I just finished reading the pregnancy section of Nina Planck's book Real Food for Mother and Baby. I really love the way she breaks down what the baby needs and when. I'm trying to get plenty of B, C, and E vitamins throughout the pregnancy and during the first trimester I am focusing on adding vitamins A and D which build the baby's organs and toes (butter, eggs, pork, and seafood are excellent sources).
Breakfast I'll have a fruit and milk smoothie with high vitamin butter oil and cod liver oil (for vit A & D) and a couple of scrambled eggs with grassfed butter and raw cheddar. I usually add coconut oil to the smoothie but am out atm...I'm also adding in a caffeinated tea with cream this morning to see if I can get something going in the lower digestive tract iykwim?...
Snack will be smoked salmon and cream cheese on sprouted grain toast
Lunch will be left over stew
Snack will be fruit, cashews (folic acid!) and cheese
Dinner will be a roasted pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes and garlicky green beans
The second trimester will find me focusing on protein and calcium to build the baby's bones and muscles and the third trimester I will be focusing on fish, fish, fish and more fish to build a nice intelligent brain
