Eating for two... not five

You may be eating for two, but ease up on the potato chips, sister. New research shows that eating too much fat when pregnant may lead to both a fatty liver in the baby, and a change in the small molecules that govern metabolism in your own body. So if you really have a salt and fat craving, try a healthier snack like a handful of roasted almonds (barring nut allergies, of course). You'll get a dose of monounsaturated fat (the "good" fat), protein, fiber, vitamin E, and fantastic flavor in one nutritious package.
