When you think about pregnancy diet are there certain foods that immediately pop in your mind? For me it’s always salmon since it is one of the most important foods you can consume while pregnant! However there are several more ingredients you might want to add into your shopping cart. These foods will ensure you’ll get all the nutrients you need and have the best possible pregnancy.
To be honest I think eating correctly is one of the most important things during pregnancy! You can use apps to calculate how many nutrients you’re getting from your meals. If you’re wondering how many nutrients you need in the first place make sure to check out my other blog post here. I personally love using Chronometer. You just add all foods you have consumed during the day and check what the nutritional value of your meals are. But I know it can be too much for some so the easiest thing you can do is make sure to have supplements and add these following foods into your diet.
Legumes are a great source of folate, iron and fiber. Folate is especially important during your pregnancy and many recommend you start taking folic acid even before you try to conceive.
Dairy like milk, cheese and yogurt are filled with nutrients that will support your baby’s growth and development.
Salmon is rich in Omega-3, protein and vitamins. This is a great food if you want to prevent premature delivery. It can also keep a tab on blood pressure and cholesterol.
Eggs are filled with many nutrients but they can also regulate cholesterol and help with brain development. Eggs are especially a great source of protein.
Chicken & Lean meat can be a great source of iron and high-quality protein. Chicken also has a low fat content.
Broccoli can be good in moderate amounts. It is high in folate, fiber and Vitamins A, K, C and B6.
Berries are filled with antioxidants, fiber and vitamins. This is a super food that you can enjoy for example with a bowl of yogurt! Vitamin C can also strengthen immunity and prevent infections during pregnancy. Blueberries are also rich in potassium which you need more while pregnant.
Veggies and Fruits are both filled with fiber, folate and vitamins. Like I mentioned earlier Vitamin C which many veggies and fruits have high amounts of is great for immunity. Try having mangoes, kiwis and oranges for example.
First of all avocados are a great source of folate, fiber and vitamins. This fruit is considered to have huge health benefits. You can enjoy it in your salad or with your scrambled eggs in the morning.
2.3L water is important while your body is going through big changes during pregnancy. Without the average 2.3l of water a day you might suffer from dehydration. Remember your body needs water to function and wash toxins out of your body.
Welcome to my blog! I write about healthy diets, weightloss and money tips. I have struggled for years to lose weight and tried many different diets. When I finally decided to focus more on my health than just wanting to lose weight I started losing weight naturally. It was a full lifestyle change. One key point through this transformation was basically going on a paleo diet. You might want to check out Dr. William Davis.
