You can eat just about anything and still keep moving but honestly eating the right power packed foods is going to keep you running at a better, healthier, speed -- something all of us mamas need. 806077_fresh_vegetable1.jpgEnergy bites: To gain quick energy eat these low-calorie yet powerfully energized bites.
  • Oatmeal
  • Avocados
  • Eggs
  • Yogurt
  • Apples
Helpful bites: Suffering from morning sickness? Try these pain easing bites.
  • Gingersnaps
  • Ginger tea (I know, more a sip than a bite but it works)
  • Potatoes -- preferably baked or homemade mashed (skip the sour cream)
  • Lemons
  • Candy canes (tis the season) if it happens to not be the season try some good old peppermint candies.
Get your six plus: You need lots of veggies and fruits each day. The more the merrier. Try these bite options -- like little bites within bites.
  • Salsa! Chips are fun. Chips with chunky salsa provide extra veggies.
  • Add garden veggies to tomato-based spaghetti sauce. That's a veggie dish times two.
  • Create packed salads. Adding extras like cold sweet peas, oranges, raspberries, or cut fresh green beans can power up your typical lettuce and carrots.
  • Grill up some sweet potatoes. Cut fresh sweet potatoes, add a sliver of butter, a dash of nutmeg and wrap in foil. Grill or bake until soft and devour.
  • Make veggie burritos -- extra heavy on the salsa, bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Add some brown rice and low-fat cheese and you've got a great meal.
