Pregnancy Diet

Once you get pregnant you don't only eat to nourish yourself but your baby as well. So many people believe whatever they are eating is enough for the baby as the baby gets the nutrients it needs from your body but that means your own body might be running low on many key nutrients and leave you running flat, with potential anemia and other health issues.

Being mindful of what I am eating being pregnant was even more important than before but I looked at food in a different way- instead of focusing on organic/clean foods, I looked at the foods that will nourish my body and my babies the most. (Also being pregnant with twins means you need a lot more calories and other nutrients!) Your body will also crave the foods you are more likely to be deficient in.
