Tummies of mom-to-be’s work differently. Digestion slows down to allow proper absorption of nutrients from food intake. The slowing down of digestion can cause constipation.
The discomfort of waiting for ‘nature’s call’ is indeed on of the moments I dislike. There are times that I cry to Pipi cause I can’t unload. My OB have advised me to drink plenty of water, eat more veggies and fruits that are high in fiber. I religiously followed that. I consume a minimum of 2 liters of water each day. More fluids is required to beat the heat of the summer days.
Today, I am sharing a new favorite of mine: yogurt and fresh fruit salad.
This is from with chilled 125 g Nestle Creamy Yogurt, fresh mangoes and bananas ( lakatan), and condensed milk about 2 tbsp of it is enough. First, empty out the yogurt into a bowl. Expect it to be sour since this is the unsweetened kind. Condensed milk or honey are options for sweetener. Mix your chosen sweetener ang yoghurt. Add in the ripe mangoes and sliced bananas. Enjoy!
Yogurt is a good source of calcium. Baby Center has labelled it as on of pregnant woman’s superfood. The live microorganisms – the good ones that is, aids in healthy digestion.
Have a happy buntis dessert!
