One of the most important issues for a pregnant or lactating woman to think about is nutrition. One of the most important nutrients a pregnant woman needs is protein. Even if a pregnant woman doesn't feel like eating meat, there are other alternatives to consume the proper amount of protein. If you use egg whites in a drink every morning, you can increase your protein intake. Egg whites provide protein at 3 grams per egg without including any fat and just 15 calories. They are great way for pregnant women to get the protein they need. Pasteurized eggs must be used to reduce the risk of contracting salmonella. Highly processed foods should be avoided as they contain trans fat. Foods with higher trans fat content may increase your risk of heart disease.
