Healthy Snack Recipe For Pregnancy

 

Healhy snack recipe

 

 

If you want to prevent EXCESS WEIGHT GAIN so that you can lose all your baby weight super fast postpartum, then you have to make an effort to eat healthy.  Not perfect, not diet, just make good and healthy choices.

 

What you eat affects your baby as well.  And so does exercise, check this out…

 

 

 

 

 

I did my Fit Mom-to-Be Workouts during both my pregnancies and only gained 20 lbs in each and lost it all in less than a month.  But it’s not just me, check this out…

 

 

 

If you exercise moderately and make good food choices, you will not gain a lot of weight and if you don’t then yo will be able to enjoy your pregnancy so much more.  

 

You will have less aches and pains, you won’t be so uncomfortable at the end, you will have more energy and sleep better, you will have an easier and faster labor and delivery and you will lose all your baby weight so much faster.

 

Today, I want to give you a really yummy and super easy recipe to make for a healthy snack.  Because if you can leave your house prepared with healthy snacks, that is half the battle.

 

It can be so easy to eat healthy and feel good if you want to.  

 

I also made sure to add PROTEIN to the recipe, because protein is so important.

 

I used mPower because it is the best pregnancy protein powder.

 

mPower is protein powder specifically formulated for pregnancy and breastfeeding.

 
It was created with a doctor and its not only the most delicious protein powder you have EVER tried…. but it also counts as your prenatal.
 

 
And an added plus is it has all the B vitamins which helps with nausea and morning sickness, also helps with energy and if weight gain is a problem… it helps with that because it helps combat cortisol which is normally high during pregnancy because we aren’t sleeping enough, not quality sleep, we are under stress.. and when cortisol is high, it makes it easier to gain BELLY FAT…
 
 
And what prego needs more belly fat?  lol
 
Did I mention how delicious it is?
 

 
It also has prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes…
 
So if you normally get gassy and bloated and constipated from protein powders… this is a game changer.
 
Plus, digestion affects weight gain and weight loss.
 
When you fix digestion… its easier to not pile on the pounds because you can burn fat more effectively… and digestive enzymes and probiotics will help with that.
 
Did, I tell you that its insanely good and also helps crush cravings?

I know that you may not know how much to eat or what to eat or what nutrients to make sure you eat so that the baby can benefit and so that you don’t gain a ton of weight.  So here is what I did for you to help you a little…

 

I made this 2-Week Nutrition Guide to give away for FREE to all my pregos because I work with so many in my Fit Mom-To-Be Workout Program that always have so many NUTRITION questions.  

 

So, I figured I would make this in an easy to read, print and follow way to help you take the guesses out of how to eat optimally during your pregnancy.

 

If you follow it and you EXERCISE, you will not just have a great pregnancy but you will feel CONFIDENT, RADIENT, GLOWING.  You won’t be uncomfortable and have aches and pains because you’ve gained so much weight.  You will have an easier labor and delivery.  You will sleep better, have more energy.  And you will seriously decrease your chances of falling into POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION.

 

I can’t wait for you to get this Nutrition Guide, the recipes are amazing, and there are so many different options for snacks. You are going to love it.  Download it here:  PREGNANCY NUTRITION GUIDE.

 

Ok, now I want to share with you this yummy recipe.

 

These are a great snack to use on the go during your pregnancy.  They refrigerate great for about a week and they freeze awesome also.  So you can make 2 dozen at a time and freeze one and keep the other in your fridge for a quick on the go yummy and healthy snack.

 

Remember, that going too long without eating is what makes us feel terrible during pregnancy.  You can’t let too much time go by in between meals or you will feel sick.

 

And THEY ARE GLUTEN-FREE!

 

You can play around with the recipe by adding your favorite fruit, preserves, nuts, spices etc.

I hope you love these as much as I do.  I actually ate these all throughout both my pregnancies and I also froze like 4 dozen right before I had the baby so that I had HEALTHY SNACKS for when I was nursing in the middle of the night with those HUNGER PANGS.  

 

At least I had something healthy and yummy to eat.  They were great.

 

I hope you eat healthy during your pregnancy and I hope you exercise too!  Its so worth it.
