Good eats

Food is what makes life worth living especially when pregnant. Putting good food in gets good things out, including healthy babies. I’m a foodie and take care to what I cook, buy and feed myself and my family. I’ve been at one time or another vegetarian, pescetarian (eats only seafood and veggies no animal meat), and nothing but hungry. I have found that trying to become pregnant that I craved meat and have since introduced animal protein back into my diet. I still prefer and feel the best eating pescetarian. Living in Southern California we are spooled with farm to table, organic, cold pressed juice, chia, and whatever healthy food craze that comes next. In my opinion all health foods trend out of California and I enjoy testing them all.  Food plays a huge role in health and I hope you enjoy the recipes that are some of my kitchen favorites when pregnant and not. Bon appetite.
