Pregnancy Recipes for Health

Are you looking for delicious, healthy recipes to fuel your body during pregnancy and give your baby the nutrients she needs? Then you’ve come to the right place.

While getting the full spectrum of nutrients everyday is essential, there are a few nutrients that play an especially important role in a healthy pregnancy.

Healthy Recipes for Your Developing Baby

A healthy pregnancy diet is rich in folate to ensure healthy cellular development and protect against neural tube defects. It is also high in EPA & DHA – the essential long chain omega-3 fats that promote healthy brain and eye development. And it is a good source of protein ensuring that your little one gets all the amino acid building blocks necessary for healthy development.

Here are the specific criteria for Pregnancy Recipes at Healing Gourmet:

  • CELL-PROTECTING FOLATE:  Provides an excellent source of folate per serving
  • BRAIN-BOOSTING EPA & DHA: Provides an excellent source of EPA/DHA
  • BUILDING BLOCK PROTEIN:  Provides a good source of protein

Along with enjoying a nutrient-rich diet, regular exercise, optimal vitamin D levels (ideally obtained through sun exposure) and a whole food multi-vitamin supplement is also recommended. And be sure to avoid high mercury fish (like shark, swordfish, tuna, king mackerel, tilefish and others), alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and soft, raw or unpasteurized cheese (like Brie, Camembert, feta or goat cheese).
