Favorite healthy food during pregnancy Faye's Mama 1 child; Springfield, MO, United States 4569 posts

I have been craving (and eating) a lot of junk food. We eat usually pretty healthy but sometimes we get take out (last night was Hardees. f**king yum).
I usually try and eat: nuts, dairy of some kind, lots of fruits, dried dates/jujubes... etc.
I am a carb fanatic so rice at dinner (steamed white. Dh will not switch to brown) and I usually eat toast with breakfast.



So what were some of your favorite foods to eat during pregnancy that were healthy? I need more ideas.

Not sure how healthy it is, but my most recent craving has been bananas cut up into a glass of milk. YUM

It is hard for me because I've been so sick. But the things that never fail me are dark green salads, carrots, tomatoes (which I despise normally but crave when I'm pregnant) and oatmeal. I also love granola but it can make you gassy if you eat too much.

That's my favorite flavored kind, I've been getting the plain kind lately and experimenting with flavored crackers with it. hahahaa

I really love munching on toasted nori, it's full of iron and is good for you. :) I'm also enjoying mangos, pears, oranges and salads with dried fruit and nut toppings. My homemade greek yoghurt with mango is especially delicious. Hope some of these sound tempting. The nori is kinda crispy so it's reminiscent to munching on chips. :)

Ugh, I can't stomach seaweed. Dh really enjoys it though. I need to find dried mangos. We brought some back with us from China and we have eaten them already, haha.
