Hello. Hello, it’s Monica. Happy Saturday. Hope you’re having a great weekend.
I don’t know if you guys know this; actually you don’t because I’ve never told anybody, but I have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes…
I’m pregnant and I apparently have diabetes with that.
So, while it was kind of interesting because it’s making me learn a lot, it comes with a lot of ups and downs.
There’s some emotional things around that, and then there’s some good things and some bad things. It’s forcing me to be a little bit healthier, which is never really a bad thing…
But a couple of weeks ago I was at an event that they did not have a break at all. It was an all day event called Funnel Hacking Live. It was a lot of fun except I’m pregnant, hungry and in need of eating healthy snacks, which is why I went to Google and sort of experimented that week.
So I thought I would share with you six of the snacks that I found to be the easiest and the healthiest for me in this situation.
#1 – Fruit
The first one that’s super simple. So I would pack an apple or some berries.
#2 – Cheese Sticks
I really like string cheese, but I really also like the Colby Jack and Monterey sticks. Those are super delicious to me.
Those are really great because as I was sitting there, trying to listen and pay attention but hungry. So, I just grabbed those and started eating them.
#3 – Individual Nut Butters.
So those too were really great, especially if I have an apple with them.
Super, super easy.
#4 – Protein Shakes
This is fun and easy. These are packets and then I would just take a shaker bottle. And, there’s so many ways to make a great protein shake and I really loved several of them.
#5 – Protein bars also were really nice.
#6 – Muffins
So I’ve been actually making this muffin recipe that I made for years. They’re super, super fun.
I used to freeze them when I lived by myself. I’d make like 12 at a time and then I’d eat one every morning with my coffee. So I’ve been making this for a long time. That’s actually a Paleo Pumpkin muffin recipe.
So those are what I found to be great and healthy. And I just wanted to share them with you today because, like I said, I’ve been having to adjust my eating with this pregnancy and this diagnosis.
So, let me recap those six again.
2. Protein shakes
3. Individual nut butter packets, like peanut butter or almond butter.
I like the Justin’s brand and that’s not just because my husband’s name is Justin.
4. Cheese sticks
5. Protein bars
So if you are in need of some healthy snacks on the go, I would love to help you out even more.
Let me know. Send me a private message, and I will give you my muffin recipe if you want it, or my favorite protein shake recipes. I have a few that tastes like dessert. They’re so delicious.
So let me know. I’ll get those to you. Be happy and stay healthy when you’re out on the go. And I would love to hear your snack ideas too. I will talk to you tomorrow.
