Pregnancy Nutrition Healthy Snack Recipe

Now that my son is older and looking back, I am so happy that I maintained a healthy pregnancy nutrition.  I think it makes all the difference in the world.  Not only was Nicholas never sick and a very healthy baby, but he is a great eater.  And I credit that all to my pregnancy nutrition.

 

I also nursed my son for a full year so postpartum nutrition is also very important as the baby can taste the food you ingest in your meals.  So take this amazingly easy and delicious healthy snack and integrate it into your pregnancy nutrition.

I also want to encourage you to make healthy choices when eating.

Eating healthy will prevent nausea, give you more energy, and prevent excess weight gain.  Make sure that you eat every 2-3 hours.  Eat a small meal including protein, healthy starches and vegetables.  I know you are probably thinking that eating so many times a day is overwhelming, but if you are prepared with healthy snacks like this, it can be a breeze!

A perfect healthy snack is drinking a DELICIOUS Mpower PROTEIN SHAKE.

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 preggo 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?
