Food and Beverages BEWARE

 

I found this article on foods and beverages to avoid and thought, really? I tried to list all the foods that are on the “avoid” list in my head and found that I could not recall all of them. Being a Prenatal Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer I thought I had it all down… ha! I’m thinking it has more to do with age now. Anyway, here are the foods and these are suggestions an by any means the end all list of foods to avoid during pregnancy.

Fish

DON”T Eat: raw or under cooked fish or shellfish (oysters and clams), fish with high levels of mercury, including shark, swordfish, king mackerel and tilefish(golden or white snapper), unpasteurized, refrigerated, smoked, or pickled fish unless heated until steaming, do not eat more than 6 ounces a week of canned (yuk, who can eat it any way?) “solid white” or albacore tuna

DO Eat: cooked fish to the temp of 145 degrees or until opaque in the center, eat up to 12 oz. of low mercury fish, such as salmon, shrimp, pollack, or trout

Meat & Poultry

DON”T Eat: Raw or under cooked meat or poultry, refrigerated meat of any kind(ham, roast beef, hot-dogs,  bologna, prosciutto, pate) unless heated until steaming 165 degrees, dry, uncooked sausage, such as salami and pepperoni, unless heated until steaming hot. Be careful of the rotisserie chicken in the grocery stores that are refrigerated – they are the ones from the previous day and they are not always cooled to room temp before placed in the refrig.

Eggs

DON”T Eat: Runny or undercooked eggs, raw cookie dough(darn it :C) or cake batter that contains raw eggs, homemade desserts that contain raw eggs like, eggnog, ice cream, custard, chocolate mousse, hollandaise sauce (missed this item too) bearnaise sauce, mayonnaise, and Caesar salad dressing.

Kinda takes the fun outta eating but it is worth it to be cautious and to be protective of you and the unborn. It’s only for a few months and then you can go back to your normal eating.

I will be a few other foods so stayed tuned…

Any perception can connect us to reality, properly and fully. What we see doesn't have to be pretty, particularly; we can appreciate anything that exists. There is some principle of magic in everything, some living quality. Something living, something real, is taking place in everything. --Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
