allright guys I need your help I am a huge craver of junk food........ like id live on mcdonalds, slim jims, and jolopino poppers if i were allowed to.

I need to know some very quick and easy healthy pregnancy snacks like preferable open and put in mouth easy im going to try to fill my house with things that I should be eating that i wont get ticked off about having to prepare when the feed me nowwwwww hits.

so far im thinking of picking up

canned fruit
dried fruit (specifically bannana chips idk if there helthy but there yummy lol)
string chesse
nuts (probably cashews or almonds)
and flavored rice pouches (ok so maybe not super healthy but sometimes you need cheddar broccoli rice an you need it now)

what else you guys got for me?

im terrible at thinking up healthy snacks the only thing i think of when i hear the word "healthy" is those stupid ricecakes my mom was allways eating whenever she tried to diet oh whats that sweetie you want a snack well heres a Styrofoam wafer for you to choke down im not a fan of rice cakes if ya didnt notice.

Well popcorn takes a bit of prep but is healthy if you don't get butter version or add too much extra salt.

Fresh fruit and veggies too of course. If you have the money, you can buy cut up veggies.

Its hard to get healthy snacks premade since the healthiest is fresh food.

Fruit (canned, dried, or otherwise) carries a lot is sugar. Fruit is fine in moderation, but don't overdo it. I like goldfish, wheat thins, and cherry tomatoes as snacks for on the go.

I make my own trailmix with walnuts, almonds, granola, yogurt covered pretzels, dark chocolate chips, dried apricots, and sesame sticks.

It has a little of everthing in it and I always carry a little bag of it where ever I go.

Boiled eggs, apple slices and peanut butter, avocado, veggies and hummus/ranch.
Put black beans and shredded cheese on a tortilla, nuke in the microwave.
Mix granola, plain yogurt, and a drizzle of agave nectar.
