Lemony Quinoa Pilaf with Cauliflower and Pine Nuts

If you don't mind using another small skillet, toast the pine nuts in the olive oil and pour the hot mixture over the rest of the pilaf.

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Finally, a dessert that's just as good for your body as it is your taste buds. This decadent-tasting mousse gets its rich, creamy texture from avocado, which delivers potassium to fend off pregnancy leg cramps. It's also loaded with folate, an important nutrient for your baby's neural development. Look for avocados that aren't too hard or soft, and garnish your mousse with fresh fruit or coconut flakes.

Grilled Zucchini Salad with Walnuts, Pomegranates & Mint-Tahini Dressing

I love tahini as a base for my dressings. The pressed sesame lends a really creamy, earthy essence, and you don't need additional oil because it's high in good fat. My husband will make the dressing while I grill the zucchini - it's great teamwork.

Curry Egg Salad Wraps

A healthier take on the traditional sandwich stuffer, this recipe includes sunflower seeds to add crunch, plus vitamin E, which can help your offspring avoid asthma, and folate, which helps reduce the risk for neural-tube defects, such as spina bifida. Two large eggs per day deliver 250 milligrams of choline, more than half of the recommended daily pregnancy dose.

Sourdough Kale Strata

This casserole can be an easy, hearty breakfast if prepared for baking the day before, but it works for dinner, too. Kale contains key pregnancy nutrients calcium, folate and iron, which helps prevent your baby from developing iron-deficiency anemia. Plus, a single 70-calorie large egg contains 6 grams of protein.
