All right, I have to admit that this topic is going to be deeply interesting only for a special subset of my readers: mamas-to-be/pregnant mamas, this is all for you and your unborn babes.
Pregnancy can be a wild roller coaster of hormones, emotions and cravings. It can be the most amazing, joyful and wonderful experience OR it can be the longest and most excruciating 9+ months of your life. Or somewhere in the middle, depending on the day.
I really hope the former situation is true for you. Did you know that what you eat can actually make a difference to your pregnancy experience? You often hear, “you are what you eat,” and when you consider that all of your baby’s (or babies’) tissues are made up of building blocks from the foods that you consume, it’s literally true!
Of course, please discuss ANY nutritional recommendations or strategies with your primary health care providers. These are just my personal top tips as a nutrition coach AND as a mom.
