Being pregnant, I sometimes have weird cravings, and more than likely they are pretty unhealthy. I don’t think this has to be a pregnancy thing though..how many of you in the evening are like “I really need something sweet!”? I thought it would be fun to share some of my “kravings” and some healthier alternatives to satisfy them.

 

Chocolate Cake or Brownies

Try this instead:

Double Chocolate Mighty Muffin (the best part is they are warm and gooey!)

220 calories: 21g carbs, 8g fat, 20g protein

 

Ice Cream

Try this instead:

Enlightened Ice Cream

macros vary depending on flavor (red velvet & movie night are my favs!)

 

Pizza

Try this instead:

Milton’s Cauliflower Crust Pizza (from Costco)

460 calories: 54g carbs, 16g fat, 24g protein (add grilled chicken for more protein)

 

A Big Bowl of Pasta

Try this instead:

My 4 Ingredient Pasta (click here for recipe.)

597 calories: 55g carbs, 20g fat, 52g protein

 

Hamburger & Fries

Try this instead:

My Lower Fat Version of a Burger & Fries (click here for recipe.)

482 calories: 39g carbs, 20g fat, 32g protein

 

Nachos

Try this instead:

My Sweet Potato Nachos (click here for recipe)

405 calories: 45g carbs, 9.7g fat, 36g protein (macros change depending on toppings)

 

Chicken Wings

Try this instead:

295 calories: 18g carbs, 7g fat, 40g protein

 

I hope some of these healthier alternatives will help satisfy your cravings, but at the same time keep you on track with your macros and/or overall health and nutrition. Most of the alternatives are not only lower in overall calories, saturated fats, etc. but include more vitamins, nutrients and higher amounts of fiber.
