Healthy Eating for Pregnancy
by Amanda Grant
This is delicious served in big bowls with chunks of fresh bread for mopping up the juices. If you do not have time to make your own stock, use the best vegetable bouillon powder you can buy. You could always roast a large chicken for supper one night and keep some of the meat to make this stew the next day.
Chicken is a very good source of protein, minerals, and essential B vitamins, all of which assist with growth and development. Chickpeas are a very good source of protein and soluble fiber, giving the body energy. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of betacarotene, which strengthens the immune system.
