Whether you wake up nauseous or hungry, a healthy breakfast is essential if you’re pregnant. These easy-to-use and largely pre-cooked breakfast options are packed with essential nutrients to keep you healthy, support your baby’s growth, and start the day in the best possible way. Pregnancy Breakfast ideas will guide you towards better nutrition.
Breakfast with salmon and cream
Smoked salmon is not a good choice for pregnant women due to the risk of listeriosis. But that’s not a reason to miss out on the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon. These healthy fats are important for the development of your brain! Choose from a variety of cooked fish and enjoy with cream cheese on your favorite bagel. Look for mini bagels that are much closer to the size of the better serving than the large coffee variety. If you can find a variety of whole grains, you’ll get another nutritional bonus for you and your baby.
Is your morning crazy? It’s still not an excuse to skip breakfast, especially with this simple option. Make this oatmeal a day in advance and enjoy it by prepping your meals or parking it at your table. Mix 1/2 cup of oatmeal with 1/2 cup of milk in a jar, sprinkle with a tablespoon of chopped walnuts and rub into the center of an apple. Shake and refrigerate overnight and it’s ready: breakfast is served!
How about a glass of superfood in the morning? This shake is packed with vitamin C from fruit and protein and calcium from yogurt. And you probably know how important it is to have enough folic acid during pregnancy. Therefore, you should follow pregnancy breakfast ideas to properly regulate the required amount of folic acid. Leafy vegetables like spinach will serve the purpose. Chia seeds are an important plant source of omega-3s; beneficial fatty acids that scientists believe are essential. Blend 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 cup of yogurt, a kiwi, a handful of spinach and a tablespoon of chia seeds to make this super-charged smoothie.
Egg and cheese breakfast
If you’re having trouble getting enough vegetables during the day, try starting the day with a full serving. This burrito is also a source of protein. Eggs, beans and cheese help you get the extra 25 grams of protein you need now. To prepare, sprinkle with two scrambled eggs, two tablespoons of boiled beans (canned), two tablespoons of grated cheese such as cheddar cheese, and a medium tomato, diced into a tortilla. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and roll, folding up and down.
Breakfast with egg and avocado
Start your day with a beneficial dose of corine from eggs, a superfood for expectant mothers. It helps improve your brain function (so you never forget breakfast again) and discusses your baby’s brain development, especially in the last trimester. And your stomach will thank you for the fiber on all your toast and avocados.
Avocado with poached egg and toast
Start your day with a beneficial dose of choline from eggs, a superfood for expectant mothers. Recent research shows that we don’t get essential nutrients in the morning, so an egg yolk for breakfast contains about a quarter of the topping you need each day. It helps improve your brain function (so you never forget breakfast again) and discusses your baby’s brain development, especially in the last trimester. And your stomach will thank you for the fiber on all your toast and avocados.
