food items.

Has anything helped you through morning sickness? Let me know!

  • Is Humane Meat Acceptable?⁠
❓❓⁠
What do you think?⁠
Personally, I won't eat any meat as there is always a victim. Regardless of how that animal has been treated, as soon as they're at the slaughterhouse, their treatment becomes inhumane.⁠
👎👎⁠
I've always loved the quote - "There is no humane way to kill somebody that doesn't want to die."⁠
It's so true! Animals want to live, they have needs, personalities and deserve freedom. ⁠
🐷🐔⁠
There are many myths around the vegan lifestyle - can you name any more?⁠
🤓🤓⁠
I'll drop a link to my myth-busting page in my bio!⁠

  • New post alert! Full of juicy advice and insight for those of you not yet vegan.⁠
😁😁⁠
It’s easy to get stuck in the “I want to go vegan but don’t know where to start” phase though. Can you relate? This post may help! You can tick off each point before you dive right into veganism, feeling more prepared and motivated to get stuck in.⁠
👊👊⁠
Have a read and let me know - have you done all of these yet?⁠

  • Last week I ordered this from Ocado - Banana Blossom!⁠
🍌🍌⁠
I've never cooked with it before, and to be honest it seems a little intimidating! But I've seen it on quite a few vegan restaurant menus, often breaded or battered to make vegan fish.⁠
😁😁⁠
So I'm going to give it a go... I'll let you know what it's like and how easy it was to prepare! ⁠
🤞🤞⁠
Is there a food you've been afraid to experiment with, or just haven't gotten round to trying yet? Let me know!⁠

  • Budget recipe books and sites!⁠
📖📖⁠
If you like to have easy and cheap recipes to hand, I highly recommend these two books. 'Vegan on the Go' has amazing recipes that you wouldn’t even believe are inexpensive to make – including sushi, pizza and burgers. 'Vegan on the Cheap' is a US-based recipe collection, however, I had no issue using it here in the UK. I recommend it because it actually breaks down the cost per serving of each recipe, so if you’re on a real shoestring budget, you’ll love scoping out the super-cheap meals!⁠
💰💰⁠
Websites I love are @cilantro_and_citronella (The Stingy Vegan) and @plantbasedonabudget .⁠
📲📲⁠
I love having a collection of recipe books and sites bookmarked, as it stops me from making the same meals over and over, giving me some much-needed inspiration. Nobody wants to have to go out and buy 20 different ingredients just for one dish, and these books/sites don’t force you to do that. They’re just full of inexpensive, simple ingredients.⁠
😁😁⁠
How about you? What are your go-to sites and books?⁠

  • How Can I Go Vegan? I get this question a lot!⁠
🔥🔥⁠
But the truth is, there isn't a 'one size fits all' approach.⁠
👀👀⁠
What's my story?⁠
📖📖⁠
I didn't have a big epiphany. I don't even have a 'veganniversary' like many people. I started the transition slowly. Firstly, switching from cow's milk to plant milk in meals, drinks and cereal. Then I stopped eating dairy chocolate. The hardest part was cutting out cheese and eggs as there weren't as many vegan alternatives back then, but after a while it was second nature. It took a while for me to get my head around some aspects - hidden ingredients, e-numbers, ethical fashion, anybody? But I DID get there. I fully believe the way I made the transition was best for me, to ensure that I went vegan for the right reasons, stayed committed to veganism for life, and made a real difference to my health, animals and the environment.⁠
👊👊⁠
I'm now 30. I became a fully-fledged vegan around 6 years ago and haven't looked back. Don't get me wrong, I've made mistakes. Plus it took me a long time to understand animal testing issues, parent companies and loads of other things. In fact, I'm still learning and developing now!⁠
☺️☺️⁠
But I'd like to think I know my stuff. I've helped others go vegan, reduce their meat intake and get motivated to make the change. I love it!⁠
