If you’re like me, the last thing I wanted to do during my first and third trimester was stand in the kitchen cooking. When I got hungry (which was ALL THE TIME), I wanted to grab something quick and easy. If I had to put time and energy into a snack every time I reached for one, I would opt for the not so balanced option of bread or cookies. Here is my go-to list for healthy protein-filled snacks (pre-pregnancy, during pregnancy and postpartum):
1. Apple & Cinnamon Yogurt
2. Pear & Almond Butter
3. Cheese Stick with Fruit (8 g protein)
4. Cottage Cheese with Veggies
5. Hard-Boiled Eggs
6. Hummus with Veggies
7. Hummus with Pop Chips
8. Nutella, Yogurt & Strawberries
9. Apple & PB
10. Toast with PB, Bananas & Chia Seed
