{ Video } Pregnancy Diet: What I Eat in a Day



what i eat in a day vegan pregnancy

Hello from the glorious south of France, where I’m chilling out in the sunshine with my budding bump.

Pregnancy is such a precious time to give your body lots of rest and great nutrition, with simple, nutrient-dense food straight from nature.

What I Eat in a Day

Perhaps you’re curious to know what a vegan mama actually eats day-to-day. Maybe you’re wondering if, indeed, the vegan diet is complete enough to provide mother and child with everything they need.

I hope my vlog today will show you that, not only is my diet complete, but it is indeed head and shoulders above a lot of standard diets, in terms of fibre, vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients. The plant-based way of eating is a veritable flood of dense nutrition for the body, and I feel great on it.

As you’ll see, I eat very simply – no fancy-pants recipes, just whole veggies, grains, pulses and fruits in their natural form. I focus on getting a lot of greens and raw food at every meal. Greens and raw veggies are our best friends for creating a thriving bod. They’re chock full of iron, calcium, and vitamins, and also contain masses of insoluble fibre, which is great for keeping you regular. (An absolute godsend during pregnancy!)

This duo of greens and raw veggies is the cornerstone of my diet – I really feel the difference if I ever miss out for more than a day.


The other things I eat every day on my vegan pregnancy diet are:

  • Oats, for folate, calcium and fibre
  • Rice and beans, for complete protein
  • Bananas, broccoli and avocados for folates
  • Broccoli, squashes and oranges for calcium
  • Flax and chia seeds for omega 3s

    Great website, very aspirational ! Thanks, that is such a beautiful work to promote the vegan way of life !
    – in your video, you don’t grind your flax seeds, which is however necessary to properly absorb the nutrients ( omega -3 ), correct ?
    – you don’t prepare any dressing with your salad, you just eat your veggies with a dash of vinegar cider ?

      Thank you so much for your lovely compliments Lily! And yes – you are SO right, and very on the ball. Flaxseeds do need to be ground to improve their absorbability. I have since changed my ways. 😉 And no, I like my veggies as they come, with either a dash of ACV or hot sauce. Yum!

    Good, thanks 😉
