Pickles are a natural source of C, E, B vitamins and minerals (magnesium, potassium, zinc), thanks to which they strengthen your immunity. Another advantage of pickles is that they contain a lot of fiber. Specialists say that pregnant women should eat about 30 g fiber per day. Fiber enables regular bowel movements and prevents constipation (which happens often during pregnancy). Not everyone knows that pickled vegetables are less caloric and easier to digest than their fresh counterparts.
