Re: Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

Good ideas everyone!
You know, I'm sitting here wondering why I'm so hungry, and I just realized, I'm actually feeding 3 because dd is still nursing!
I think I deserve to be hungry every 2 hours.

Re: Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

Combinations of carbs and protein and good fat help you stay satisfied longer... I would eat cheese and crackers or pb and crackers. I craved roasted cashews and things like that. If you want french fries, baking them is good plus they're less greasy so less chance for residual heart burn. Of course... I also bought a pint of Ben and Jerry's every 2-3 weeks (I would eat over the span of the 2-3 weeks son in reality it wasn't really that bad... I knew some women in my DDC who ate pints in one sitting).

Sounds like you've got a bunch of good advice. I'd like to add that my midwife highly recommended snacking on Almonds. A good source of protien and healthy fats.

Oh no! I don't think my coco puffs make the list! LOL!

Seriously though, I eat tons of salads. Even as my "in-between" meals snack!
I'm also hooked on salt free tortilla chips with some fresh salsa! Yumm-o!

Mmm...that was all my sister had for cereal when I was there last week. What a nice excuse not to eat Special K or cherrios

Re: Healthy snacks during pregnancy.

I munched on watermelon or cheerios pretty much non-stop.

Cottage cheese was another addiction.

For the sweet treat, I kept a pint of the Haagandas deserts chocolate mouse ice cream. The pint always lasted me 8 to 12 sittings as it was very rich and satisfied very quickly!

All of these kept naseousness at bay!
