Have you found yourself craving Salty Fries during your pregnancy?
Why the craving for salty foods?
During pregnancy, your body produces 50 — yes FIFTY! — percent more blood.
This increase in blood volume can also increase your dietary need for sodium.
Healthy swap: Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries. Not only are these baked fries DELISH, they pack way more nutrients than your average greasy fries, including vitamins A, C, and B6 — all essential for you and your baby! Sprinkle on some pink Himalayan salt to satisfy those salty cravings.
Does this mean you can’t ever have Fries during pregnancy? Of course not. This is simply to illustrate an option to satisfy a craving that can be slightly more nutritionally beneficial to you and your baby. 🙂
Thanks to @juna.moms on Instagram for the great visual – I really want some hot fries now! 😀
