Pickles and ice cream? Not for this mom-to-be! Pregnancy cravings can be hard to resist, but where there's a will, there's a way -- and Kim Kardashian definitely has the will. In fact, now that she's expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West in July, she's more focused than ever on choosing good, nutritious foods for herself and her baby.
"Keeping a healthy lifestyle has always been important to me," the 32-year-old reality star says of her pregnancy diet in a new "mommy blog" post on her website. "And now it's even more important because I am looking out for someone else's well being other than just my own."
"I've been researching recipes and healthy eating tricks to make sure that I get the right nutrition now that I'm eating for two!" she continues. "For me it's about maintaining a well-balanced eating and fitness plan."
To that end, the Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star is seeking help from outside sources. "My friend Harley Pasternak sent me this book and I am so excited to read it!" she says, referring to the celeb trainer's Body Reset Diet tome. "[It] will give you the tools you need to restart the way you are eating and boost your metabolism. I love his recipes and I know you guys will too!" (Pasternak has worked with several other Hollywood moms including Jessica Simpson, Megan Fox, and Hilary Duff.)
Taking care of herself and her baby is a priority for the mom-to-be, especially following last week's minor pregnancy scare. "She's been working a lot, and with a divorce and the move and everything else she has going on, she just needs to take a little rest," a source told Us Weekly.
Added Kardashian herself on Twitter: "Thanks for all the well wishes, I'm doing fine! Just resting...have a good weekend. Love you guys!"
