1-Day Vegetarian Healthy Pregnancy Meal Plan: 2,500 Calories

Eating healthy foods during your pregnancy can take a little bit more thought, as your body needs more nutrients and energy. And if you already follow a certain way of eating, like a plant-based vegetarian diet, there are even a few more nutrients to consider. To make meal planning easier, we created this one-day plan of healthy vegetarian meals for pregnancy to help you get the nutrition you need. We made sure to hit the daily recommended amount for each of the important nutrients during pregnancy—protein, folate, iron, and calcium.

Healthy Ways to Control Pregnancy Cravings and Stay Satisfied

Pickles, lemons and ice cream—these are just a few of the foods commonly associated with pregnancy cravings.

According to research from the 1970s through today, 50 to 90 percent of women experience cravings for specific foods during pregnancy. The most commonly craved foods include sweets like juice, candy, ice cream, chocolate and fruit. Fatty, starchy foods—think pizza, fast food and bread—also rank high.

Eating healthy when you're pregnant takes a little extra thought to make sure you the foods you eat deliver the nutrients you need each day, while avoiding the foods that are on the "unsafe" list (like unpasteurized cheese, and certain fish). Add a food allergy or intolerance on top of that, like Celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity, and it takes even more effort. To make meal planning easier, we created this gluten-free healthy-pregnancy meal plan to help you meet you daily nutrient needs, all while keeping the meals safe, exciting and delicious.
