I don’t talk about this much on the blog, but it’s actually something that’s really important to me & I am all about eating nutritious foods and staying active. Full disclosure, I was a cheerleader and pretty fit in high school, and then went to college and gained the freshman 25 (maybe over that?). I weighed more in college than I did the day I gave birth to either of my babies. Ridiculous.
These days, I am much more conscious of what goes into my body. I know what is good for me, what keeps me full, and most importantly, what is quick enough to make so that it’s actually realistic while juggling two kids. I wish I could say I still exercise, but those days (at least for now) are long gone. I had the bright idea to take the girls to the day care at the gym while I got on the elllyptical a couple months back & long story short, I made it eight minutes until the lady came to get me down because Avalon was over it. So even though I obviously am on my feet all the time anyways (also because of those two little ones!), I choose to focus on eating well for the most part and so far, this has worked to keep my weight at a place that I feel comfortable and good about myself.
Here are foods that I have found are my go-to’s, that I not only like but that are QUICK & easy. You can click on this link to download a PDF file so that you can print this & have it as a fun reminder!
As for snacks, I recently found a new favorite, Dove® Chocolate Fruit & Nut. I have a major sweet tooth, so this is such a great option for a mid-afternoon pick me up. I’ve tried Dove® Dark Chocolate Strawberry & Cocoa Almond, Dove® Dark Chocolate Raspberry & Honey Roasted Almond, and Dove® Dark Chocolate Blueberries. All three are delicious!
You can find these at Walmart stores, look for a special in-store display or you can find them on the candy aisle.

Yum, chocolate and fruit, such a great snack!
We love the dove fruit and chocolate snacks too… The raspberry was my favorite :). And I too find it easier to eat healthier at breakfast and lunch. I definitely find it harder to eat healthy though when Noah just wants chicken nuggets ;). And for some reason I can't picture you chubby, even in college!
Helpful because I am always looking for good lunch ideas, especially! And this pregnancy has me craving sweets so a healthy twist is much appreciated. 😉
I'm pretty good the whole day until dinner then I just want all the potatoes. I love Dove chocolate, these look delicious.
Cannot wait to print that out and stick it on my fridge I definitely need quick and easy healthy options because I have no time to be preparing for hours on end!
I love looking for healthier choices. Thanks for sharing this sweet lady!
Great choices, mama! And those look delicious! XOXO
These are great! thanks for sharing! xo
YUM. Fruit and chocolate…win win.
