Hunger pangs are the worst specially those which make you munch on those unhealthy snacks, which is a big NO! NO! when you are trying to get back to your pre pregnancy size.
But breast-feeding can be very exhausting and can leave you hungry all the time the best way to beat those hunger pangs are salads.Salads are filling and healthy. I am not an advocate of cutting on your diet as long as you are breastfeeding or otherwise. Salads can fill as snacks, breakfast or help you eat a chapati less for dinner.
Here is one of my recipe which is easy to make
CORN SALAD WITH YOGURT DRESSING
For the salad
Sweet Corn (I use the frozen ones)-1 Bowl
For the dressing
Boil The Sweet Corn For like 5-8 mins, If you are using a pressure cooker one whistle or else you can switch off just before the whistle blows.
If you are taking a bowl of corn then make sure all the other ingredients mentioned should collectively be one bowl.
Cut capsicum, bells, cucumber,onion, tomato, apple into small cubes and mix with the corn. Keep it aside.
In a bowl take 2 table-spoon fresh yogurt, one table-spoon olive oil ,salt as per taste ,some cumin powder ,pepper , squeeze half of a lemon if you wish to make it tangy you can use a whole.mix it well.
Once the dressing is mixed well and is of even consistency pour it over the corn salad which you have kept aside. mix it well.
Your healthy corn salad is ready.
Hope it helps you keep the extra calories you gain from snacks at bay.
