Super Foods For Pregnant Ladies

I’ve been doing  a ton of research on important foods for woman to eat during and after pregnancy, and with New Years resolutions coming up I thought I’d share some of the top foods to eat…

1. Salmon!!!

Fish is incredibly important while pregnant as it has key minerals and oils (omega fatty acids) that help the baby’s visual and brain development as well as the mother’s skin, energy and hormonal balance. Many woman don’t eat enough fish for fear of mercury, but it’s all about picking the right fish. Salmon is typically a very safe option, whereas species like albacore and swordfish are high in mercury. To learn the mercury content in seafood, visit gotmercury.org.

2. Broccoli

Like most green veggies, broccoli is filled with antioxidants, folate and calcium…all important for the baby’s (or babies) development.

3. Beans

Nutrient rich with things like folate, calcium and B vitamins.

4. Blueberries

Super rich in antioxidants as well as nutrient rich, great for brain development and the immune system.

5. Oatmeal

Filled with fiber, folate, b vitamins and helps woman fill up with milk while nursing.

6. Walnuts

Full of omega fatty acids (different than fish), which are important for visual and brain development.

I highly recommend oatmeal with blueberries and walnuts for breakfast. Delicious and helped my nausea!
