Alfalfa in pregnancy
Is it safe to eat alfalfa during pregnancy? No
Raw sprouts - like alfalfa or bean sprouts - have been linked to E. coli and salmonella outbreaks, so they definitely belong to the "better-safe-than-sorry" category of foods to avoid during pregnancy. That said, you're not condemned to forgo that crunchy texture until you give birth. Try substituting baby spinach or baby arugula in your sandwich or salads or try adding some thin-cut, French-style green beans.
