This one comes from personal experience. First, when my wife was pregnant with our first kid, she had complications and had to stay put between the first and last trimester of pregnancy. However, there was basically no information about the impact of food on what she was living. Other than don’t eat sushi, don’t drink alcohol and what not, there was no information on what food can help and what food to avoid. Second, when our first girl was born, she seemed to have a certain problem with bovine protein. We met with a nutritionist, but her input was not that helpful. My wife ended up not eating anything related to dairy, beef and soy, and my god soy is everywhere. Even every day bread has freaking soy, we had to buy a specific bread brand or make our own (which came handy in the pandemic). My wife had to find all the information online through forums, facebook groups and studies.
This made me think why aren’t they nutritionists with targeted meal plans available.
What we really wanted at the time was a list of what we can eat and suggestions of alternatives to what we are used to eating. My wife went on a research spree and was basically an expert on knowing what food may cause problems for our little one and which didn’t. Like we discovered that farmed salmon would cause a reaction, but not a wild one. Turns out farmed salmon might have eaten soy in his diet.
That is where I should have suggested she start a blog (she didn’t want to) and post recipes she used that worked for us. From there create a meal plan and sell it to your community. Perhaps even create a customized meal plan for users who ask for it.
In the end she didn’t want to do it, but if you’re in the same situation maybe share what you’re going through and offer help to others, you might even find a new venture through that.
