Berry Fresca with Chia Seeds

A traditional Mexican drink, chia frescas are a great source of sustained energy. Not to mention, they’re super refreshing on a hot summer day. Blend well to make sure all the nutrients of the chia are absorbed.

4 Romantic Dinner Ideas for You and Your Baby Daddy

Caramel-Apple Bread Pudding

Bread puddings are super easy; you can’t really screw this recipe up. Assemble it ahead of time and throw it in the oven as you start eating so it’s ready when you’re finished with your main course. The reheated leftovers will taste great later on too.

Steamed Tilapia with Fresh Ginger & Lime

At the start of my pregnancy, I craved straightforward, flavorful food like this. The fish is low in mercury, which makes it a great choice for expectant women, and the en papillote technique looks dramatic, but anyone can do it.

Fennel-Crusted Roasted Chicken with Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Toasting the fennel gives it a nutty flavor, and when you mix it with butter, it turns into a tasty rub. Experiment by adding some lemon to the butter, or throw in chili pepper or paprika. You can make more rub than you need and keep it in the fridge for all sorts of things.

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.

Preggo-Friendly Lemon Cookies

Satisfy a yen for citrus, as well as your nesting urges, by making a batch of zingy vanilla-lemon cookies. They provide a hit of vitamin C, which is essential for tissue growth and helps your body (and therefore your growing baby!) absorb iron. Their tart flavor is easy on a queasy tummy—and they taste great.

Healthy Dessert: Walnut Banana Pudding

Bananas serve as a base and give body to many Organic Avenue smoothies; similarly they can work their magic in puddings to thicken and bind, while adding something sweet.
