As a new mom or mom to be, we would always get tempted to buy more and more stuff for our babies. And with online shopping, we are bound to spend a lot of money on those cute stuff.

I never thought I would be drafting this blog post as I personally don’t follow strict diets. I did not have any diet restriction from day 1. I ate what I liked and I used to eat out occasionally as well. I am not allergic to any foods and I did not have any medical complaints throughout my pregnancy. Hence I highly suggest you to follow your doctor’s diet if you have been given one.
Early morning: 5 almonds + 2 walnuts with a cup of milk
Breakfast : any homemade breakfast like idly, dosa, upma, kichdi with a small cup of tea.
Mid-morning : a cup of drumstick leaves soup (helps in increasing hemoglobin levels) and a fruit.
Lunch: Homemade lunch like rice, sambar or any vegetable curry with any veggie stir fry with a cup of masala chaas.
Eg: rice, sambar and beetroot stir fry. Chaas is buttermilk seasoned with asafoetida, cumin powder, curry leaves and ginger. On days when I prepare non-veg meal, I usually have salad or boiled veggies seasoned with salt and pepper
Evening snack : boiled channa/goundnut/cow peas/green peas flavored with some onions, tomatoes, salt, pepper and lemon juice + 1 fruit.
Dinner : Homemade which is usually upma, roti & sabji or porridge.
I also have warm jeera water every night to avoid gassy tummy.
Always listen to your doctor and alter food based on doctor’s recommendation.
Carry some homemade/ store bought snacks whenever you go out to avoid being hungry for a long time.
Eat every 2-3 hours and do not starve. If you starve, you are also making your child starve.
Drink lots of water and keep yourself hydrated. If you suffer from morning sickness, drink plenty of juices and water.
Before following any home remedies for any ailments, consult your gynaec.
While eating out, choose to eat veggies and avoid maida or any processed food/junk.
Snack on healthy nuts, puffed rice, fruits and trail mixes. Avoid packaged junk.
Fruits can be flavored with salt and pepper and lemon juice to make it tastier and to avoid binge eating.

CANVASCHAMP.COM : PRODUCT REVIEW AND SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
We all take photographs on so many devices but we don’t cherish them forever because we don’t have a physical copy of the photographs. All our photographs are in mobile phones and SD cards, whereas earlier we used to take copies of photos for every event! Do we ever realize that the happiness while we look at old photographs is somehow lost these days due to digital formats of photos? Memories bring so much happiness in our lives and I wanted to give life to one such memory. I wanted to print out our first anniversary picture and while I was looking for options, Canvas Champ contacted me and I readily agreed after having a look at their website.
