CALCIUM

Star quality: When you don’t get enough calcium from the foods you eat, your baby will leach it from your bones. “Calcium is a mineral that’s vital to developing strong bones and teeth, as well as proper nerve function and normal heartbeat,” says Kimberly A. Tessmer, R.D., L.D., author of Tell Me What to Eat If I Am Trying to Conceive . Plus, it’s linked to a reduced risk of hypertension and preeclampsia in moms. “Spread your calcium-rich foods throughout the day because your body can only absorb so much at one time,” suggests Tessmer. And note: Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption, so make sure your milk is fortified.

Extra flour for rolling (you can use almond flour or another glu-ten-free flour like rice flour)

  1. In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, baking soda and salt. In a smaller bowl, cream together sugar, butter and egg. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Divide cookie dough into 3 parts and refrigerate 1 hour.
  2. Place figs in a bowl, cover with hot water and soak for 10 minutes. Drain, then place filling ingredients (including figs) in food processor and blend until a smooth paste forms. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Dust rolling surface with gluten-free flour. Roll out 1 part of dough into a 10-inch-by-5-inch rectangle, using as much flour as needed to prevent sticking. Spread ⅓ of the filling evenly down the right side (lengthwise) of the rectangle. Fold the dough in half down the long side and gently press the seam together. Repeat with 2 remaining parts of dough. Cut each log into 10 equal parts and place fold-down on parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, rotating halfway, until golden around edges.
