A nutritious diet that balances your doshas and induces Pranic energy (life force) is always important, but during your pregnancy, it is more essential than ever to eat in a way that nourishes you and your baby.
A Sattvic Diet of freshly prepared and nutritious food should be adopted by both parents when they start trying to conceive. Include fresh fruits and vegetables
Ojas (immunity) building foods are important for the mother and baby. Add milk and ghee in your diet as they naturally increase ojas in the body. Flavour your milk with cardamom and turmeric as they promote digestion and are also tridoshic i.e. they balance all three doshas.
Rasas are the 6 Ayurvedic tastes (sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent). While they should all be eaten, greater importance should be given to the sweet, sour and salty tastes as they balance the vata. Vata is the most important dosha during pregnancy as apana vata, which governs the downward flow of energy in the body, is essential for a healthy pregnancy.
Avoid foods that cause gas, like hot spicy foods and uncooked leafy greens. It’s also important to avoid eating anything that has chemical additives and preservatives.
