"What can I do to keep my baby safe?", is the first question almost every expectant mom asks herself.
Driven by a new purpose in life, many women forego chemical treatments to their hair like relaxers or perms. Some even decide to do away with bad habits like smoking and drinking. There are still others who up the ante by adopting a healthy exercise program.
New Mommies want to do everything they can to aid in a safe and successful delivery, however, there are so many uncontrollable variables that are out of their hands. Fortunately, one sure fire way to improve the health of mom and baby has to be improving nutrition. Foregoing meat products, decreasing fast food and going organic are all ways to start on the path to better nutrition.
In the swarm of fads and pop culture it can be confusing, even daunting, to know where to begin the process. The smart way to start without overwhelming one's self is to start slowly. This is important to preserve momentum. It is hard to start something new, but it is very disappointing to begin and then fail due to overzealous goals.

NOTE: The five basic ingredients listed for the tofu eggs make this an excellent dish, but if you want to kick it up a notch, add a half teaspoon of Mckays Chicken Style Broth and Seasoning, a few shakes of Texas Pete Hot Sauce and a pinch of Lawry's Seasoning Salt. Also note that soy products have unfortunately been infiltrated by industries' genetic modifications. Therefore, be sure to look for the "non-GMO" marking that will ensure you are getting a good source of soy. Finally, go organic whenever possible to avoid the presence of unwanted pesticides and other chemicals.
