YES! Please use dairy products, especially when pregnant! Just use skim milk. It's so important that you have adequate calcium levels because that baby will take from wherever it can find the calcium, which may leave your bones less dense. I would say, though, that most of the principles followed in clean eating are perfect for a prenatal diet. You have another little person growing in you and they need nutrients just like us. You're doing awesome for you and the lil guy (or girl) inside you!!

I'm 22 weeks pregnant, and endeavoring to eat clean throughout the pregnancy. As the baby gets bigger, I need more nutrients in order to stay healthy and energetic. One of my concerns is that Tosca Reno's books tend to use minimal dairy products, and I think i need them now more than ever. I am aware that I can get calcium and other valuable nutrients from leafy green vegetables, but I'd love to hear some recipes that include dairy - either cow's milk or goat's milk sounds great right now! Thanks!
