I am obessed with staying regular. You can blame my clinical nutrition teacher from way back when for that one. Did you know that if you don't stay regular that your body can start absorb that shit---literally?
Being pregnant can stop us up. It really sucks. So, I started making home made apple bran muffins. I don't have a recipe but I can give a little ingredient advice. I have celiac so I have to be gluten free. I bought some apple fiber---it's one cheap thing you will find a healthfood store. Also dirt cheap, is rice bran. This stuff is loaded with fiber and the nutrients we need while our babies are growing. And of course, oat bran, and flax. Or a little added flour I use sorghum.
You never want to overload your body with fiber because it can have adverse reactions, but if you use small quantities of everything they all work together and you have some guilt free treats. Bran muffins have been getting a bad rap lately, but that's because the recipes people are referring to aren't really that healthy.
