Avoiding Commercial Grain Products During Pregnancy
Typically, pregnant women are told to avoid obvious food items, such as processed lunch meats and excessive amounts of caffeine, in their pregnancy diets. However, many women are never told about the dangers of commercial grain products for pregnancy and for health in general. According to the book Healing Our Children, which is full of information about what you should eat for the healthiest possible pregnancy, improperly prepared nut, seed, and grain products from the commercial foods industry may cause even more problems than other foods women are taught to avoid.
Commercial grain products and improperly prepared nut and seed products produce several different problems in the body. For one thing, if they are made with whole grains, which are generally considered to be cheaper, these products contain phytic acid. This naturally-occurring toxin binds with calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, and zinc in the intestinal tract, which means that these vital nutrients don't get absorbed into the bloodstream.
Besides this dangerous problem, commercial grain products are created using high heating methods, which destroys many of the inherent nutritional value of the grains, nuts, and seeds. Even breakfast cereals and granolas labeled organic are processed by these means and have little to no nutritional value. In fact, many grain products sold commercially have negative health effects because they're full of sugar, which causes imbalances in blood sugar and a host of other problems.
How to Eat Healthier Grains
There is no doubt that a healthy pregnancy diet includes grain products, as well as nuts and seeds. However, these things need to be prepared properly in order for them to be processed in your body most efficiently. For some grains, soaking and sprouting are sufficient, and others need to be fermented in order to be processed properly. The best way to get these healthy grain, nut, and seed products into your pregnancy diet is to learn to prepare them at home. Making your own homemade breads, granolas, and nut butters allows you to control the ingredients that go into your food and also saves you a lot of money in the long run!
Of course, your healthy pregnancy diet can't be based solely on grain and nut products! You need much more than that if you're going to have a completely healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. To find out more about what you need during pregnancy, check out Healing Our Children, for more information on the foods that make up the healthiest pregnancy diet.
