There is so much conflicting advice about what mothers-to-be should be eating. It appears to change on a weekly basis. For lots of pregnant women, eating right can be a real challenge, especially if you suffer from morning sickness or food aversions.
One piece of advice, which rarely changes and is generally agreed across the board, is that mothers need the best nutrition possible.
1 Small Handful Spinach
1/4 Medium (PEELED) Pineapple
4 Spears Asparagus
1 Golden Delicious Apple
One Handful of Fresh Peas
One Handful of Sunflower Seeds
3 – 4 Ice Cubes
How to create:
Juice the lot slowly to get maximum juice. Put the sunflower seeds into the blender along with the ice and avocado. Blend until smooth.
A little fact about this smoothie for you and the little one:
Sunflower seeds may be tiny, but they pack a nutritious punch. They are a great source of many vitamins and nutrients, including over 100 percent of the daily recommended intake of copper, manganese, and selenium. Sunflower seeds are also a high source of folic acid, proteins, vitamin B 6, Vitamin E, and many minerals such as iron, zinc, and calcium.
Oh and your little one might also like to know that Asparagus is also a good source of Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, and Selenium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper, and Manganese.
And as we all know that Avocado is a superfood, because it owns a lot of nutrients and antioxidants, such as folic acid, Omega 3, magnesium, potassium, lutein, and fiber. Avocado is rich in A, C, D, E, K vitamins, and B Group vitamins too. And that’s not all as it owns an important presence of copper, manganese, and iron.
