I was a vegetarian for a couple years before getting pregnant with DD (1st pregnancy) but then I started craving steak to the point of almost insanity LOL. So I caved and ate meat the rest of my pregnancy.
I went vegetarian again after having her and was veggie when I got pregnant with my son. Again, started craving meat and caved. This time it took me a long while to go back to veggie. I actually didn't go back to being vegetarian until this past June, then decided to go vegan a month later.
I'm currently pregnant with #3 and have stuck with the vegan diet so far. I'm pushing so hard to stay vegan this time around! Lol
So my question is: how do you get enough protein during your pregnancy? I already eat a lot of beans/legumes, drink a good amount of almond milk and the Silk protein fruit drink, and eat a lot of peanut butter. Is there anything else that you added to your diet to get more protein? I was thinking of a vegan protein shake, but I'd have to ask if they're safe during pregnancy.
