Is spinache dip a good pregnancy food?

Is spinache dip a good pregnancy food?

If clean, yes: If you're sure it's clean, spinach dip can be fine to eat. However, there have been some outbreaks of listeria, a type of bacteria, in spinach and other fresh vegetables.

That means less sugars, less fruits and less carbs overall. ...Read more

Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?

In terms of sugar are apples, carrots, white peaches & tomatoes good for diabetics?

Good up to a point: Fruits are natural foods and are good, up to a point. Beyond that point, the sugars and starches in fruits will cause undesirably high blood sugars.
