If you’re worried that your new pregnancy means you’ll be missing out on super satisfying and delicious meals, don’t even think about it! The tiny human in your stomach is more of a reason than ever to enjoy your favorite healthy pregnancy meals and know that they are contributing towards growing the healthiest baby possible. While you might not need double the calories when eating for two, there’s no reason to skimp on the flavor!
We found the best of the best flavorful, totally yummy, and healthy pregnancy meals for you to indulge in the whole nine months. These 30 meals (10 for each trimester) are full of power foods that will benefit you and your little bun in the oven!
The first trimester may cause a lack of appetite, nausea, and a decrease in energy. For this trimester, we picked meals that pack in the nutrients, have subtle and mild flavors, and are simple to prepare.
If you’ve survived the morning sickness, welcome back to the land of the living! ;) The second trimester should bring with it your energy, appetite, and productivity. Woohoo! For this trimester, we picked healthy pregnancy meals that might require some more prep (before the third trimester hits and you feel like doing ~nothing~ in the kitchen) and meals with more flavors you may be craving!
Hooray! Your little muffin is almost done baking in that tummy of yours. These meals are similar to the ones we picked for the first trimester, in the fact that they don’t require a ton of preparation. They do have a whole lot more flavor though, and we even threw some higher calorie meals in there to make sure you’re meeting your 450 calorie/day increase.
