During pregnancy you’re in charge of getting nutrients for two people, but that doesn’t mean you need to EAT for two. It’s hard to stay balanced when you have a hungry baby causing cravings and playing with your body. But healthy eating is never more important than when you’re pregnant and immediately afterwards. Your baby, whether still in the oven, or beginning to nurse relies on you for their diet. That means to be careful that the extra calories you consume come from nutritious foods that contribute to your overall health and the health of your baby. Plus, eating right helps repair your body which has been through the ringer over the past 9 months. Check out this light, healthy lunch that both you and your babies will love!

The Avocado-Tuna Salad

1 Avocado

1 Tomatoe

1 Small can of Tuna

1/2 Cup of corn

Salt

Pepper

Avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E- an essential vitamin that protects against many diseases and helps maintain overall health; plus its delicious.  Add some Tuna to your salad to get that rich source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids.

Papaya- Strawberry Paradise

6-10 Strawberries

1/2 Cup of water

1 tablespoon of sugar or splenda

This delicious juice is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth plus it’s healthy too! You can use a juicer or just a regular blender.  Papayas are an excellent source of dietary fiber and vitamins.  It is also very rich in antioxidant nutrients, not to mention papaya works magic on strengthening the immune system preventing the recurrent colds and flu.  FYI: Lime helps with digestion and skincare!

Shawl: Seraphine Maternity | Dress: Victoria’s Secret Clothing | Shoes: Old, similar style here

As a new mamma or soon-to-be,  when nothing seems to fit, the idea of having to build a new wardrobe can be terribly overwhelming, not to mention stressful. While it may seem like stocking up on maternity clothes is the way to go, the key here is to invest in pieces that can be worn in many different ways, and most importantly, a piece that is sure to stay in your closet even after the bump disappears.

A piece that I personally love was given to me by Seraphine Maternity and its fast becoming one of my favorite items! Say hello to where fashion meets functionality! The Breastfeeding Bamboo Shawl not only serves as a nursing cover, but get this, it also works as a beautifully draped shawl and scarf! And the best part is that it will work for you during pregnancy, post-pregnancy, nursing and beyond!

  • As a shawl, it oozes elegance and grace.
  • As a nursing cover,  it provides stylish functionality and privacy.
  • As a scarf, it finishes off any outfit with a classy touch.

You’ll love snuggling up your baby under this soft and delicate wrap. And because it comes in this gorgeous latte color, it can work as a neutral and go with almost any ensemble!
