1. Very Veggie

Good for your baby’s nervous system

If you’re not in the mood for a huge bowl of salad, or if you’re suffering from morning sickness, this Very Veggie smoothie can provide you and your baby with the same level of nutrition in much less time. Spinach acts as the green base to this smoothie, and the plentiful colors and tastes come from the addition of celery, carrots, tomato, green onion, and parsley, which are all good for your baby-to-be’s nervous system.

YIELDS: 3–4 CUPS

1 cup spinach

2 stalks celery

2 carrots, peeled

1 tomato

1 green onion

1 small sprig parsley (optional)

1 cup purified water

  1. Combine the spinach, celery, carrots, tomato, green onion, parsley (if desired), and 12 cup water in a blender and blend until combined thoroughly.
  2. If necessary, continue adding remaining water while blending until desired texture is achieved.

THE POWER OF PARSLEY

That green garnish that arrives as a decoration on the side of your plate is not given the attention it deserves! This green leafy herb is rich in vitamins and minerals. In just one serving of this cleansing green, there are impressive amounts of vitamins K, C, and A, as well as iron and folate.

2. Go, Go, Garlic!

Good for strengthening your immune system

Yes, garlic is a great addition to your smoothie for a variety of reasons. One component of garlic contains allicin, a phytochemical that strengthens your immune system during pregnancy by fighting off free radicals in your body that can cause cell damage. Garlic can also be used to treat hypertension during pregnancy, which is a major concern in the third trimester. The bonus benefit of garlic is that if you eat large amounts of it during pregnancy, your baby may exhibit a preference for the flavor. In addition, the tomatoes and basil found in this recipe contain vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant to help strengthen your and your baby-to-be’s immune systems.

YIELDS: 2 CUPS

1 cup romaine lettuce

2 tomatoes

12 cup basil leaves

3 cloves garlic, crushed and left to sit for 1 hour

12 cup purified water (if necessary)

  1. Combine romaine, tomatoes, basil, and garlic in a blender and combine thoroughly until all garlic is emulsified.
  2. Add water while blending, if needed, until desired consistency is reached.

3. One Superb Herb

Good for your baby’s nervous system

Although basil has become more and more common as a main ingredient in things like pesto and pasta sauce, this herb still doesn’t get the attention it deserves for the health benefits it offers you and your baby-to-be. Basil provides vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, and folate, all of which work together to strengthen your baby’s immune system and support the growth of your baby’s heart, lungs, kidneys, eyes, and bones.

YIELDS: 3–4 CUPS

1 cup iceberg lettuce

12 cup basil

1 cucumber, peeled

1 clove garlic

12 cup purified water

  1. Combine the iceberg, basil, cucumber, and garlic in a blender with half of the water and blend until combined thoroughly.
  2. If needed, continue adding remaining water while blending until desired texture is achieved.
