Nurturing your body at this point in life goes far beyond a healthy pregnancy.
It aids in having a smooth, manageable delivery

Speeds healing and builds immune response
Sets you up for a healthy life into motherhood and beyond
Eating Plant-based is for everyone, especially pregnant & nursing Mamas.
Here's why -
1. A plant-based diet can help reduce the risk of pregnancy related nutritional complications including gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia, both of which are related to how your body metabolizes food.
2. Plant-based foods contain phytochemicals not found in any other source (like meat or dairy). These phytochemicals help balance hormones, metabolize fat, and regulate nutrient absorption.
3. Pregnant mamas need the immune boost that plant-based foods like kale, spinach, garlic and onions provide. When you're pregnant your immune response drops and certain foods have a protective effect.
4. Eating a diet rich in plant fiber can help you reach a healthy weight. Preventing unnecessary weight gain or loss during pregnancy ensures a healthier delivery and recovery.

So, how does Plant-based Pregnancy work?
Every day you'll find an easy to prepare meal or breakfast smoothie to start your day.
You'll also have 6 healthy lunches that you can choose from + 6 healthy dinner salads each alternating week.
If your goal is to lose weight or gain minimal weight (because of doctor's orders), you can do the weekly juice fast.
Alternatively, you can do the juice fasting before you become pregnant to cleanse your body, tone your uterus and improve your health.
