Eat Healthy During Pregnancy and Control Cravings

Pregnancy cravings aren’t just about wanting that big bowl of chocolate ice cream topped with dill pickles (which, for the record, we’ve never heard anyone actually wanting). The “cravings” are about that extra trip (or two) to the vending machine. The impulse to pick up something at the check-out because it sounds and looks sooooo good.

But these pregnancy cravings can be managed and controlled quite simply. A “craving” is nothing more than your body screaming at you for a little more protein, or a few good carbohydrates. Not many extra calories are needed, but eating the right things will go along way to providing you more energy and controlling cravings.

Yummmm. The nachos look amazing.
