FOOD | HEALTHY SNACKS

healthy snackscaprese bites

For the last few months it’s been kinda tricky finding healthy snacks and foods in general that agree with this growing baby inside of me.  I’ve always been a snacker more-so than a full meal eater, so that’s been one fun thing about being pregnant, because I can only eat small amounts at a time and I need to eat frequently, otherwise I start getting nauseous (NO FUN! I don’t recommend nausea to anyone)

These caprese bites and cucumbers bites have been on repeat for me.  Because they are tasty, healthy and contain protein.  I don’t like to use pregnancy as an excuse to start eating crappy, that’s just not me.  I feel so much better when I eat clean foods.  Although it’s a little tricky to be fully raw like I was before getting pregnant, I can still eat plenty of fruits and veggies.  Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still human, and when I get a craving for something that’s not the best food choice, I still do it, because anything that will keep me from feeling sick, and will get some calories inside me is a good thing.  Last night is a perfect example in fact.
Daniel and I havne’t had a date night in who knows how long (I meant we go to the Temple and everything-but we haven’t eating out in ages) and out of nowhere I got a killer craving and decided to cash in our much delayed “date night” by having Daniel pick up some things I was craving on his way home.  Buffalo Wild Wings (Wing Tuesday!  If you don’t already know about it, then you’re insane!  It’s half off wings night) along with some of their mac and cheese (sooooo good) and biscuits from Popeyes.  And he brought me a donut from his office.  And I totally ate EVERYTHING!  It was so delicious!  So YES I do have those days when I just go into full on indulge mode.  And now I’m eating veggies lol.  Seriously though, those bicuits MMMMHHMM!  I might try to attempt making some of my own tonight, who knows.

Anyway, hopefully I havne’t convinced you to ditch the healhty snack this post is about, but if i have, wait until Wing Tuesday lol.  Here’s what I used to make everything.  ENJOY!
