Snacks for Pregnant and Nursing Moms

Staying healthy and energized during pregnancy is tough! 
You have a little baby peanut siphoning all your nutrients and will power, all day every day. 

I ran into big problems with keeping my blood sugar up, and would often get fainty, dizzy, and nauseous. I ended up eating small meals and snacks several times a day. Better for energy and better for digestion!

Here are a few examples of my go-to snacks for pregnancy. High in protein, healthy, and delicious!

1. Apples and Almond Butter: Easy and portable!

 2. Smoothies: So many different combinations and easy to maximize protein and other nutrients. Add lots of kale, spinach, swiss chard! I personally love adding a scoop or two of vanilla protein powder and a couple scoops of flax seed. 

 3. Yogurt with granola and fruit: Almost tastes like a desert but so healthy!

 4. Veggies and hummus: Another quick and portable snack!

5. Ezekiel bread with avocado and hardboiled eggs. PROTEIN!

 6. Oatmeal with fruit: I also add a scoop of protein powder, maybe a few walnuts.
