Pregnancy Nachos Loaded with Fiber, Calcium, Protein and Folate

Pregnancy Nachos

You probably didn’t think it was possible that someone would recommend nachos as a healthy food while you are pregnant. It sounds just about as likely as your midwife recommending you visit the McDonald’s drive-thru. But, believe it or not, these nachos are actually healthy. Loaded with fiber, calcium, protein and folate, here’s how to feel like you’re cheating without actually cheating.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of corn chips
  • 1/3 cup of kidney beans
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped olives
  • 1/4 cup of shredded reduced-fat cheese
  • 1/2 cup of shredded lettuce of your choice
  • 3/4 cup of chopped tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup of fresh salsa
  • 1/2 cup of non-fat Greek yogurt

Directions:

  1. Layer corn chips with kidney beans, olives and shredded cheese on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in oven or toaster oven for approximately 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  3. Top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and Greek yogurt.
  4. Enjoy
