Fibre is definitely your friend when you are trying to lose pregnancy weight.
Not only does it help to keep you feeling fuller for longer on less calories, it also helps to improve your digestive health (which means your bowel movements are regular).
Fibre can be found in many sources, such as fruits (keep the skin on!), vegetables, nuts, brown rice, oats, quinoa, rye, corn, wholegrain bread, and in cereals such as All Bran and Weet Bix.
When it comes to losing pregnancy weight, the best foods that you can choose will be high in fibre and protein, and low in added sugar and saturated fat.
Today we have 10 of our favourite high fibre snacks that you can enjoy as part of your healthy eating plan while you lose pregnancy weight.
And here’s a bonus one!
Did you know that your morning Healthy Mummy Smoothie contains 6g of fibre? And that’s before you add any fruits, veg or oats. That’s the most amount of fibre you’ll find in any smoothie based weight loss product.

Sweet Potato Chips (207 calories)

These little beauties are a cinch to make in the oven, and come out like crispy wedges (without any deep fat fryer in sight). For an extra fibre hit, give the potatoes a wash but leave the skin on before slicing up. Recipe here.

Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas (105 calories)

It’s so easy to bake your own crunchy chickpea treats that are full of fibre (but feel like you are eating chips!).

Edamame Beans, 1/2 Cup (120 calories)

These are young soybeans which are packed with protein and fibre, meaning they will keep you feeling satisfied for a while after eating them. They’re often available from Japanese restaurants, so tuck in while you wait for your sushi!

Mango, 1 Whole (112 calories)

In our Calorie Bible we compiled a list of high fibre fruits, and mango topped that list at 4.9g per whole fruit. Enjoy a chilled mango on a hot day as a delicious and naturally sweet snack and know that you are making a good choice.

Dried Fruit and Nuts (90 calories) 

Dried fruit is high in fibre, and pairing it with some nuts means you get the double benefit of more fibre plus some protein too. It’s important to watch your portion sizes on dried fruits and nuts though, as they can be high in calories. 3 dried apricots and 15 pistachios come in at just under 90 calories.

Rice Cake With Nut Butter (139 calories)

Brown rice cakes or wholegrain rice cakes are now available at some supermarkets and are full of healthy fibre. 1 wholegrain rice cake with 1 tbsp almond butter comes in at

Overnight Oats with Berries (165 calories) 

These Overnight Oats are such a genius idea – simply place all of the ingredients into a mug the night before and in the morning enjoy some soaked oats with fresh fruit and nut butter. A super filling snack, simply split a portion as a mid-morning snack.

Parmesan and Rosemary Popcorn (178 calories)

Popcorn is actually  good for you if you make it yourself (as opposed to the salty, buttery popcorn at the movies). Adding some Parmesan and Rosemary adds loads of flavour, and you really don’t miss the butter at all.  Recipe here.

Wholegrain Toast with Peanut Butter and Banana (150 calories)

Spread a teaspoon of natural peanut butter onto a slice of wholegrain toast and smear with a fork mashed small banana. This snack is packed with fibre, protein, good fats and will keep your energy levels up.

Grilled Avocado With Feta and Tomato (208 calories)

Grilling avocado is a great alternative way to enjoy this summer fruit. High in fibre and good fats, avocado offers a filling snack with the added flavours and vitamins from the cheese and tomato. Recipe here.
