I shared a great any-time-of-day recipe last week on our Instructor blog and talked about how our founder Donna Ryan and I have been swapping stories and recipes for years.

Today’s recipe is another tried and true delicious any-time-of-day recipe from Donna. We have served it during many of Birth Boot Camp Doula trainings. It is fabulous as leftovers-if there are any. 

Nutrition is so important during pregnancy and we want to help you add whole foods in a variety of ways. This meal is a great way to add in orange and red foods. The orange is packed with beta-carotene, B6, vitamin A, fiber. Red full of folate, lycopene, and vitamin C.
