I'm looking for something to snack on in-between meals that's light...some sort of bar or something. Any ideas?

I don't like any of the bar type snacks so I can't help you there, but I try to go for a balanced snack like:<br><br>
* Yogurt with flax seeds or wheatgerm or fresh fruit on top<br>
* Nuts<br>
* Carrots<br>
* apple and piece of cheese<br>
* dried prunes to keep me regular

I like the chewy granola bars from Kashi but only the Trail Mix flavor.

Those Kashi bars are great.<br><br>
What about a Luna Bar? They have around 10 grams of protein in one bar!<br><br>
Ok, I am eating one right now, I admit it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">:

I like trail mix. It has nuts for protein, dried fruit, and I usually get the ones with some chocolate 'cause I like it.<br><br>
Fruit is always good. I ate a lot of apples in early pregnancy because they were easy to carry around.<br><br>
Yogurt is good, calcium and protein.<br><br>
I did find a granola bar I liked with lots of almonds. It was sweet and salty.

Larabars are good too, particularly if you're looking for something sweet.

I'm not one for bars, but I've been snacking on sea vegetables, mostly nori (I can't stand dulce), non toasted. rip the sheet apart and enjoy! mmmmmm

My favorite to-go snacks this pregnancy (all high protein):<br><br>
almonds - raw or roasted but not salted<br>
almonds w/ dried apricots<br>
almonds w/ dried cranberries especially ones with orange essence<br>
almond butter sandwiches w/ either honey or raspberry jelly<br><br>
Are you seeing the pattern? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Also:<br>
1/2 cup of cottage cheese with mixed fruit (frozen - heat fruit in microwave for 30 seconds)<br>
Apples<br>
Clementines if I can find them<br><br>
I'm trying to keep my bars to a minimum but like the Kashi TLC hard ones (almond! and other flavors) and the chewy ones with cherries and chocolate chips.

I try not to snack without protein, so apples and cheese, peanut butter and baby carrots, cottage cheese and tomatoes are my main snacks right now.

Ooooh luna bars! I luuuuuuuuurve those.<br><br>
Actually the apples/cottage cheese or raw almonds/un-sulphured apricots sounds good. Almond butter sandwiches with honey.<br><br>
I love these suggestions, if there's anymore out there, please post! I'm going to be printing these out. Right now it's been a big glass of V-8 for a snack. Which I love, but I'd like something more substansial.

If you want a bar, I love the Kashi ones. The only ones I don't like are the oat and honey ones. The pumpkin ones are great!<br><br>
My most common snack is usually an apple.
