Along with all the things that changed when I became pregnant and had a baby, I also began eating meat. Prior to pregnancy, I had been a vegetarian for about 15 years. Well, actually I was a pescatarian – someone who does not eat any meat except seafood. It’s now 8 months post-pregnancy and I’m still eating meat, especially steak! Is it because I’m still breastfeeding? Is it something I’m missing, like iron, or am I just addicted? I don’t think eating meat is necessary if you have enough protein from other sources likes legumes. It’s probably better to have a diet of whole grains, legumes, seeds, fruits and vegetables without meat. It seems harder, however, to make meals that contain all those types of food. It seems easier to plan a meal around a meat. Usually when we say we don’t have food in the house, that means we don’t have meat. Also, I try to buy meat on sale and that usually does not include fish, which is probably the healthiest meat. Tilapia is sometime on sale but that’s about it. So, do I try to go back to my pescatarian ways or stay a meataholic?
