Gowri’s favourite things

Almond Milk
Blue Diamond almond milk and vanilla almond milk is delicious and a great alternative to dairy. It costs just £1.59 per carton and contains only 27 calories per 200 ml. You can buy it from supermarkets like Tesco, Sainsburys and Waitrose, but I suggest you go for home delivery as it flies off the shelves like hot cakes!

I recommend you eat three of the following each day:

Three Fruits
Please choose three from the following options:

  • 1 ripe pear
  • 1 apple
  • 1 peach
  • 1 apricot
  • 1 small bowl of blueberries
  • 2 slices of ripe pineapple

Please avoid grapes, mangoes and dried fruits as they have too much concentrated fruit sugar. This can put an enormous strain on your liver which has to metabolise them, and during pregnancy your liver has lots to do already detoxing excessive pregnancy hormones.

Lots of Probiotics!
I recommend taking one capsule of probiotics (10 billion units of Lactobacillus Acidophilus +/- similar strains) ten minutes before breakfast with half a glass of water at room temperature. My favourites are Lamberts probiotics because you don’t need to keep them in the fridge so you can take them with you on holiday.
