FOOD / Foods to eat during pregnancy

ALIMENTATION / Les aliments à privilégier pendant la grossesse
We recently learned that a close friend of ours was pregnant...
We reminded her of the best foods to integrate into her daily life for a fulfilling pregnancy...

Carbohydrates for energy:
Potato, wholemeal bread, brown rice, semi-wholemeal dough, sweet potato and legumes (such as lentils, chickpeas etc.)

Fibers to maintain comfortable transit:
Cereals (whole) and legumes, red and green beans, leeks, fennel, apricots, prunes, figs

Proteins for placental cells and help your baby's brain tissue development:
Chicken, tofu, oilseeds (almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds...), chickpeas, spelled, buckwheat, quinoa

Calcium to help your baby's skeletal development and preserve your teeth:
Oats, almonds, soy, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, spinach, sesame seeds (or gomasio), dairy products (for those who can tolerate them)

Lipids always for energy and to promote the development of the baby's brain:
Salmon (well cooked), tuna (always well cooked), rapeseed oil, olive oil

Magnesium: dark chocolate (better if more than 70% cocoa), green vegetables, lentils, cereals...

Iron : spices (and in particular cumin and curry), spirulina, thyme, olives, eggs, sesame, dark chocolate (always better if more than 70% cocoa ), cashew nuts..

Iodine , tasting cod (cod) but also fish! (2 times max per week during pregnancy because too many heavy metals according to health recommendations)

So get to your stove, and above all... have fun!

Happy to bloom!
