This hearty lentil based soup has warm flavours making it very appealing throughout your pregnancy. The potatoes and beans add extra carbohydrates while the vegetables provide the required vitamins, minerals and fibre. It is a great one dish meal when you are lactating too. Simply assemble everything in a pot and let it simmer away while you attend to your little one.
