Pregnant Girl Diet: Healthy Snacks Ideas for Pregnancy

October 13, 2015

Wow! I cannot believe I am already 8 weeks along already.

It has been almost one month since we found out that we were expecting baby #2 and it seems as quickly as we found out, the cravings and hunger pangs began!

I have been sticking to my clean eating about 80% of the time. I DO allow myself cheat meals-usually two per week and they are almost always chips & queso or sushi!

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite snacks during pregnancy. There is not a whole lot of info out there on pregnancy diet and what’s good to eat during pregnancy so I figured it would be a great idea to let you know!

I typically eat something every 1-2 hours. Why? If I don’t, I get nauseated slightly. I know right-the opposite of most ladies who instead get sick because they ate. So I am always looking for high protein, lower calorie snacks to fuel up on-especially after my workout.

Here are my yummy snacks that I have eaten this past week:

Greek yogurt with granola and honey. (I usually love this before bedtime)

Fresh fruit! Kiwi, stawberries, and pineapples are in this mix.

Dried green beans. I have been loving dried fruits and veggies-so crispy and chewy! Makes me think I am eating chips. I like to dip these in hummus.

Cottage cheese with fruit puree. This is mango fruit.

MRM Natural Strawberry Whey. One of the few whey protein powders that are safe during pregnancy. Use code SIA at checkout for 40% off all MRM supplements!

Tune and Triscuits. I love tuna! However, during pregnancy, you should limit your tuna intake to 12 oz. per week-no more.

Apples and peanut butter. My classic post workout snack.

Frozen grapes. This is hands down my favorite snack for when I am craving ice cream!

I hope you all enjoyed some of my snack ideas! I am planning on making a post soon with actual meal ideas for what I eat throughout the day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). I hope you will all stay tuned for part two!
