I do a lot of those but also:
Turkey/swiss cheese/hummus/avocado wraps (gets you some good fat)
Apples and peanut butter
Diced peaches packed in water
Hard boiled eggs
Baked sweet potatos
urbanflowerpot:I make my own granola bars - it saves money and you can play around with the recipe a lot for variety. Baby carrots, apples and oranges are my mindless fruit snacks - can't wait until the season changes for more variety!
I am completely obsessed with making things homemade so thank you for the idea!
Rather than taking a three-meal-a-day approach (or worse still, skipping two out of three), graze the day away baby-style. Eating five or six mini-meals a day will keep your blood sugar and energy levels on an even keel. Plus, since lighter meals are easier to process, they don't divert to your digestive system energy you desperately need to fight afternoon postpartum fatigue. Keep food after pregnancy snacks high in protein and complex carbs (best eaten in combo) at the ready wherever you are: low-fat cheese, hard-boiled eggs, trail mix, frozen grapes, raw veggies and hummus dip, fresh and dried fruit, soups (very sustaining when topped with a scoop of cottage cheese), and whole-grain crackers and cereal. For a quick meal-on-the-run (and when won't you be on the run?), stock up on sandwich wraps or whole-wheat tortillas, easily filled with roasted turkey or rotisserie chicken. you can read more here more other good ideas http://tinyurl.com/4kggfju
