I gained so much excess weight during my first pregnancy. I did better during my second, but I have been determined to maintain a healthy weight this go-around. The biggest issue I have is my sweet cravings. I have wanted sugar non-stop and it has been really hard to say no. The other day I searched healthy snack ideas and I finally found a solution! I can snack healthy and still have my sweet-tooth satisfied! Finding good snack ideas and choices is so easy if you know where to look!
Last week I headed to Publix to pick up a few groceries to get us by for the rest of the week until we left for the beach. I loaded up on Weight Watchers® snacks and fruit. My kids are huge fruit eaters (like me) and so I try to keep it around for a healthy snack option. That afternoon I ate my first NEW Weight Watchers® Snack Size Mocha Latte Ice Cream Bar and it was delicious! Hampton insisted on having the NEW Weight Watchers® Dark Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Bar, so I snuck a bite of his as well and have been hooked ever since. Best part? They are only 45 calories per bar. I don’t have to sacrifice my sweets! I also grabbed a bag of WW Mint Patties to carry around in my purse for when I am running errands and really need a snack. They are so convenient to tote round with me throughout the day making it easy to choose a healthier snack.
