Portion Control

We often see the words “portion control” pop up in the news, in magazines, and from our doctors.  Portion control has become quite popular as restaurants continue to deliver over sized meals and fast food establishments continue to “super-size” servings.  I mean for a long time our society has thought more is better, right?  Well not the case at all.  Your goal should always be to super-size the amount of nutrient dense foods you are consuming, not the portion size.  Our bodies need more nutrients and less fluffed food.  When choosing your next meal, think quality of food, not quantity.  Bon Appetite!

Healthy Mom Healthy Baby

Eating for two does not mean eating twice as much rather eating more nutrient dense foods to benefit both mom & baby. What a mom eats during her pregnancy effects the baby’s preferences when beginning solid foods themselves. I ate a lot of yogurt, cheese, avocado, and strawberries throughout my pregnancy and these foods now happen to be my daughter’s favorite foods.
