|Spanakopita without the pastry|
Because of my age I'm at higher risk for pregnancy complications such as gestational diabetes, placenta praevia, pre-eclampsia and premature birth. The other diet I looked at was the Brewer diet which claims sufficient maternal nutrition plays a major factor in preventing such complications.
While trying to conceive I limited my intake of dairy and revisiting the eating guidelines for these diets now I'm pregnant has prompted me to include more oily fish, eggs and dairy in my diet.
And you can never have too many greens can you?
|Nicoise Salad with Tinned Salmon and Avocado|
This Indonesian Gado Gado salad is based on the same ingredients as the Nicoise - eggs, potato, green beans and greens but with a spicy peanut sauce instead of the fish.
