Add more fiber to your pregnancy diet with this creamy delight!
Poor digestion is one of the banes of pregnancy. One way to conquer it is by staying regular, which means getting enough fiber is especially important. With almost 5 grams of fiber per quarter cup, almonds are a great food to include in your diet. Pair that with these tasty nuts’ other amazing nutrients — like vitamin E for heart health, and magnesium, copper, and phosphorous to maintain bone health — and you’ll want to include almonds in your daily routine.
