Bulgur with marinated heirloom tomatoes

Prep: 10 Min. Cook: 35 Min. Serves 8

Bulgur is made from steamed, dried and crushed wheat kernels, so it's already precooked and only requires soaking to finish it off. A whole grain, bulgur is rich in fiber to help prevent constipation, a common pregnancy side effect. Tomatoes are at their peak of flavor in the summer and contain vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps support your immune system. Top with a little cheese if desired, but make sure it's pasteurized. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

·         4 cups water

·         2 cups bulgur

·         ½ cup extra virgin olive oil

·         1 teaspoon grated lemon zest Y4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)

·         1 teaspoon kosher salt

·         ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

·         3 garlic cloves, minced

·         1 pound mixed heirloom tomatoes cut into 1/2-inch wedges or pieces

·         ½ cup thinly sliced basil

·         ¼ cup crumbled pasteurized goat cheese, about 1 ounce

Tofu-veggie kebabs

Prep: 50 Min. For Marinating Cook: 8 Min. Serves 8

Tofu is a great low-fat source of protein and contains calcium, iron and magnesium. Protein helps develop your baby's tissues, calcium helps build her bones and teeth, and iron, a hard-to-get nutrient, helps lower your risk for preterm delivery. Fresh squash is a good source of vitamin A, which aids in the development of the heart, lungs, kidneys, eyes and central nervous system. Look for organic, super-firm or extra-firm tofu, which stand up well on the grill. Serve skewers on top of grilled pita bread.

·         1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

·         ¼ cup fresh lemon juice

·         2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano

·         1 teaspoon kosher salt

·         ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

·         1 9-ounce yellow squash, cut into 1-inch pieces

·         32 cherry tomatoes

·         Cooking spray
