recently found out im having a baby, and ive had TONS of people so far telling me "you need to eat meat, your iron levels are probably low, you need to eat more protein" lol
people are so ignorant!
i havent even had a craving for meat or dairy, thank god
my sister felt the need to send me this link:
thanks for the reply, i couldnt agree with you more. people always try to make sense of saying "humans are omnivores we need meat, milk is good for you" but they can never prove their theory... its quite funny to me
To test if you gave birth to an omnivore or vegan put the toddler in a cot with a banana and a rabbit. Come back 30 mins later and if the banana AND the rabbit are gone you know what to feed your child.
Plant eaters should stick with eating plants otherwise they end up as deranged haters like Lierre Keith, Nina Planck and the rest of the 'vegans are stupid!' robots.
There are hundreds of examples of vegetarian and vegan moms who gave birth to perfectly healthy babies. The fear and prejudices about vegetarianism is deeply ingrained in the psyche after years of programming us to believe we need to eat animals. Show your sister some counter examples of healthy veg pregnancies and kids raised on balanced vegetarian diets if you feel the need to curb her fears. For your own sake, do some reading, like "Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven" and 'The Everything Vegan Pregnancy Book". With all the hormones and antibiotics and disease in meat, dairy and egg products, you are doing more for your baby by not eating them.
People say funny things. These people of whom you speak are they doctors or nutrition scientists? Or just SAD parrots?
Firstly, Congratulations, if its your first your world is about to change forever.
Secondly lets not forget the logic leap "WHEN Crown Shakur died of starvation, he was 6 weeks old and weighed 3.5 pounds. His vegan parents, who fed him mainly soy milk and apple juice..." well yeah. Babies are, of course, not vegan. Mothers milk is the best food available. Sure I understand some mothers can not breast feed but the baby needs what is in the breast milk.
My point is not what to feed babies but that the Author makes a massive logic leap; that the baby who was poorly fed during the first 6 weeks was not born healthy. There is no information offered about the health of the baby at birth or in utero. Yet the thrust of the article is that a pregnant woman is unable to grow a healthy baby without animal product.
To paraphrase Dr D.Graham "there are no contra indications to healthy eating". Don't worry about the pressure, if you are healthy the baby has the best chance.
Enjoy your journey
BS my mom never did i never have.
only somebody with a motive would say such a thing.
walk away from a person like this that would have you risk your health
HAHAHA Beware also of dihydrous oxide, it's been found in every home it's been tested for. Everyone who has consumed dihydrous oxide has died - thus it's the most lethal chemical known to man!
ask The Grahams (LOL)
she is a true inspiration
I think i remember reading an article where people who lived on remote islands whose diets were solely local fruits. I wonder how the tribe still exists if you need meat to produce healthy offspring
