One of the first things that women realize when they find out they're pregnant is that the list of things they can eat — especially the fun stuff — shrinks. It's not an enormous inconvenience, but it's just enough of a change to make you start fantasizing about the first bite of soft cheese or the big order of sushi you're going to eat immediately after giving birth. That's why it's important to focus on this infinitely more fun list of foods that increase your libido and are safe for pregnancy, because we know you are a glass-half-full kind of person.
While it may not be advised to drink multiple cups of strong coffee or indulge in uncured meat, you can get in the mood with pine nuts, chocolate, figs, and broccoli. And because you're pregnant, you might even want to combine all four of those disparate ingredients! It might seem dire when you're first crossing food groups off the list, but there's more than enough foods on the approved-for-pregnant chicks list to get you in the mood. A few of these might even spur a few new and exciting recipes you could try with your partner! A delish dinner and then head for the sack —what could be better?
