Ginger Tea Recipe For Nausea & Wellness + Getting The Right Nutrition During Pregnancy

As a Registered Nurse who worked in Labor & Delivery and a mom to four beautiful babies, I know a thing or two about pregnancy. One thing I really struggled with when I was pregnant was getting the right nutrition for me and baby. The first trimester always consisted of a diet of dry cereal and water. I couldn’t eat anything else without feeling nauseas so cereal dinners were on the menu for a good 3 months. Despite how my body felt, I knew I needed to be sure I was getting the right nutrients. I have a couple of tricks that worked for me that I hope will help you get the right nutrition during pregnancy and help fight off that nausea. My ginger tea recipe was great for sipping on and helped alleviate the nausea when it hit.

How to make sure you are getting the right nutrients during pregnancy. Easy way to get recommended dose of calcium that is often missing in prenatal vitamins.

Alleviating the morning sickness that comes with pregnancy is just one important step in ensuring that your body gets the required nutrients it needs to maintain a healthy balance. If you are finding it difficult to get your nutrition through food then it is especially important to make sure you are getting it through dietary supplements. Women need 1000 mg of daily calcium to meet recommended daily requirements. Many prenatal vitamins don’t meet this requirement and leaves a gap in your nutritional needs. 

Rather than swallow two big horse pills of calcium every day (yuck!) when pregnant I preferred to get my calcium and vitamin D from Viactiv Calcium ChewViactiv Calcium Soft Chews are the #1 doctor-recommended calcium supplement chew and one Viactiv Calcium Soft Chew (500 mg of calcium and 500 IU of Vitamin D) taken twice daily provides 100% of the daily value of calcium for most women plus vitamins D and K.

Plus they come individually wrapped so you can toss them in your purse and know you always have them when you are on the go. They taste great too! I like both the caramel and milk chocolate flavors. If I had to pick one I think I’d pick the caramel flavor, but they both taste fantastic. WAY better than swallowing big calcium pills! It feels like you’re eating a treat but it’s delivering your daily dietary needs for you and baby! Did you know that if your body is not getting enough dietary calcium it begins to take it from your bones? Even when you are not pregnant this happens which decreases bone mineral density which can eventually lead to osteopenia and osteoporosis.

The majority of Americans do not receive the amount of calcium needed daily based on diet alone – around 68% of women are calcium deficient. Calcium isn’t manufactured in the body, so it must be introduced by outside sources (diet, supplements).  This is the yummiest way I’ve found to do it! Don’t forget to make sure you are also getting plenty of folic acid, iodine, and vitamin D.

Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews are available in milk chocolate and caramel flavors at major retailers including CVS, Rite Aid, Target, and Walmart, as well as supermarkets nationwide. Print this coupon to save $2 on your next in-store purchase of Viactiv.

    I'm new with making tea at home, but love the idea! Plus, the ingredients to this tea seem so delicious. When you say add tea bags and allow them to steep were you implying any type of tea bags? Camomile? Mint? Rooibos? I wasn't sure. Thanks for your help!
