Breakfast: a time to feast on chocolate chip pancakes, strawberry crêpes, waffles, bacon, and buttery toast. But these might not be *healthiest* options when you’re pregnant. At the same time, your busy mornings likely mean that you don’t have time to sit down and eat a proper meal. Instead of skipping this much-needed meal or stopping for a donut on your way to work, try whipping up one of these quick and nutritious breakfast smoothies instead.
