What I’ve Been Eating Lately [Vegan Pregnancy – Second Trimester]

What I’ve Been Eating Lately [Vegan Pregnancy – Second Trimester]

Second trimester – weeeeee!! Thankfully my appetite for healthy food came back full throttle toward the end of my first trimester and right into the second. Finally!! I feel so much better – more energy, “cleaner”, and just not as sluggish. And now I can focus on all the good stuff that this little girl needs. Judging by all the fruit I have been consuming, I may birth a watermelon. ;)

There’s a ton after the cut – more energy = more motivation to take pics of my food. So, get ready! Aaaaaaand as always, follow along on Instagram for more plant-based food inspiration.
