Paleo Pregnancy

It has been over a week since my last post and I sincerely hate my absence. It can be easily explained, I have been going through my first trimester of my first pregnancy and I have cooked nothing, I repeat nothing that is new or paleo. For the first few weeks I could only get down things such as cheese toast or cheerios. Basically all just high-glycemic, processed carbohydrates. Then I tried to cook things like spaghetti or manacotti, which I would have intense cravings for and then by the time I cooked I would be nauseated by.
So at this point, I am past week 10 I am trying my best to eat as paleo as possible. I'm succeeding sometimes and sometimes not. I have found that if Adam will cook the meal for me then I am having more success!
I know there are so many moms-to-be out there who are able to stay strict paleo and my hat is off to you! As the days go by and I feel better and better I am able to get back to my old diet.
But I promise I have not forgotten about posting new recipes as soon as I can cook without becoming nauseated I will be right back at it!
I have gotten a couple requests for baby food which I do hope to make myself. However I'm not sure if I will try that before the baby comes! Right now I am overwhelmed with the sheer amount of "things" there are that I need to get in order to be ready for our new addition!
I promise more to come from My Paleo Kitchen soon!

  1. I'm in my 14th week of pregnancy and have had an identical situation. I went from pretty strict paleo before pregnancy to craving carbs and dairy. Meat turns my stomach. If I can eat paleo for at least 2 meals a day, I feel pretty good. I hope it gets easier!
