Lately in my pregnancy, I’ve been feeling hungry almost ALL the time! I’m trying to drink more water and cut back on sugary foods (which just leave me hungrier). Eating healthy snacks between meals can keep your blood sugar levels where they need to be and prevent you from overeating at meals.
I’ve compiled a list of good, healthy snacks as a reminder to myself and to share with you all as well. Feel free to comment with some of your favorite snacks… for during pregnancy or otherwise!
Weight Watcher’s yogurt cup (I usually eat half)
non-fat vanilla yogurt
other fruit (clementine, apple, strawberries, etc.)
raisins or craisins (but watch, as these can be high in sugar)
cheese and crackers (I like Wheat Thins Toasted Chips)
small amount of peanuts or a handful of almonds
wheat bread with local honey
half of a pb&j sandwich
salsa with veggies or a small amount of tortilla chips
fresh veggies with a light dressing
small tossed salad
smoothie made with frozen fruit
So what healthy foods do you like to munch on?
