Umenboshi for Morning Sickness

After you have tried eating small protein packed meals, crackers and hard candy another option might be this little fruit from Japan.

We called our local Asian/International grocery store to ask for “OO-meh BOH-shee”, which means ‘dried plum’. This is the container we found:

The sour and salt combo seems to calm the nausea. The fruit can be eaten itself or put into a scrambled egg or rice. If that is too much at first, just suck on the pit!!

Check out Dining Miss Jenna, she has really great info on Umenboshi.

  1. You might check out Ginger. Whether preggers or not, ginger is a natural for upset tummies, dizziness, + many other health benefits. Ginger tea is good to sip on & as you already know it’s yummy in green smoothies.
