Tips to Help Morning Sickness on a Vegan Diet

 If anyone can write a post about morning sickness, it would be me! Three pregnancies and three HORRIBLE experiences with morning sickness. I went through more than 20 to 30 weeks (with each pregnancy) of intense vomiting, nights of sleeping next to the toilet, hospital trips for the drip and binge eating to try and make the nausea go away. It was TERRIBLE!!! Just know that you are not alone. They say that more than 70% of pregnant women will have some form of morning sickness during their pregnancy. It can actually be seen as a GOOD sign! In fact, a study in 2016 revealed that morning sickness was a great indicator of a strong and healthy pregnancy! Yay! 

The crazy thing is that there are foods which seriously help my morning sickness such as hash browns, coke and hot chips but I just don't want to keep eating naughty things! It is such a struggle between eating well for your growing baby but also getting relief. All I can say is just do what you can. Its all about survival and just try to get through the horrible times. It is just temporary and will be over soon... but I know more than anyone that it is seriously the worst feeling in the world.

If you are struggling with nausea and vomiting (like I am as I am writing this) try some of the remedies below and find out what works for you!


TIPS:

  • Eat often. An empty stomach normally triggers more nausea.
  • Keep vomit bags handy. All through the car, your handbag, baby bag, the house etc... you will need it!
  • Keep snacks on you at all times. Have snacks handy whenever you leave the house.
  • Try to limit travel. Driving can trigger the nausea and vomiting.
  • Keep a food diary and list which foods help and trigger you. Keep the good options stocked in your house at all times.
  • Head over to the emergency department if you feel like your vomiting is getting out of control. I find that going on the drip makes you feel like a new person for a couple of days!


FOODS TO HELP:

  • Crackers
  • Carby things - breads, wraps, pasta
  • Hot chips or chop up potatoes and make your own. This is healthier!
  • Soda water or fizzy drinks
  • Ginger biscuits
  • Dark chocolate. Not sure why but it really helped me. I would smash down dark chocolate lindt bunnies
  • Dried fruit really helped
  • Bananas
  • Toast - especially vegemite on toast


MEDICATION + REMEDIES

  • Some people find travel sickness wrist bands can help
  • Apparently acupuncture can really help some people
  • Vitamin B6 supplements
  • Medication prescribed by your doctor. I personally didn't use any as I didn't like the side effects but do your own research and see how you feel about the options.

Vegan Loaded Fries Recipe

 


 Oh my gosh… last night we made the yummiest and easiest dinner ever. The great thing about it is there is no recipe! It is just loading the chippy goodness with whichever Mexican yum yums you love the most! Our little girls had the best time helping prepare this and it was definitely a 10/10 meal.

............

Makes two oven trays. Serves 4-6 ish.


INGREDIENTS 
Chips
2kg potatoes sliced into chips
Spray oil
Salt and pepper
OR
2kg packet of frozen fries
Salt and pepper

Guacamole
5 or 6 avocados
2 limes, juiced
Salt and pepper

Fresh tomato salsa -
4 diced tomatoes
Juice of one lime juice
Handful of coriander, chopped
salt and pepper

Shredded vegan cheese - we used a bag of bio cheese pizza shred from Woolworths
Jar of salsa - we used a jar of Byron bay chilli co mild salsa (it was spicy!)
Chopped green onions for garnishing
Vegan sour cream - optional idea but we didn’t use it.

 STEPS 

  1. Prepare the chips - cook frozen chips according to package instructions OR slice 2kg of potatoes into chippy shapes, spray with oil, season with salt and pepper and cook for 45 minutes ish on 180 degrees Celsius until golden.
  2. Make the guacamole by mashing all guacamole ingredients. Set aside.
  3. Make the fresh tomato salsa by tossing the fresh ingredients and set aside.
  4. Once the chippies are ready, top with spoonfuls of jarred salsa and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Place back into the oven until the cheese has melted.
  5. Top with fresh tomato salsa, guacamole, optional sour cream and chopped shallots.
  6. Smash into your mouth. Enjoy!
