I have to eat 5-6 times a day especially while nursing, I need some new ideas for snacks because I am getting bored with the ones I already eat and my baby is only 8 weeks old.
Things I currently snack on: Veggies dipped in hummus Xochitl chips and salsa Whole wheat toast with natural peanut butter and jam Luna Bars (my go to snack bc its too easy) fruit (usually bananas, grapes, and apples)
One more question.. I LOVE cereal for breakfast. I usually eat Kellogs Raisin Bran Crunch but after loking at the ingredients I want to find something else (similiar) that doesnt have high fructose corn syrup etc bc I am TRYING to eat less sugar each day..
Kashi makes a cereal called Cinna-Raisin Crunch. I've never tried it. While it won't have HFCS, I'm certain it has Evaporated Cane Juice, which is still sugar. One of your best alternatives would be to find a basic bran cereal with no or minimal sweeteners, such as malted barley, & add raisins (& homemade granola if you feel you need the crunch). The only cereal I eat is sprouted grain Ezekial brand; which, while more expensive, is much more nutritious & filling. I love it soaked in almond milk overnight or even just a few minutes in the fridge, especially with berries, nuts, dried fruit or a little agave but know many have difficulty switching from long-time traditional favorites to this. I hope you find something you enjoy & feel good about eating!
I usually buy my Ezekial cereal at Whole Foods because that's the best price I've found, but most natural/health food grocery stores should carry it. I've also seen it at some Harmon's & Smiths (I believe it's called Kroger in other states). I like their bread too, & they even make english muffins! You'll find these in the frozen section.
I think Weetabix (http://www.weetabix.co.uk/brands/weetabix/weetabix) mixed with your own raisins (like Newmans' Own Organic) tastes just like Raisin Bran. It's 95% wheat and has little sugar (no corn syrup). It also comes in organic. A snack I got from the Bonnie Hunt show: split a banana lentghwise, fill with natural peanut butter and place in a Ziploc in the freezer. When nice and frozen, slice into "candies."
Try making the "raw balls" (a date-nut mixture) from the book or the granola. Both are delicious and filling. Also the nori burritos! I know what you mean, when I was nursing I was just hungry all the time and looking for new healthful things to eat. And though they are not superhero, Amy's organics has a non dairy beans and brown rice burrito that is very yummy and filling.
