Not only does this recipe have about 50 percent of your daily fiber, but it also contains one-third of your daily potassium goal. Potassium plays an important role in pregnancy, as it helps regulate fluid and electrolyte balance; however, consuming too much potassium in the first trimester of pregnancy may be associated with a higher risk of developing gestational diabetes and severe preeclampsia.6-7

Talk to Your Doctor

Always consult your doctor for nutritional guidance if you have any questions or concerns about your diet during pregnancy. Some women may have different nutritional needs or restrictions, so there is no “one-size-fits-all” diet for expecting moms. In general, women who are pregnant should eat a varied and balanced diet, avoid overly processed foods, and follow the advice of their doctor or nutritionist. Taking a prenatal vitamin may also benefit expecting moms by supplementing their nutritional needs and helping their bodies absorb essential vitamins and minerals.
