Baby Brain Booster Super Smoothie

PROTEIN
Protein is all about building your baby’s body, and your baby does a ton of growing during the 2nd and 3rd trimester. Leafy greens (especially spinach, swiss chard, and mustard greens), Almonds/Almond milk are also a good source.

OMEGA 3S
Our brains are very delicate and need to be maintained properly, but they especially need healthy development in the womb. Consuming omega 3s is one of the best ways to help your baby’s brain, and you should experiment with getting them in another way besides fish.
Chia seeds, Flax seeds, Walnuts

MAGNESIUM
Magnesium is necessary for tissue growth and repair, and both of your bodies’ tissues are working overtime during your term.
Leafy greens (especially spinach and swiss chard), Coconut water

POTASSIUM
Potassium does a variety of things for your body: maintains electrolyte balance, sends nerve impulses, helps muscles to contract, and helps to capitalize on potential energy from fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Plus, who doesn’t need an energy boost when pregnant?
Leafy greens (especially spinach and swiss chard), Beets, Carrots, Banana, Avocado, Coconut water

VITAMIN B6
Many B vitamins are helpful during pregnancy, but vitamin B6 is one of our favorites! The two most important things it does for your baby are creating new red blood cells and antibodies, and aiding in healthy brain development. Leafy greens (especially spinach and turnip greens), banana, avocado, pineapple, cantaloupe
