Maybe you read my little announcement a couple weeks ago. If you didn’t, I’ll cut to the chase. I’m pregnant with Child #2. One of the things I struggled with when I was pregnant with E is staying full. It seems like trying to live life and grow a baby makes you burn through calories faster. 🙂
Looking back, I realize now my problem was eating the right foods. Foods with the right benefits to keep me full. Foods with protein and/or fiber. Well, this time around, I’m being more conscious about what I eat, especially when I’m hungry. Special K has come to my rescue. I was provided with a special kit full of Special K products PACKED with protein.
Starting off the day, I’ve switched my regular breakfast for the a shake, which I put in the freezer for 30 minutes before I leave for work and then in the car, I get to enjoy a nice frozen smoothie and a banana. It’s not only filling but it’s extremely satiating. So much so that all I need is an apple before lunch.
Then in the afternoon, around 3:00 when I start to wear down and feel hungry, I started eating a bowl of cereal and again, it does the trick. Not only am I not hungry, I feel full and satisfied.
The meal bars are a saving grace for anyone on the go! For me, it’s usually lunch that I have a hard time fitting in. Sometimes, I barely have enough time to run to the restroom between meetings let alone warm up some leftovers or run down to the cafe so the bars have been a real life saver. I can take them with me and eat during the meeting and feel good that I’m eating something that’s going to stick with me.
I’m not a great pregnant person, but knowing that I’ll be able to outsmart hunger effectively and in a way that allows me to stay healthy will ease some of the frustration.
