I wanted to jot down what I liked to eat in my first pregnancy so I can remember come the 2nd time around (God, I’m so not ready to think about that yet…) and I figured it could perhaps be interesting to anyone out there struggling to keep their food choices healthy and not boring.

Quinoa Puff Bars are made with quinoa puffs (obvi), organic almond butter, real maple syrup and 70% + organic dark chocolate.
