Smoothies for a Healthy Pregnancy Diet
Eating a healthy pregnancy diet can seem difficult. You know you need lots of nutrition for your body and your baby, but sometimes you just don't feel like eating things you know you need. One of the best ways to give your body a boost of nutrients during pregnancy is to enjoy a smoothie made with raw milk products and a bit of sweetener.
A daily smoothie can be a great way to increase your intake of valuable minerals and vitamins during pregnancy, including, especially, calcium. You can also add fresh fruit and vegetable juices to your smoothie, so that you can increase your intake of fruits and vegetables in a way that's easy for your body to digest and process.
Because a smoothie is made of ingredients that are largely easy to digest, it may not cause you to have as much nausea as whole foods that take longer for your body to process. During pregnancy, you often have nausea because the progesterone in your bloodstream slows down your digestion. This is actually a good thing, since it helps your body absorb every last nutrient it possibly can so that you can get those nutrients to your baby. However, slower digestion means foods can get backed up in your stomach, causing you to feel uncomfortable and nauseous.
Luckily, it's possible to have a healthy pregnancy diet without suffering from as much nausea if you focus on getting your body easier-to-digest foods during times when you're feeling particularly nauseous. Since proteins can be some of the hardest foods to digest, but your body still needs plenty of protein during pregnancy, you should look to dairy-based smoothies to help you get the pregnancy nutrition you need without unsettling your stomach too much.
One Possible Smoothie Recipe
One smoothie recipe advocated by the author of Healing Our Children, a pregnancy nutrition guide packed with information on what you can eat to give your body and your baby the best, is the following:
- 6-8 ounces of raw milk
- 1-3 ounces of raw cream
- 1-2 raw eggs
- 1 drop vanilla extract
- A bit of unheated honey
Questions About This Recipe
If you've been given conventional pregnancy diet tips from your doctor or midwife, this smoothie might look very suspicious to you at first. It does, after all, contain raw milk and raw eggs! However, both of these things can be very healthy for your body when they come from natural, organic sources.
Raw milk is much healthier for you than processed milk, and it will not cause disease or infection as long as it's sourced from a farm that is meant to produce raw milk products and that raises milk cows in a natural, healthy, wholesome environment. Raw eggs are also good for your body, so long as they come from natural, organic sources and not egg farms where chickens are packed into tiny disease-breeding coops.
One thing to note, though, is that raw eggs may actually cause you to have flu like symptoms and diarrhea, which are all signs of detoxification. This is just a sign that your system is being cleaned out. However, if possible, you may want to incorporate raw eggs into your pre-pregnancy diet so that your body can grow accustomed to them before you are pregnant. Start out slowly when it comes to raw eggs, and you'll be able to enjoy this excellent source of protein and valuable vitamins and minerals.
