Whole foods. I always recommend a diet of whole foods ... Real food. Not food that comes out of a box or bag or package. Eat real meat and vegetables. A small amount of fruit. Dairy if you tolerate it. Lots of water. Cook and eat at home not at restaurants. :) ask around to find your local farmers and make friends with them!
Healthy natural food. A woman should eat healthy, natural foods before, during, and after pregnancy. Healthy usually means low in fat (especially low in animal fats), a moderate amount of protein, and a moderate amount of whole grain carbohydrates (but very little sugar). Natural means unprocessed, with little salt, sauces, or preservatives. Salt may increase water retention or swelling. Hot sauce may worsen heartburn.
