6 (Funny) Foods You Should Totally Be Eating Right Now

We all know that nutrition is really, really, super important during pregnancy. You have to make sure to eat the right things and not eat the wrong things to optimize your unborn baby’s chances for discovering cold fusion or writing a number 1 pop hit or winning the Tour de France. And if you eat the wrong things? Well, you can expect to raise a future ditch-digger or Bachelorette contestant.

I’ve taken the liberty of using my vast knowledge of pregnancy nutrition combined with my assortment of pregnancy cravings to assemble this list of foods you really should be eating while pregnant. Please keep in mind that I am not actually a doctor or nutritionist; I’m a pregnant lady who will soon need to run to the grocery store to replenish her Little Debbie supplies.

  • Fruit 1 of 6
    We all know that fresh fruit is full of those critical vitamins and anti-oxidants that are good for health all the time and especially during pregnancy. Plus it's an awesome source of fiber. So chow down on the fruit ladies! My favorite fruit is Cherry Garcia.

  • Vegetables 2 of 6
    I once read that moms who eat vegetables during pregnancy can have kids who like vegetables when they're bigger. It's important to eat a wide range of brightly colored vegetables which is why I like to dip my french fried potatoes in ketchup.

    Healthy protein is important for growing babies and proper cooking of meat is critical for killing dangerous meat-borne germs. That's why I always order my burgers well done.

    Nuts, fish, avocados all deliver good doses of healthy fats. So be sure to add plenty of onion to your guacamole! Unless the smell makes you barf, that is.

    Grains are good for fiber and…um…other stuff. And flour is totally a grain. And it's in cake!

    Pregnant women need to be sure to keep up their calcium intake to maintain bone strength throughout life. Grilled cheese sandwiches have both butter AND cheese so calcium SCORE!
