Vegan Momma Monthly: Why Am I So Tired?
Welcome to Vegan Momma Monthly! Our newsletter subscribers range from the newly pregnant and/or newly vegan to the new moms trying to convert their families to a plant-based diet.
Rather than give you a month-by-month guide to pregnancy like you can find in so many places, you will find general suggestions for a happy, healthy vegan pregnancy to the first few years as a new vegan momma. Our goal is to provide encouragement to keep you confident and secure in your role, and support you with a community of like-minded individuals. I hope you enjoy this newsletter!
In this issue...
*Introduction: Amazing Physical and Psychological Benefits of Pregnancy Yoga
*Superheroine Superfood: Red Raspberry Tea Tones The Uterus
*Question: "Why am I so tired and how can I fix it?"
*Recipe of the Month: Green Goddess Smoothie
*What's New?: What's New With Vegan Momma?

Practicing Prenatal Yoga for Mind and Body Health
There is an overwhelming amount of positive information about prenatal yoga from pregnant women. It is one of the most popular forms of exercise during pregnancy because it helps to prepare the mind, body, and spirit for the new pregnant body and for childbirth.
Pregnancy yoga increases muscle flexibility and breathing capacity, and reduces swelling in joints and lower back pain. It can help prepare you psychologically to focus and look inwards when it comes time to give birth. And, it's great for people of all experience levels.

Superheroine Food of the Month: Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
Our superheroine food of the month is Red Raspberry Leaf Tea, a homeopathic remedy for uterine health that has been used for hundreds of years. Many women absolutely swear by the herbal tea, and are sure it helped them to have more efficient and effective natural childbirth.
Why does red raspberry leaf tea work to strengthen and tone the uterus, when should you start drinking it, and where do you find it? Find out on our site.
Question: "Why am I so tired?"
Many women suffer from low energy during pregnancy, especially during the first and third trimesters. With the wild swings in your hormone levels, some of the fatigue is inevitable, but there are a few tricks to keeping it at bay.
Meredith wrote to us and asked what she can do or eat to increase her energy levels in pregnancy.

Recipe of the Month: Green Goddess Smoothie
One of my favorite vegan breakfast recipes is the Green Goddess Smoothie. It's perfect for pregnant women who want to ensure they're getting plenty of greens into their diet, but it also works perfectly for those who are breastfeeding, short on time and in need of quick recipes, and for a fun vegan recipe for children.
If you're never made a green smoothie, you should definitely check out this awesome, easy vegan breakfast recipe.
