Immune-Boosting Delicious Recipes for Pregnancy During Covid-19

Today more than ever, building strong immune systems is important for everyone, particularly expecting mothers. We are all cooking and eating at home more than ever before due to Covid-19. Pregnant women are a greater risk for complications related to Covid-19, so dining at home is even more important for them. Eating for Pregnancy: Your Essential Month-by-Month Nutrition Guide and Cookbook, an award-winning nutrition-cookbook by Catherine Jones and perinatal nutritionist, Rose Ann Hudson, RD, LD, offers moms-to-be 150 nutrient-dense, immune-boosting, delicious recipes to help.

EATING FOR PREGNANCY: Your Essential Month-by-Month Nutrition Guide and Cookbook is the ultimate no-nonsense nutrition guide and cookbook for moms-to-be.

Immune-boosting nutrients, that have numerous other benefits as well, include zinc (meats and legumes), selenium (chia seeds and seafood), iron (red meats and iron-fortified breakfast cereals), folate (lentils and asparagus), vitamins A (sweet potatoes), B6 (poultry and oats), C (citrus fruits and broccoli), D (egg yolks and fortified milk, plus sun exposure), and E (sunflower seeds and almonds). These essential nutrients help the immune system in different ways by working as an antioxidant to protect healthy cells, supporting growth and activity of immune cells, and producing antibodies.

Eating for Pregnancy incorporates these powerful nutrients to make menu planning and cooking a snap for all eating preferences and gestational diabetes. Delicious, easy-to-make recipes that are designed to boost your immune system include: Good Morning Sunshine Smoothie Bowl, Mango-Chia Smoothie, No-Bake Nutty Energy Balls, Perfect Homemade Granola, Mango Tango Lime Spritzer, Spinach and Cheese Omelet for One, Awesome Chicken Burgers, Make it Again Meatloaf, Sweet Potato Rounds, Salmon with Artichoke-Olive Tapenade, Superhealthy Lentil Salad, Favorite Broccoli Slaw, Dreamy Chia Pudding with Berries,  and Baby-Blue-Berry Buckle.
