Why I'm Not Eating Paleo While Pregnant (and maybe you shouldn't either!) | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com

My thoughts on eating Paleo while pregnant... or not!  Hint: this is not going to be a "how to eat Paleo while pregnant" post. Before I got pregnant in October, some might say I was following one of the healthiest possible diets for my body (emphasis on my body).  I chose foods based on the Paleo [...]

A letter to the woman with morning sickness... | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com

A letter to the woman with morning sickness, First of all, congratulations!  You're pregnant!  That's pretty darn amazing, awesome, wonderful, and beautiful.  I think we sometimes forget that part when we are in the thick of things with "morning" sickness <-- I use quotations because obviously we know it doesn't just occur at the beginning [...]

A Day of Pregnancy Eats | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com

Now that I am nearly 20 weeks pregnant, I am happy to say that my days of nausea are basically gone.  But those darn food aversions have still been sticking around!  I think they are getting a wee bit better, but what remains has made my desire to cook pretty minimal.  And very little cooking [...]

Eek!  It's my 18 week pregnancy update already.  Kind of crazy, right? I feel as though the first trimester absolutely drug on forever and ever.  Probably for two main reasons: 1) I felt terrible, and 2) very few people knew I was pregnant so I had to hide my excitement.  But now that the second [...]

The Reason I Have Been MIA on the Blog... We're Pregnant! | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com

Hello?  Is this thing on?  Lord, I hope some of you are still around and have stuck with me through the silence these past two months!  Other than one Friday Favorites post in December, it has literally been that.  Silent.  A silent blog.  Silent social media accounts.  Heck, I wasn't even approving/responding to comments! But [...]

The World Didn't End When I Gained Weight | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com

Three years ago, gaining weight would have had a profound impact on me emotionally.  And not in a good way.  Roughly three to four years ago I was experiencing an immense amount of change, both personally and professionally, and having control over my body's weight was the only way I felt I had some semblance [...]
