Pregnant during summer? Delicious, healthy and easy summer recipes!

A possible effect of pregnancy is the increase of appetite. Usually, the pregnancy brings about a general appetite, making you craving for everything you see or think of: chocolate, ice cream, different fruits, cakes, etc. or for a specific meal, vegetable or fruit, such as, for example, the water melon.

If you’re pregnant during summer, you may consider yourself lucky because this season teems with fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables, giving you and your baby the opportunity to enjoy a healthy and tasty diet. Tomatoes, cucumbers, marrows, cabbage, green apples, water melons, forest fruits, all fresh and tasty may be eaten during this season. However, all you need to do is to carefully wash them before consumption.

What can be more refreshing and relaxing, in a hot summer day, than a cold, delicious vegetable or fruit juice? And you talk about the orange juice, which is highly recommended for all pregnant women, due to its rich contents of vitamin C and folic acid. It is also rich in potassium which helps to the decrease of the blood pressure, a frequent problem of pregnancy.
