Almonds contain iron, which supports fetal heart development and immunity. Iron also supports the healthy transport of oxygen through your body. Almonds are also full of healthy fats, fiber, and micronutrients like magnesium, riboflavin, folate, and more.
That being said, almond butter is relatively high calorie and should be enjoyed in moderation. Spread it on toast or an apple, or add it to yogurt or overnight oats.

Spinach provides folate, antioxidants, Vitamin C, beta-carotene, fiber, iron, and Vitamin K1 for blood clotting, collagen production, bone health, gut health, and more.
Use as the base of salads, in omelets, or smoothies. If you’re nervous about making it through an entire box of spinach before it goes wrong, don’t be afraid to throw it in the freezer for future smoothie and stir-fry use.
