Blueberry Ginger Smoothie

I love the combination of ginger and blueberries, they are a match made in heaven in this Blueberry Ginger Smoothie. The blueberries are sweet and the ginger adds a really nice spiciness. If you are pregnant, this smoothie is a perfect meal replacement for those days that morning sickness is ruining your appetite. It is super easy to drink and contains nausea soothing ginger. I also like to add protein powder to make it more filling and chia seeds for added fibre and blood sugar regulation.

Health benefits of dark leafy green veggies during pregnancy

Dark leafy green veggies like spinach, kale, Swiss chard and other greens are fantastic for pregnancy.

  • They are packed with essential pregnancy nutrients like vitamin A, C, and K.
  • They contain folate which is an important nutrient that reduces the risk of neural tube defects.
  • Consuming green, leafy vegetables has also been linked to a reduced risk of low birth weight.

During the first trimester, you might not find greens appealing. I recommend adding greens to your smoothies like this Blueberry Ginger Smoothie. Pureeing them and adding them to pasta sauce or other meals is another great way to get dark leafy greens into your diet.

Once you are able to eat regularly again, dark leafy greens can be added to eggs, soups, sandwiches, stir frys, enjoyed as a side dishe, and in salads.

If you are pregnant and nausea is taking over your life, you will love my free eBook Natural Remedies for Pregnancy Symptoms.

Nausea during the first trimester is very common. The technical term is morning sickness, but nausea can hit any time of the day. For most people, it goes away after the first trimester is over but for others, it lasts for the entire pregnancy.

In my free eBook Natural Remedies for Pregnancy Symptoms, I share 7 ways to naturally prevent pregnancy related nausea.
