Craving Naked....the Drink that Is

I have been taking prenatal vitamins since coming off the birth control pills to help get my body ready to conceive, but today, now that I know I am preggers, I bought a 30 supply of DHA Prenatal Supplements which supports fetal brain and eye development. I have been making a very conscious effort to give this baby the best start possible. I have been drinking orange juice every morning like it’s going out of style and trying my very best to eat well. Fortunately for Baby, my early pregnancy cravings haven’t been too unhealthy.

So far my only REAL craving is actually really good for me- it’s those Superfood smoothies by Odwalla, Naked Juice, and other similar brands. They all have about the same ingredients (apple, mango, banana, kiwi, pineapple, Spirulina, Chlorella, Broccoli, Spinach, Blue Green Algae, odorless Garlic, Barley Grass, Wheat Grass, Ginger, and Parsley) and are all this nasty pea soup green color and have no sugar added. I can’t get enough of them! Yum!

I also find myself eating more green olives than usual. My Saturday night snack was green olives and feta cheese. In a bowl. Nothing else. With a garlic dill pickle on the side. Thank goodness olives are packed with healthy fats!

(We won’t mention that last night I polished off a bag of fat free salad croutons as my dinner. Nothing else sounded that good at the time! LOL!)
