The biggest problem with being pregnant is that so many of its symptoms contradict each other. Increased sex drive, but frequent headaches. Insatiable hunger, but debilitating nausea. Intense food cravings, but no way to instantly satisfy them. The latter always got me. I would crave something salty, sweet, or savory (or all three), but lack the energy to cook anything. This was especially annoying since most of my cravings were for full-on meals. So how did I make it through nine plus months of dietary desires? I opted for easy-to-make- snacks that satisfy pregnancy cravings.
And you know what? It worked. Because I wanted such specific flavors, I could whip up a super easy snack to fulfill that craving without waiting on the delivery person, taking too long in the kitchen, or having the dish lose its appeal before I was done. Pregnancy cravings can come and go so fast, that if you spend too much time creating a chocolatey dessert, you may find that now you’re really craving some pizza. These 13 DIY snacks range from sweet to salty, including some combination dishes. But beware — small snacks means they’re probably all totally addictive and you won’t want to share. (Like you were planning on sharing anyway.)
