4 Not-So-Guilty Pleasures From Mommi

When Erin Schurtz became pregnant, like every mom, she scoured for pregnancy-safe nutrition products to ensure the health of herself and baby. She found products that provided the recommended amounts of folic acid, iron, and calcium, but couldn’t find any that provided an extra 15 grams of protein. This was because most protein powders and power bars were not safe for pregnant or nursing women. And thus, Mommi 3-in-1 (prenatal protein shake) was born.

Fast forward to baby # 2, Erin and the Mommi team are still helping women discover the ways protein supports a women at all phases of pregnancy. Here are Mommi’s 4 favorite nutrient-rich and delicious recipes for growing a healthy belly.
