Re: Powerful Eats for You and Baby

  • So helpful - Thank you!

  • I'm a vegetarian and I'm worried about getting enough protein. Any suggestions for meat free high protein meals/snacks? 
    I'd suggest 2% greek yogurt. It has tons of protein and is an easy snack. I'd say avoid any yogurts with no fat... the fat is good for balancing out the sugar. Another winner would be homemade hummus. Lots of chickpeas and tahini is basically seed butter. Added bonus: vitamin c from the lemons. :)

  • I'm living off green smoothies & hard boiled eggs... for now. The morning sickness hasn't set in yet *knocks on wood*

  • I've been eating healthy 5-6 out of 7 days a week but cravings force me to indulge in salty, spicy, or sour snacks on my "cheat" day. My doc didn't seem to think the occasional indulgence was too much to worry about so I give in when a craving hits too hard to ignore!

    Also a veg. I use myfitnesspal daily to make sure my protein is hit. I've been well above my minimum most days. For me it's a lot of eggs, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, skim milk, peanut butter and veggies, nuts and seeds, and legumes (some protein, fiber, and carbs). It probably helps that I haven't had any food aversions. Many seem to develop aversions/nausea to protein rich foods. :/
  • Any low sugar, no caffeine pops that are ok to drink? I'm an avid Dr. Pepper drinker and quitting cold turkey has been hard for me.

  • I would also add chia seeds (add them to greek yogurt for an omega-3 boost), edamame, black strap molasses (in place of honey or sugar as a sweetener), and mangoes! All have huge health perks for preggo ladies and can add some flavor/texture to your meals!
  • I make a smoothie. I put a ton of spinach (folic acid) and berries. I also use yogurt and almond milk. I put rolled oats and honey as well as a banana. My super food smoothie :) plus prunes in there can help with the dreaded constipation lol

  • Olive garden....thats my craving. Luckily just the soup and salad eats. But that's good for you...right?!?!bwahah
  • I eat quite healthy already and thankfully have no aversions so far! I bought bread already. My husband and I don't really eat bread but my first pregnancy was the same, craving sandwiches of all kinds! Looking for a substitute for orange juice though to avoid all that sugar!

  • @AMCsquared Feta cheese actually is ok as long as it is pasteurized.
