Snack Ideas To Help Morning Sickness

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm 10 weeks pregnant, and my morning sickness seems to be triggered by hunger. I have class for 4 hours in the mornings so I've been trying to pack some healthy, gluten-free snacks but I tend to tire of the same things. Any ideas? Lately, I've been bringing cheese cubes, apples and rice crackers.

How about some little snack bags full of mixed nuts and dried fruit. Or some high protein muffins made out of almond flour or coconut flour. I'll make big batches of the muffins and freeze some so that I can have a variety and not get too burnt out on one kind.

A site I love to look for easy high protein baked goods is www.elanaspantry.com

She also has a great recipe for "power" bars that is really easy.

Hope you find some good snack to ward off the nausea.

Congratulations!!

I have the SAME problem, I am 12 weeks on Saturday. I have begun eating Black Jewel microwave popcorn which seems to help quite a bit. I also have apples and peaches, and carrots. The popcorn has been a HUGE part of my life recently though, that's what I am craving!

I'm kind of in the same boat. I feel sick if I let myself be hungry too long. I was sick for a bit until I started packing lots of snacks every day. But now I'm back to not feeling so great somedays.

The worst part is breakfast. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. Cereal just sounds disgusting & everytime I have had to eat cereal because there was nothing else I felt really sick. I have even tried my different flavors of Chex but they're all a no go. Gluten free pancakes, biscuits etc all sound gross too. I've been eating eggs a lot but both days this week I've had eggs I've had a hard time eating them & feel sick after.

The different snacks I've been doing is fresh fruit. I started with a variety of apples, bananas, grapes & oranges but for the past week or more all I want are oranges.

Also been eating corn nuts but only seem to be able to eat ranch or chili picante so far. The BBQ were horrible to me.

I also have some gluten free rice cakes in a few flavors.

I've made gluten free brownies & keep a few of those around.

Also some straight up chocolate.

I finally tried the Glutino Crackers too & those are pretty good. I just ordered 6 boxes on Amazon & can't wait for them to get here. I'm thinking of trying some of their suggestions of putting some peanut butter, fruit or something on top of them. I have a lot of Nutella at home that I think I could use. One of their suggestions was a slice of banana with a little honey & cinnamon on top. Sounds pretty tasty to me right now. I ate the first box mostly making little sandwiches out of them. Some ham with cheddar cheese. That was breakfast a few days in the past few weeks until I ran out of unbroken crackers.

The most appealing thing to me seems to be fruit. It used to be eggs & fruit but now it's just fruit. Unfortunately I don't think I can make a breakfast out of fruit, especially not oranges though I did do that Monday morning this week...lol

Your cheese cubes reminded me. We have some string cheese in our fridge from when we tried making gluten free cheese sticks a while back & that actually sounds good. I think I need to dig that out :)

Hopefully we can give each other good ideas for some variety.

What about Lara Bars or an Enjoy Life bar? I always keep those in my purse in case I get hungry.

Blood sugar processing and needs are different during pregnancy, and it's really common to experience reactive hypoglycemia. I ate a lot of avocados (yeah, they're expensive, but it's only for a few weeks) and eggs and apples or rice cakes with peanut butter. Cereal sometimes, but something had to go along with it to provide fat.

Avocados are a MUST in my house. I ear every 2 hours and an avocado is usually the first on my list LOL

I have gotten used to the Glutino breakfast bars myself. Pick your flavor,......about 150 calories IIRC.

They are actually quite good IMHO.

You might try roasted chickpeas. You can find lots of recipes on the web - they end up tasting rather like corn nuts, although you can make sweet versions with things like cinnamon and sugar, or savory versions with paprika, salt, pepper, etc...

They keep for about a week, and while it takes a bit to make them, it's mostly soaking overnight and baking time, and very little actual effort on your part. :)

Very healthy, too, woo hoo.
