Foods To Reduce Morning Sickness

Foods To Reduce Morning Sickness

Where my nauseous, first-trimester mamas at?! 🀰🀒 After sharing a roundup of a typical day of eats during my first trimester, many of you wrote me and said you were similarly suffering with that nasty β€œmorning” (but let’s be honest, it’s really 24/7) sickness. So today I wanted to share a few of my favorite foods to quell the nausea and get in key nutrients for pregnancy.

In addition, here are a few overall tips for eating to reduce nausea:
1️⃣ Choose cold vs. hot foods ❄️
2️⃣ Choose bland foods that don’t have a strong odor πŸ‘ƒ
3️⃣ Eat small meals, frequently 🍽 Both being too hungry and too full contributes to nausea.
4️⃣ Try nausea-reducing ingredients like ginger or peppermint which can be enjoyed in dishes or as tea 🍡 Keep in mind though that they can also increase acid-reflux if you’re suffering from that too.
5️⃣ Take your prenatal at night before bed if you find it makes you nauseous – much easier you sleep through nausea than feel it all day long! πŸ’Š
6️⃣ Don’t stress too much about not eating the β€œright” foods 🌿 There will be plenty of time for broccoli in the 2nd and 3rd trimester πŸ˜‰ Nutrient needs aren’t increased much in the first trimester and your prenatal will cover most of them. As long as you’re not losing significant amounts of weight, you’re good mama πŸ‘

Hope these tips help if you’re struggling ❀️ The good news is that nausea during pregnancy is totally normal (about 70% of women experience it) and for most women it goes away sometime between 12-16 weeks. For me it subsided around week 15. For more prenatal nutrition guidance, check outΒ @plantbasedjuniors Predominantly Plant-Based Pregnancy Guide .
