It has definitely been more challenging to eat healthy during this pregnancy than my last. When I was pregnant with Hazel, I craved apples. This time, I crave chocolate and candy. But I’m making a conscious effort to reach for healthier snacks instead of giving into my cravings. And hopefully by eating healthier now, it will make it easier to loose the baby weight postpartum.

easy healthy pregnancy snacks

-Cucumbers with Laughing Cow Cheese // I peal and cut the cucumber before hand and keep it in a container in the fridge so that when it’s snack time, I can quickly prepare this snack. One cheese wedge is enough for about 7 cucumber slices.

-Dried Fruit // Dried mangos and pineapple are my favorites. Make sure no sugars or anythings is added to the fruit. It’s a healthier way to satisfy a candy craving.

healthy pregnancy snacks to curb cravings

-Healthy Cookie (recipe here) // If you’re carving chocolate, make these! They have lots of healthy ingredients in them like oatmeal, flaxseed, etc. They’re also great to eat after pregnancy to help boost your milk supply.

-Plantain Chips with Guacamole // I discovered this snack while doing Whole30 last year. If you’re craving salty foods, this is the snack for you.

-Nuts with Raisins or Cranberries // This is a great snack to throw in your purse for days when you’re on the go.

healthy and delicious pregnancy snacks

– Greek Yogurt with Berries & Cashew Butter // Sometimes I add granola and have this for breakfast too.

-Veggies with Hummus // I’m not a big veggie lover so my favorite veggies to eat with it are carrots, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes…which technically cucumbers and tomatoes are a fruit, but let’s just call them veggies 😉

10 easy healthy pregnancy snacks

-Avocado Toast // You can top your avocado toast with parmesan or feta cheese, balsamic vinegar, spices, or whatever you want. Spicy foods don’t bother me so I like mine with red pepper flakes.

10 healthy pregnancy snacks

-Apples with Cashew Butter // Tastes great with peanut butter or almond butter, but cashew butter in my favorite.

-Celery with Peanut Butter // A classic combo  that never gets old. The protein in the peanut butter really helps to make you feel full/curb your appetite too.

What are your favorite healthy snacks?
