Grazing between meals will not only keep hanger and nausea at bay, but it’s a brilliant way to sneak in more nutrients, too. Before you hit the kitchen and start building these tasty eats, let’s break down why they’re so beneficial for moms-to-be (and their babes on the way).
1⁄2 cup ice
1 cup frozen mango
2 cups kale, roughly chopped
1⁄2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
1 cup fortified orange juice
Add ice to the blender, and pulse until crushed. Next add mango, kale, ginger and orange juice. Blend until smooth and frothy. (Adjust flavor as needed—more mango for sweetness, more ginger for spice, or more OJ for acidity.) Serve immediately.
