Eating Right FOR YOU!

September 22, 2015

It’s all about you

 

With all the attention going to your baby, it’s easy to forget you’re still you once you’re pregnant. So here’s a little reminder to focus on yourself through eating well.

Did you know it’s easier for you eat five portions of fruit and veg a day than you think? A glass of unsweetened 100% fruit juice (150ml) counts as a portion. Cooking dishes mixed with vegetables also counts.

Some fat is good for you – but you should try to avoid saturated fats, which increase your blood cholesterol and your risk of developing heart disease. You can find the culprit in hard cheese, cakes, biscuits, cream and pies, to name a few. Instead, opt for vegetable oil, oily fish and avocados.

Some people trying to lose weight are under the misconception that skipping breakfast will help. Ironically, it makes thing worse. According to the NHS, research shows that eating breakfast in fact helps people control their weight. Smoothies are a great way to combine nutrition while contributing to your five-a-day intake. For instance, blend 40g of mango slices, 40g of peach slices (both frozen, fresh or tinned), 40g frozen spinach, a banana and 200ml of water to make a sweet and fruity green smoothie. This offers TWO of your five-a-day quota!
