We can all find ourselves guilty of neglecting the old ‘5 a day’ rule for veggies, even when we are focused on losing pregnancy weight.
While we might fill our plates with vegetables at dinner time, another great way to up your intake is to incorporate veggies into your snacks.
By adding protein as well, in whatever form, it will then become a nutrient dense, filling, healthy eating snack that will see you through comfortably until the next main meal.
Today we have 10 great veggie packed snacks that also contain plenty of protein.
You’ll notice how much fuller these keep you than a carb-only or veggie-only snack. Try them and see for yourself.
