You’re preggers. To keep from losing your lunch, you grab:
a) an energy bar.
b) dim sum.
c) Wheat Thins.
Our money is on C. You’re tired of A and can’t stuff B into your purse.
Try Numa snacks instead. They are new, high-protein bites that taste just like biscotti.
Invented by two pregnant and hungry moms, the sweet and nutty pieces are baked in San Francisco with all-natural ingredients. Cinnamon almond and hazelnut flavors are packed with pre- and postnatal health boosters (protein; fiber; omega-3 DHA; folic acid; calcium; vitamins C, B6, and B12), so you can start the habit while expecting and continue munching while nursing.
Plus, a resealable, crumb-catching pouch makes them easy to keep in your purse or desk without making a mess. Which is exactly what you’re trying to avoid in the first place.
Available at Bi-Rite Market, 3639 18th Street, between Guerrero and Dolores Streets (415-241-9760 or biritemarket.com); Mollie Stone’s, 635 Portola Drive, between Fowler Avenue and Teresita Boulevard (415-664-1609 or molliestones.com); Nest Maternity, 1839 Divisadero Street, between Pine and Bush Streets (415-673-3320 or nest-maternity.com); online at numasnacks.com, $12 for a three-pack.
