Wondering what to eat during a plant-based pregnancy? And how to get all the nutrients you need during a vegetarian pregnancy? Here are all the answers you need, from which vegan prenatal to take to how much DHA you need during pregnancy.
I've been a vegetarian for a more than half my life, and eating a nutritious and largely plant-based diet has become second nature for me.

Wondering what following this type of diet really means and how it differs from vegan or vegetarian eating plans? Curious about delicious, go-to meal options—as well as ingredients dietitians recommend you keep in your pantry and fridge?

Here's to a long, happy, and healthy life.
You know those nights when you're trying to fight the rumbling in your tummy right before bedtime? I've been known to stay up late for a deadline and wander my way into the kitchen in search of a quick and healthy snack. When it comes to nighttime snacks, it's best to reach for something on the small side that also has staying power. The right nighttime snack (and possibly even a nightcap!) can significantly impact how you sleep and consequently how you feel the next morning.
Are you treating your belly to the bacteria it needs to be healthy? I stock my fridge with yogurt and kefir to get my daily fix of probiotics, and I also take a supplement when I need an extra boost of healthy bacteria. Want to know which probiotic products I recommend trying out first?
Do you meal prep? If you're wondering how to make healthy meals faster, look no further than these tips that you can use in your own kitchen!
