I don’t know about you, but I get very hungry when I’m nursing my babies! Now, I’ll just fix myself a snack when I need one, but in the early postpartum days, even fixing myself a plate of cheese, crackers, and fruit felt like a lot of work!
Today I’m sharing with you some great ideas for healthy snacks that are for anyone, not just breastfeeding moms.
Most of these ideas are super easy, but some require a little prep work. If you’ve just had a baby, ask your husband, mom, or girlfriends to help you prep some easy snacks. Just spending a little time one evening doing some snack prep (making hard boiled eggs, cubing cheese, cutting up fruit, etc.) will go a long way!
watermelon (great for hydration!), peaches, cherries, grapes, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, dried fruit, etc.
cucumbers, carrots, zucchini/squash strips, cherry tomatoes, etc.
pistachios, almonds, peanuts, cashews, nut butters, etc.
Silk Almond Coconut Blend Milk, whole milk, homemade smoothies
Don’t forget to drink lots of water too!!
hard-boiled eggs, deviled eggs
hummus, roasted chickpeas
cheese cubes, Greek yogurt, etc.
trail mixes, granola, Lara bars, homemade whole wheat chocolate chip cookies (hey, a treat every now and then is okay!)
Snack Box Delivery
Subscription snack boxes have been so helpful in making sure I have relatively wholesome snacks to munch on! I’m subscribed to two (you can pick the frequency of delivery that works for you!): NatureBox and Graze. NatureBox includes 5 larger bags of snacks (several portions each), while Graze offers boxes with either 4 or 8 snacks in individual portions. (Good to know: NatureBox offers a free trial. And you can use code “ALIESH64P” to get your 1st and 5th boxes free at Graze… my referral link.) NatureBox allows you to pick out the snacks you want in each box (or be surprised), while Graze chooses for you (but allows you to rate previous boxes so they get to know your tastes as time goes on).
