Is a vegetarian diet ideal during this condition is an important question for vegans especially. It can be if you watch closely the types and combinations of foods you eat.
Since meat is eliminated from your diet, you have to ensure sufficient calories are consumed to meet your energy needs.
Calories need to be the right kind derived from appropriate sources such as fresh fruits and vegetables.
Empty calories have to be avoided since they have little or zero nutritional value to it.
Your goal is to eat sufficient protein to provide energy for the fetus and you.
Vitamins and minerals are another concern; by eating a wide variety of whole grains, dried beans and peas, dried fruits and wheat germ, you will be providing your body with iron, zinc and other trace minerals required.
You must find other sources of calcium, and vitamins B2, B12 and D. Seek your doctor’s advice on supplements.
