Second Trimester recipes
With the onset of second trimester, you are a step ahead in your Pregnancy. This trimester is a period of rapid growth and development of the fetus.
You will stop feel nauseated and the morning sickness will soon disappear. This is also the time when you crave to eat a variety of dishes, with a new taste each time. But remember to not overdo the spice or sugar dosage. So explore recipes like Jowar Methi Roti, Moong Dal Dosa etc. Your appetite will increase and you will feel the urge to eat small meals more often. To make those time pretty we have designed a few recipe like Orange and Mint Juice, Poha Cutlet, Mooli Muthias and so on.
The energy and protein requirement should be made up to reach the desired weight of this trimester. Some women tend to lose weight in first trimester. Then they need to catch up on that weight gain too. So focus on energy dense recipe like Sprout and Fruit Bhel, Strawberry Milkshake, Stuffed bajra Roti, Kulith Salad etc.
Leg cramps also occur to some women in this part of gestation. Focus of dairy products, sprouts and greens to provide your body with loads of calcium. Broccoli, Carrot and Paneer Subzi, Sprouts Pulao etc.
Lastly, remember Iodine is also a nutrient that’s very important for baby’s growth. So ensure you use a good quality brand of iodised salt in your daily cooking.
