For many , many years one of my very best friends Nicolette and I have been exchanging health information as well as YUMMY and clean food recipes . Here is one she came up with that I LOVE and have been eating ever since she emailed this to me a year ago . This is one of the recipes in The Rooted For Life cook book that my Cook book partner Jenna and I are working on. I love this recipe for pregnancy as it’s super high in omega 3 fatty acids . I don’t think you can eat enough of good fats when you are pregnant . Did you know 70 percent of the good fats you eat when pregnant go right to your baby’s growing and developing brain ? Yup .. this recipe will literally feed both you and your baby’s brain .
