In honesty, this was the first New Year that began for me without a diet. I’m pregnant; the only goals that I set for myself was to gain a healthy amount of weight for my pregnancy and to eat less processed, more nutritious foods. Finding healthier snack options can be tricky. It’s easy to run to a vending machine or to a box in the cabinet to grab a snack when you’re hungry. It takes planning and forethought to snack intentionally. Today I’m sharing some tips for choosing healthier snack options such as Weight Watchers Light Mozzarella String Cheese, and how I’m eating with more intention.
My favorite snack is a combination of sliced crisp apples, roasted and salted almonds, and creamy Weight Watchers Light Mozzarella String Cheese. It’s a nice combination of proteins, calcium, and carbohydrates to help me feel full and satisfied. Weight Watchers Light Mozzarella String Cheese is made from real milk, and at only 1 SmartPoint per serving is a guiltless snack. It can be found in the diary/cheese section of your local Walmart store, and they’re already individually portioned.
Tips for choosing healthier snack options:
I’m also trying to eat more raw fruits and vegetables. I’m trying to keep things such as oranges, grapes, carrot sticks, mini-cucumbers, bananas, and cherry tomatoes that can be easily repackaged or eaten on-the-go.
While I was struggling with hyperemesis, I had an aversion to all meat sources. My nurse midwife said that I needed to consume protein from meatless sources since I wouldn’t eat meat. She reminded me that there was some protein in cheeses, but I needed to consume more nuts and beans to help with my protein deficit. Beans were an unlikely option for me. We had “soup beans” at least once a week growing up, because they were cheap and easy to feed a big family. I don’t like walnuts, but I do enjoy most other nuts. Almonds, cashews, pecans, and lesser-processed nut butters make it easier to fill the protein void and make me feel full. The individual packets of nuts are expensive; I often look for sale prices on large bags and using zip-top bags to make individual portions.
Flavored yogurt and hummus can be easily purchased in portion controlled sizes. They’re flavorful, and many varieties are packed with vitamins and nutrients. They are definitely go-to snacks when my diet is feeling bland.
