The stuffed acorn squash is rich in nutrients that are great for pregnant ladies, and it is simple enough to make too. Cut a medium-sized acorn into half, spray it with cooking spray after removing the seeds, and then bake for 45 minutes or until tender at 375°.

Take the squash out and stuff in the mixture; top it with parmesan cheese and you’re good to go.

Nachos

We know, you’re probably thinking how this junkiest of all junk food could in any way be a healthy snack for you. We tweaked it a bit by using the low-fat versions of cheese and yogurt. Take an ounce of corn chips and layer them with kidney beans, chopped olives and shredded low-fat cheese. Bake or toast in an oven until the cheese melts. Top it with finely cut lettuce, chopped tomatoes, salsa, and some no-fat Greek yogurt.

Parmesan Chicken Tenders with Marinara Dipping Sauce

Pregnant women are required to consume a minimum 60g of protein daily on average. This parmesan chicken recipe is loaded with protein. Preheat your oven to 475°. Take about 5 ounces of chicken tenders; dip them in 2 egg whites, then crumb them in whole wheat bread meshed with parmesan cheese, oregano, dry mustard and some garlic powder. Bake them, sprayed with cooking spray until chicken is cooked (normally 15 minutes). Serve with sweet potato fries and steamed broccoli sprinkled with olive oil and a bit of lemon juice.
