Plant based and pregnant
This blog is a short "interview" with a fellow plant based mama whom I had the pleasure to meet a few months ago. We connected and have stayed in touch ever since! I think you'll enjoy :-)
Tell us about yourself: Hi guys, my name is Kailyn. I am a happy, southern 22 year old mama born and raised in Alabama but currently residing in Indy. I am blessed with two girls, one toddler (2) and another on the way! My fiance' dibs in and out of plant based however he pleases, but we have no meat in our house!
1) When did you decide to go plant based and tell us why?
I decided a plant based lifestyle was best for me in November 2017. I have many friends that are on a plant based diet and they would always talk about how their diet changed them, not only physically but emotionally. I wanted to see what the hype was about. I was also in my first trimester of pregnancy and it honestly helped me transition. I was able to cut meat out cold turkey because it just looked so gross to me. Of course, I already had food aversions and the smell, sight, and texture of meat just turned me off completely.
