Hi! You’ll probably find that you need protein and lots of it while pregnant When I was higher than I wanted to be and was super hungry, I typically ate some cheese just to get me through until I dropped. If I was in a good range, I tried to eat around 15-20 carbs, so here are some snacks that worked for me…
Apple with peanut butter
THINK brand bars (they’re pretty much pure nuts, so they’re high in good fats…essential for baby’s growth…and they’re very slow absorbing/low GI)
cheese and crackers
low carb pita bread with peanut butter
salad with cottage cheese
soups…I’m a health nut so I always chose organic brands like Amy’s Kitchen, Horizon, etc.
greek yogurt topped with nuts (greek yogurt is much higher in protein!)
Hope these ideas help! I don’t use artificial sweeteners, etc. and tend to eat whole/real/unprocessed foods so I tend to go more for fiber rich, slower absorbing foods versus the real low carb stuff. Others will probably have more ideas for you…
Warm Wishes and Congratulations! Let me know if I can help with anything else!
