Favorite Pregnancy Snacks

As a person who generally has a good grasp on her fitness and nutrition, I'll be the first to admit that pregnancy is rough when it comes to cravings. I can't tell you how many times I've had a good lunch planned out and then when it came time to eat, could not stomach the idea of eating what I had originally had in mind. No, my body craved something greasy and carb-loaded instead. While I have given into this craving a time or two, I really have been cognizant about keeping healthy snacks around at home as well as at work. The easier they are to grab and go, the better. Here are some of my favorite snack options for pregnancy {and beyond!}

Apple Slices & Cheese




Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt & Fresh Berries


Lowfat Cottage Cheese


Wasa Crackers and Natural Peanut Butter


Obviously, you can see my cravings err on the side of dairy and sweet things. So I try to at least have my sweets mostly come from fresh fruit. I know too much dairy is not good, but when you are pregnant, protein is necessary for a healthy fetus, so I don't mind indulging a little on that end for now.

What are your go-to healthy snacks?
