Healthy Recipes for Pregnancy When You Have Morning Sickness!
Morning sickness is a pain!
You’re nauseous all day long and could vomit at the thought of something, anything really. A scent, or certain smell from the kitchen, that you used to love, could now be sending you to the bathroom to throw up what ever you just ate, or didn’t eat!
It’s not fun, to say the least. But, you still need to eat, and at least try to keep some food, and liquids, down. That’s why the recipes below are so great!
The recipes below have ingredients in them to help combat morning sickness, keep you hydrated, and get some nutrients to stay in your body for yourself and unborn baby! Go check them out.
Eating Well During Pregnancy!
Once you’re over your morning sickness, there are even more healthy recipes you can try for getting the needed nutrients to your unborn baby!
Many will include beets; beets are like a super food for pregnant women!
Unfortunately, for many people beets are an acquired taste. Meaning you may have to try them quite to a few times to learn how to enjoy them.
But, beets provide many nutrients, such as:
- folic acid (vital to help prevent birth defects)
- vitamin C (to boost immunity)
- fiber (to help avoid constipation)
- iron (to help prevent anemia)
- potassium (for much needed energy and electrolyte
So, to say the least, if you can get beets into your diet during pregnancy (or anytime) it will greatly benefit you!
To make it a bit easier, check out the recipes below! (The smoothie recipe at the bottom is my own; it may not look good, but myself and 3 year old actually love it!)
*If you’ve never used beets before, or can’t stand the smell of roasting beets; get canned, or frozen if available, just make sure there’s no other added ingredients to it.
