One of the best foods you can eat while pregnant is.....EGGS!
Eggs contain more than 12 vitamins and minerals in addition to 6 grams of protein per egg. Protein is vital during pregnancy, especially during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters when your baby is growing at a remarkable rate!
Women need 25 more grams of protein during pregnancy, which makes a total of around 100 grams daily. Eggs are a great way to get some quality protein!!
Eggs are also rich in choline, which is important for the brain health and the overall growth of your baby.
Some eggs have Omega 3 fatty acids (they will state that on the packaging) which is another important nutrient for the healthy development of your baby's brain.
A lot of women find they have an aversion to meat during pregnancy, especially during the 1st trimester. Eggs are a great way to make sure you are getting some protein if you're not eating meat.
Try them all sorts of ways...scrambled, omelette, hard boiled, egg salad, on a salad. Add in a bunch of veggies so you're getting your greens as well!
