After going through two pregnancies, I know how uncomfortable it can be at times. Sleepless nights, itchy skin, swollen feet, and digestion issues are just some of the discomforts many experience during pregnancy. While both of my pregnancies were pretty much by the book, it’s still a wild time growing a human for 40 weeks. And since I know what a ride it is, I always want to support my mom friends when they are pregnant because I’ve been there, and any support you can give to an expecting mom is huge.
Pregnancy typically includes a wide variety of aches and pains you’ve never felt before, plus there’s a huge mental load many don’t realize moms-to-be take on. Nutrition can be particularly overwhelming, which is why Agni’s Pregnancy Box is my go-to gift for expecting moms.
Agni is a women-owned, women-run company that is all about healing foods. Agni features a variety of boxes full of cookies, teas, and seasonings that support women’s health at whatever stage of life they are in. They just released The Pregnancy Box, and it’s the perfect gift for your expecting friends (or for yourself!). The box was created specifically as a natural and safe way to support all trimesters of pregnancy with the best healing foods (that are also delicious!).
If you have ever felt confused by what you should be eating during pregnancy, you’re not alone. “Nutrition anytime can feel overwhelming, and the responsibility of eating for a new life can add to this feeling,” said Tammy Chang, a nutrition coach on Agni’s Medical Advisory Board. “A good place to start is to think about where in your diet you can make some simple swaps that add nutrients and improve digestibility.” And that’s where Agni comes in. The Pregnancy Box includes 17 ingredients that support pregnancy, like folate, iron, Omega-3, magnesium, and potassium, which support baby’s growth and development while also supporting mom.
Healing foods are so incredibly powerful, but it can be hard to know what is best for your body, especially during pregnancy. As someone who Googled literally everything before I ate it (just to be sure it was pregnancy-safe!), I would have loved to have a box like this to turn to. The Pregnancy Box was created by Agni’s Medical Advisory Board and top chefs, so you know that it has just the right ingredients to support a healthy pregnancy.
- Ginger Molasses Cookies: with folate, iron, and calcium (can help ease nausea)
- Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies: with protein and fiber (aids in digestion)
- Sesame Nori Seasoning: with vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium (for immune health and hormone balance)
- Cinnamon Maca Seasoning: with iron, zinc, and Omega-3 (for gut health and hormone balance)
- Ginger Cardamom Team: with iron, calcium, potassium, and protein (can help ease nausea)
I had the opportunity to sample Agni’s Pregnancy Box, and I can tell you firsthand: This is an incredible gift for yourself or for a friend. There are a handful of items I love to give to expecting moms because I know they helped me during pregnancy, and this box is absolutely being added to the list. The teas and cookies are delicious. Plus, you just feel good eating them because they use 100% whole, natural ingredients sourced from the highest quality farmers, then their team of top chefs turns them into delicious treats.
I think my favorite items in the box are the Sesame Nori Seasoning and the Cinnamon Maca Seasoning. I added the Sesame Nori seasoning to avocado toast and mixed the Cinnamon Maca Seasoning to my morning yogurt. They were so delicious and it felt like an extra special treat—all while being healing and supportive of your health.
If you’re not pregnant and still interested in exploring healing foods, Agni has a huge variety of other boxes to choose from so you can try one no matter what stage of life you’re in. Here are some of their other products:
- The Fertility Box (foods to support fertility)
- The Mama Box (foods to support the postpartum journey)
- The Women’s Health Box (foods to support all stages)
- Standalone products to try, like cookies, teas, and seasonings.
While pregnant, parents are probably gifted tons of baby clothes and toys for their babe-to-be, but don’t forget to shower the mom with some love and support as well. Agni’s Pregnancy Box is an extra thoughtful gift you can send to an expecting mom to let her know you’re thinking of her and there to support her during this exciting time.
