Pregnancy can be a really challenging time, you can go from wanting to eat a truckload of junk to totally hating the sight of it. Don’t worry it's normal and almost everyone goes through it.
That being said, you must take care of your body well and eat food that is rich in nutritional value. Below we give you a list of 5 superfoods that will totally help you rock your pregnancy:
Fruits are full of all kinds of healthy nutrients (for mom and baby); we especially like avocados because they contain healthy omega-3 fats, which are good for helping the development of your baby’s brain. Like guacamole? No problem, just easy on the chips.
2. Chia Seeds
This grain contains fibre and omega-3 fats, which have been shown to help ward off pregnancy depression. The seeds also help inhibit the speed in which sugar is absorbed, to help your baby grow with a fewer chance of swings in blood sugar. Mix them in yogurt or sprinkle on salads/milkshake.
3. Coconut Water
Coconut water during pregnancy is one of the best sources of nutrients as it is a mixture of chlorides, electrolytes, Riboflavin, Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin C. It also helps increase the baby weight and is tasty as well. Don't forget to scoop out the 'malai' from the skin of the coconut.
