Snack time

Quick poll- Does being pregnant allow you to indulge in an all-you-can-eat buffet mentality?
Well, apparently opinions differ on this one. I have tried to eat healthy both for the sake of my little one and the sake of my rear end. Quite often, I will turn down dessert and get the, “Oh, come on! When else in your life are you going to be allowed to eat anything you want?!” Um…never? And not now! Oh, and the ever-popular “You are eating for two!!” Yeah- but I don’t want to still look like I am eating for two when my baby is two! Don’t get me wrong, I eat regularly every two hours but don’t eat donuts every two hours.

Here are my best pregnancy snack suggestions- selected because of portability, nutrition and taste:

Just a Handful Trader Joe’s Omega Trek Mix; 170 calories, 13g fat,  healthy dose of Omega-3 (baby brain food). Ingredients: cranberries, almonds, pepitas, walnuts, pecans, and pistachios.
Chobani Greek Yogurt; 140 calories, 0g fat and twice the protein of regular yogurt. Flavors include: Black Cherry, Lemon, Plain, Blueberry, Honey, Raspberry, Peach, Pomegranate, Strawberry and Vanilla.
Sabra Classic Hummus; 160 calories, 14g fat with no cholesterol and very little saturated fat. Each serving is 2 ounces; love to eat this with:
Stacy’s Simply Naked Pita Chips; 130 calories, 5g fat and are all natural, baked not fried. They come in 1 oz or 1.5 oz single-serving bags.
