Post pregnancy easy snacks

I think back to when I was breast-feeding a new born baby.  All I remember is being hungry ALL the time and never having time to eat.  I needed easy healthy snacks that were easy to grab and go!  

This list of EASY healthy and yummy snacks is going to save your life.  Whether you have a newborn, tons of work, crazy family life, or just don't enjoy prepping foods.  Many friends and family have shared these great recipes with me and I have LOVED them. 

-Chia seed pudding. Great recipes located here!

-Quinoa with an over easy egg, avocado, and salsa.

-Overnight oatmeal. Great recipes located here!

-Celery dipped in salsa.

-Nuts and dried fruit mix.

-Smoothies.  Mix any milk, nuts, fruit, flax seed, wheat germ, chia seeds. Takes maybe five minutes to blend!

-Wheat english muffin with peanut butter, honey, and strawberries.

-Cheese and grape plate. Chop up some cheese and wash some grapes.  Easy as pie! 

-Hummus and pita bread. Have hummus and pita bread on hand for a dipping snack.  Try dipping veggies in as well!

-Baked chickpeas.  Rub chickpeas in olive oil and whatever spices you want.  Bake at 400 degrees for forty minutes! 

-Cous Cous with nuts and raisins mixed in.  Make cous cous according to package, after turning off heat add in fruits and nuts. 

-Whole wheat tortilla pizza: dump marinara sauce and cheese on tortilla.  Top with veggies around house.  Stick in microwave or oven!
