pregnancy cravings survival guide
I wanted to do a pregnancy cravings survival guide that takes common pregnancy cravings and puts a healthy spin on them. I am now in my 8th month of pregnancy and the recipes below have been what I have used to satisfy cravings while staying on a healthy path during this journey.

Each category is a craving I have had with the recipes I have used to satisfy those cravings over the last 8 months.

I have solutions for craving pasta, ice cream, chocolate and so much more. Yes, you can satisfy yourself during pregnancy while staying on a healthy diet.

– smoothies

I have been loving smoothies for breakfast during my first trimester (when it was difficult to eat) and now for my mid-morning snack.

I love adding greens to any smoothie recipe to add that extra nourishment. Some of my favorite recipes are linked below.

I also love adding 1 scoop of protein powder to my ice cream so that I can ensure baby is getting everything she needs.
