30 Bananas a Day!

Hi everybody! I'm relatively new and newly pregnant...need support!

I found out two days ago that I am pregnant, and decided that this is the best thing to do for the baby(even if I love my fatty cooked food) and for me too. So, I'm trying to do an all-raw pregnancy but I'm worried about getting all the nutrients I need and keeping my energy up. I'm very easily anemic, with a history of eating disorders and manic depression, so too much or little can be a problem for me.

Can I get some advice on what fruits and veggies are best to eat, and maybe some recipes or tips for eating enough and taking care of the babe?

I would recommend Websters chiropractic technique later in the pregnancy.  It allows your body to position the baby head down for an easier delivery.  It may also reduce pregnancy related pain.

I believe you should be getting all the nutrients if you eat enough.  My class at chiro school said you should increase cals by at least 500 for the baby.   

Congrats and good luck.  What you need to find is a sympathetic doctor who is open to the 811 way of life.  Easier said than done, I imagine.  I think there are lots of moms here who are raising "fruit bats" as they call 'em - they should be able to give you some great advice.

First off, hurray to you and our newest expected lil Earthling :)

He or she is very blessed to have a mum so attuned to the health of you both.  

From our Welcome Wagon, here's some parental info you might like:

During pregnancy, continue to eat a low fat diet. High fat diets cause increased risks of gestational diabetes, high blood sugar, candida and yeast infection problems,  and or big babies. 

With time, pregnancy will cause an increased need for calories, so if one is eating 811 lfrv, their protein and fat intake will automatically increase as the calorie intake increases.

For those of you trying to get pregnant, but a fruity diet has made periods lighter, less frequent, or have disappeared, you may still be ovulating, so check body temp with a basal thermometer.

Periods - They May Be 'Normal', But Are They Healthy?  Blog by our member Debbie Took:


First of all congratulations on your pregnancy and kudos to you for intending to give your baby the best.  

Make sure you eat enough calories, you might need 3000 or more a day, and may be more after the baby is born both because you will be more active and if you breastfeed.  

Eat lots of lettuce greens.  Lettuce greens especially romaine is like natures vitamin supplement in a leaf and they contain almost every kind of vitamin except D.  

Benefits of Lettuce Greens

Vitamins and B12 Demystified

Lettuce greens should not be confused with cruciferous veggies like kale and spinach that are high in oxalate.  Actually to minimize morning sickness, it is best to avoid all high oxalate foods like grains, tubers, legumes, most nuts and seeds, and processed foods.

Look through our groups and you will find a few parenting groups as well.  Good luck, and Peace, PK
