Juices for pregnancy: Recipes / Preparations

First, it’s worth mentioning a few points:

  • Juices don’t replace meals.
  • Before starting each recipe, wash hands, cooking utensils and electrical appliances to use. Also, it’s important to wash the fruits and vegetables. Thus, you’ll be removing microbes and avoiding possible diseases (such as toxoplasmosis, which can be transmitted to the fetus and have serious consequences).
  • If you want more liquid results, add a little water.
  • In each recipe, blend everything as much as possible and don’t filter it. By doing so, you’ll be taking advantage of most of the available fiber.
  • Juices should be drunk as soon as they’re prepared.
  • If you include them in your diet, you can drink a different one every morning and see how you feel. By doing this you’ll be incorporating the nutrients from various foods throughout the days.

Finally, to make each juice, simply prepare the ingredients and blend until smooth.

Now, let’s start with the recipes!

  • Proteins.
  • Fiber.
  • Carbohydrates.
