Healthy eating through a summer pregnancy

I found out I was pregnant in December. But I gave birth to my baby boy in August. My baby bump was bigger in the Summer. Hot, tropical, Caribbean days that can make anyone dissapear from sweating all day long.

What kept me alive during the last 2 months, was eating plenty of fruits rich in water and drinking water, gallons of it.

I have another blogpost where I mention it all about staying comfy, fashion and fresh in the Summer.

Here I’m going to mention the foods that gave me a balanced water and vitamin intake to have a healthy pregnancy during the Summer:

  1. Watermelon
  2. Papaya
  3. Bananas
  4. Acai
  5. Strawberries
  6. Red apples
  7. Mangoes
  8. Avocado
  9. Lettuce
  10. Hearts Romaine
  11. Beets
  12. Carrots
  13. Blueberries
  14. Oranges

Tips:

Have a fruit bowl in the morning. You can use honey and granola as toppings. Yum!

Or have a fruity snack when you are at work and have some orange or strawberries in a snack bag.

I also loooved to make smoothies in the evenings, to have as a dessert after dinner.

I delighted myself with apples as a snack at work.
This one is a delicious banana smoothie I bought at a whole foods’ market and restaurant

Try any of these combinations:

Papaya & Bananas

Strawberry, banana & papaya

Acai, strawberry, papaya, mangoes

You’ll get obsessed about these flavors all together!💜💖💗

Eat your favorite yogurt with any fruit you like.

Fruit salad with your favorite protein , like chicken or salmon. Try it with lettuce, hearts romaine, with strawberries, orange bites and mangoes.

Blueberry yogurt and brownie crumbs (I cheated a little haha)

Do you like fresh fruit juice? Try mixing beets with carrots and oranges to boost your inmune system.

Enjoy mixing all these delicious fruits while having a blast during the Summer without missing any of the nutrients you need to stay healthy for you and your baby.
