Iris will be staying with me for a few weeks and I am sooooo excited. What a great time for us to bond and discuss Lily’s Birth Plan!!!
BUT, what the heck do I feed a pregnant chick???
I eat mostly vegtables, with occasional cheese and rarely any meat. I use Fat Flush Foods as a food bible and eat those foods most often.
But Iris is making a baby, not flushing fat. I looked through the Diet and Nutrition books at Barnes and Noble and choose The 100 Healthiest Foods to Eat During Prenancy by Bowden and Tannis.
Eat the best foods for your baby’s development!
Nutrition is never more critical than during pregnancy. What you choose to put on your plate affects you and your baby’s health not just in utero but for years to come. However, many nutritional guidelines for pregnancy are complex, confusing, and offer an uninspiring list of things to eat for the next nine months.
Backed up by the latest nutritional research, this guide debunks pregnancy food myths and uncovers a number of surprising food choices that are superfoods for expectant mothers.
This one-of-a-kind nutrition reference guide is also packed with helpful quick-reference charts and sidebars, highlighting healthy (but no less delicious!) substitutes for commonly craved foods like ice cream and potato chips. You’ll also discover the most up-to-date research regarding pregnancy dilemmas, such as how to get more omega-3s from fish in your diet while avoiding mercury. It’s pregnancy nutrition made easy!
Instead of a bunch of receipies, this book lists foods to include (and exclude) for a prego mama. So Iris and I can use the list to make food combinations that we like!!
