Protein is very important especially while you have morning sickness and having fast digesting protein becomes very important because it can become hard to eat a lot of satiating protein while you’re nauseous. Generally speaking if you avoid unhealthy foods though your morning sickness will be far less severe. You should consider a change in your diet before getting pregnant if that is an option for you.
Coconut Flour pancakes are an awesome choice because coconut flour has protein packed into it, so that you can enjoy pancakes with some healthy raspberries, blueberries and/or blackberries as well as some maple syrup and still get a healthy amount of protein and fibre.
For the Peanut Butter and Banana Protein Shake the recipe is really easy. Take one whole banana, two tablespoons of peanut butter or more depending on how peanut buttery you want it and put in one scoop of whey protein. (25 grams) and then 1 to 1 ½ cups of pasteurized milk. Blend that until smooth and go to town. It will taste like a peanut butter cup, while providing you a tonne of potassium and easy to digest protein.
- Panko Fried Chicken, Green Beans and Potatoes.
- Lemon Chicken and veggies.
- Stir-fry on white rice
There is a common theme here, you want to give yourself a good amount of protein to promote healthy growth in your baby as well as give you the satiety to avoid binge eating. Have real healthy clean proteins and a light amount of starchy carbs while packing on the veggies to keep your fibre levels up.
When it comes to healthy meals for pregnancy. The key really is getting ample protein, fibre and water while avoiding junk and taking your prenatal vitamins with your biggest meal of the day. Follow these steps and you’ll be well on your way to success.
