Depends on recipe: During pregnancy you are supposed to avoid soft cheeses: feta, brie, camembert, blue-veined cheeses and mexican style cheeses such as queso fresco, queso blanco and panela that do not state they are pasteurized as these cheeses can harbor listeria which can increase your risk for preterm labor, miscarriage and stillbirth.

Ate granola bars w/ brown rice syrup daily (sometimes 2/day) including when pregnant. Worried about arsenic (also ate cereal with rice daily).?

Likely not an issue: The reports linking rice consumption to arsenic has scared many folks, but the data is not completely clear.

Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.

Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.

Sounds good to me: I recommend people eat fruits & vegetables of all colors as the colors are made by different beneficial micronutrients.

You might also consider seeing a good homeopath for your thought issues. ...Read more
