Energizing Snacks – How to make healthy snacks to fuel your Fertility

Fertility Snacks: This sweet and crisp apple is just for me and impossible to resist. In the bag, the bounty of the autumn, with a variety of fresh fall vegetables.

Do you get in a snack-rut? Do you get bored of eating the same things, or do you go too long between meals because either nothing sounds good or because you simply forget to eat?

How’s your energy? I are you getting worn down – physically and/or emotionally?

If you nodded ‘yeah’ to any of the above, the best thing you can do for yourself right now is keep your tank on full. Running on empty will only further deplete you. This means not going more than 3-4 hours without a nourishing snack or meal.

I talk a lot about eating enough and fueling frequently (fertility is NOT the time for intermittent fasting).

Here’s why: your body needs consistency. It needs to trust that there is steady fuel coming in, so it’s safe to reproduce 🤰🤰🏾🤰🏻⁠.

That’s where frequent fueling and nourishing snacks comes in. For your fertility, your goal is to nourish yourself every 3-4 waking hours.

The key to an energizing snack or meal is FFP: Fat, Fiber & Protein.

For example:

  • Grabbing an apple (fiber)? Add almond (almonds) + protein (turkey jerky)
  • Oatmeal (fiber) for breakfast? Add fat (flax & chia seeds) + protein (scoop of collagen or egg on the side).

Here are snack solutions to get you fueling your fertility:
