Welcome back!! So happy to kick of 2016 with our Pregnancy Nutrition Series on the blog and the VLOG!!
This is an invitation to join me on our social media platforms for daily inspiration. I am not selling you anything...and I hope to inspire you to try new recipes and buy healthy, whole food for you and your Sweet Pea's nourishment <3
You and your baby ARE what you eat...and Dr. Brewer pioneered a high protein, whole food diet for pregnancy.
What the studies show:
We know that a high protein, whole food diet like the Brewer Diet reduce and can potentially eliminate the complications of pregnancy and childbirth. Studies have shown a reduction of pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, low-birth weight, still birth, and infant mortality. Infant outcomes are markedly different when women eat sensible, whole food diets without restricting their salt.
75-100 grams of protein per day
Eat a variety of whole foods to have bioavailable building blocks immediately accessible for you and your Sweet Pea to stay healthy!

Meet your vitamin+mineral needs with food so that your pre-natal vitamin is covers the gaps vs. having it supply most of the nutrient needs during pregnancy with processed vitamins+minerals
