Get folic acid fast and get pregnant
You should already be taking a folic acid supplement if you're trying to get pregnant, but you can also up your intake by incorporating folic acid rich foods to your diet.
Canned pulses such as kidney beans, chickpeas, butter beans, baked beans, borlotti beans, flageolet beans and peas are a fantastic source of folic acid.
One of the B-group of vitamins, Folic Acid is a water soluble vitamin, which means that it needs to be incorporated into your diet daily as the body cannot store it.
The great thing about canned pulses is they also provide you with protein and carbohydrates to meet your dietary needs from pre-conception through to pregnancy, birth and beyond. And they are very quick to cook with, making it possible to knock up a tasty meal in minutes.
Just three heaped tablespoons of canned pulses counts as one of the five portions of fruit and vegetables you should be aiming to eat every day.
Whats more, tucking into tasty beans and peas will give your iron levels a boost, particularly when consumed with dark green vegetables or orange juice which aid absorption of iron.
Try these quick, tasty recipes to give your make-a-baby efforts a hearty, healthy boost and help you to get pregnant.
