When you are trying to lose pregnancy weight, it pays to increase the amount of fibre in your diet.
Fibre helps you to feel fuller for longer, meaning you are less likely to want more food straight after eating a high fibre snack (hello portion control).
It also helps to keep your digestive system in working order, meaning you are expelling waste more efficiently.
You can find fibre in foods such as healthy whole cereals (e.g. oats), fruits, veggies, nuts, and brown rice.
By combining your fibre with protein you will be well on your way to losing pregnancy weight without ever having to go hungry.
Enjoy a Healthy Mummy Smoothie
We throw in 6g of fibre per smoothie, and that’s just in the powder itself. Once you add some fruit, veggies, nuts, nut butter, LSA, or oats you are upping the fibre even more.
Check out our comparison table here and you will see that we have more fibre than other smoothies and shakes (because we know it helps you lose weight!). For one well known brand, our smoothies contain more than 7x the fibre that they do.
Use Veggies To Make Healthy Chips (Keep The Skin On)
When you are craving chips, don’t give in to the urge when you can make your own healthy version at home. We love these Sweet Potato Chips as well as these Crispy Zucchini Rounds.
You can also nibble on some Roasted Chickpeas or some steamed edamame for when a potato chip craving hits.
Make Your Own Healthy Dips
Dips are a fun way to add fibre to your diet, as they are traditionally a no-no in a healthy eating plan. When you make your own at home you can leave out all the extra sugars, salts, cream, mayo and oils that are found in commercial dips.
Why not try our simple Beetroot Hummus or our Creamy Spinach Dip. Add even more fibre by using crisp veggies as dippers.
Have Breakfast As A Snack
Small portions of porridge are a great fill-you-up snack in the cooler weather. You can also try wholegrain toast with a spread of real peanut butter.
Bake The Fibre In
You can make some of your own healthy treats at home and ensure that they are choc-full of fibre. Try this Coconutty Banana and Pumpkin Bread, Wholemeal Banana, Date and Apple Bread, or these Carrot Cake Muffins.
