Left 4 wks postpartum-Right 8 wks postpartum

I’ve compiled a list of my favorite (HEALTHY) refueling snacks. With Daniel in school full time AND working full time, 3 kids (one of them a newborn), homeschooling, puppy, housekeeping, cooking…just to name a few, it seems impossible to take time for myself…but one way I find joy from day to day is the food I look forward to eating that day. Haha, I’m not even joking…is that pretty pathetic that a highlight of my day is what I put in my mouth? Probably. But it’s a fact. It’s even better when I know what I’m putting in my body is actually helping me maintain my weight loss + tone, aaand keeping my milk supply up. So I’m sharing the love by listing my fav snacks so just maybe other moms out there can be just as pathetic as me 😉 lol

1. These brownies are the absolute (outdated phrase I know.) I’ve been eating these daily for almost 2 months now. They are high protein treats (22 g !!!) and low carb, low sugar low fat.
The chocolate is the best in my opinion. I’ve tried the birthday cake and tuxedo as well, and they both are more dry and crumbly. The plain chocolate by far tastes and feels most like an actual brownie.
2. This brownie is amped up in deliciousness with this “coffee” drink. Not really coffee…literally barley, chicory and sugar beets. But I love the smell and taste of this drink I pick up from Walmart. I’m not a coffee drinker myself so I’m not sure how it compares…but hey, if you are and trying to cut back on the caffeine addiction, here’s a healthy tasty alternative 😉 I’ve experimented with it a few ways to get it to how I like it. I’ve used milk, sugar, syrups, honey etc. But the best and lowest in calories is
2 tbls of the beverage, 8 oz hot water & 1 tbl Italian Sweet Cream coffee creamer.
3. Pumpkin Protein Bites. I usually make a bunch and store them in the fridge to spread throughout the days (if they last that long….the entire fam loves them) HERE is the recipe.

Here are some other quick and easy healthy snacks I always have around the house.

  • Oberto Jerky-either the big bags or the pack of 1.2 oz bags.
  • Habanero Almonds-If I’m able to get to them before my husband finishes them off
  • Heavenly Hunks-if you have not yet had these GET ON IT! Plus they have lots of oats (which I’ve heard is good for milk production) Costco has them for the best $
  • Homemade plain yogurt, berries, granola
  • HLTH CODE shake-I cannot LIVE without my shake every day. Yes it has lots of calories, but they are good calories and nutrients you need and are hard to get the right amounts of in regular food (ie, collagen, protein, healthy fats, apple cider vinegar etc) Plus it curbs my cravings for the day and I’ve noticed a difference in my skin and hair 😀
