    Hummus and carrots if my stomach is up for it. I also love to blend up a chard and kale mix with kefir, orange and strawberries.

    Dani, skinny pop is too good!

    I've been looking into doing the paleo thing but I'm a first time mom and want some feedback from any other mamas out there who've done it during their pregnancy. Anyone have any advice?

    Favorite snack is avocado with skim mozzarella on a soft shell tortilla warmed up for a few seconds. Anything with avocado is good in my book!

    I've been doing oatmeal a lot with nuts, fruit, and chia seeds. Fat free Cottage cheese with nut thins also.

    I used to do paleo when I was really sick but let me tell you, it's difficult to do. At least for me, I would look up so many recipes and try to find quick things to make that were paleo. Some were easy and great but a lot of it takes so much prep work. If you have morning sickness or anything like that I would imagine it's difficult to prepare something while feeling so bleh.

    On the plus side though I felt a million times better while eating strictly paleo but it didn't get rid of my bad days. So I had to go back to something a bit more manageable personally.

    Just food for thought, it's a great lifestyle just make sure you have the time and energy to really put into it.

    As for healthy snacks, I'm loving celery with almond butter or bananas with almond butter. So good!

    @babywood1015 so before I was pregnant my husband and I were about 80/20 paleo. Now that I'm pregnant I still try to stick to it except I've added greek yogurt in and cheese in my omelettes so that I can make sure I get my calcium intake. You can get enough from vegetables but you need to eat ALOT to do so. Green smoothies are my favorite go-to snack, especially pregnant because it calms my stomach. I generally blend together ...

    1 large handful of spinach/kale/romaine lettuce (whatever is on sale that week!)
    1/2 a cucumber
    1/2 a small tomato
    1/2 a cup of whatever fruit I buy that week, sometimes I'll buy a bag of frozen fruit (berries/peaches/strawberries) if it's more economical :)
    1/2 - 1 cup of water

    Because the fruit has so much sugar it makes it sweet and cancels out the veggie taste so you get your vitamins, a healthy snack, and deliciousness as well. Good luck!

    Lime Chobani yogurt. I know there's sugar in it, so it's more like my sweet treat, but the added bonus is the calcium and protein! YUM!

    I'm loving string cheese and apple slices right now. Also, sugar-free, fat-free pudding with fresh raspberries.
