By Frances Largeman-Roth, RDI'm nine months pregnant, and I'm quickly losing the real estate for my internal organs, including my stomach. That means I'm eating a lot of little thingsâ€”often. Not only am I trying to pack in essential nutrients as my little girl packs on the pounds, but I'm also trying to counteract some pregnancy-related health issues.I've been vigilant about getting plenty of calcium and potassium, because it seems to help stave off the nightly leg cramps I've been getting. I'm also saddled with heartburn, which I'd never experienced until a few weeks ago. Initially I thought I could avoid it off by skipping tomato-based sauces and spicy food, but it turns out that even something as harmless as a fruit smoothie can bring on the burn.Heartburn is the bane of most women i
Let’s face it: the lunchtime salad routine can get old. But if you’re trying to eat healthily, what are your other options?

Because of my work as Health's Food Director,people will sometimes ask if I either cook elaborate, multi-course meals every night, or if I never cook at home since it’s part of my job. The reality is actually neither of these—I’m a busy working mom, and I cook often for my family (my husband is an excellent cook and does a lot of it as well), but the meals we make are usually pretty quick and simple. Here's what I eat in a typical day.BreakfastEvery morning, the first thing I do is down a big glass of water and take my vitamins.Water just helps get me going. I drink a lot of water all day (I don’t count glasses or ounces, but I’m always sipping), and that glass first thing is a good jump-start.
