Healthy Snacks

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.

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.

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.
