Pregnancy: Munch on pumpkin chips to say adios to hunger cravings
Hello, pregnant ladies residing in Watford! How have you been? I know, hungry! When you become pregnant, you become automatically hungry. Why would that not happen when you have two mouths to feed and two bodies to take care of? Pregnant women feel more hungry than any other average adult so they must eat their meals on time and munch on healthy snacks throughout the day to avoid hunger. There are plenty of healthy snack options that you can try during pregnancy. My favourite one is the pumpkin chips. Pumpkin chips are healthy, tasty, and can be easily stored for many days. Pumpkin is excellent for expecting mothers as it is rich in protein, carbs, vitamins, and minerals. Pumpkin is also low in calories so you can munch on pumpkin chips without a care about your weight in the world. As a pregnant woman, you need vitamin A and the good news is that 100 grams of pumpkin contains 8,513 IU of vitamin A!
Unfortunately, pumpkin is not liked by everyone but pumpkin chips always get the attention of the masses, so here is a quick recipe of pumpkin chips that every to-be momma must try to curb those disturbing hunger pangs during pregnancy.

Pumpkin Chips Recipe
Add thin and peeled pumpkin slices in a bowl of salt water.
Soak the pumpkin slices in the salt solution for 5-10 minutes.
Heat enough cooking oil in a deep pan for deep frying the chips.
Deep fry the pumpkin slices till they are golden brown.
Take the chips out in an absorbent paper towel.
Add the pumpkin chips in a large bowl. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika powder (the quantity of seasonings depend on your taste and the number of chips). Toss the chips so that the seasonings get coated in them.
Enjoy! Store in an air-tight container for a couple of weeks.
Preheat the oven to 220°F. Bake thin and peeled pumpkin slices in a baking tray for 20-30 minutes.
Take the chips out and season them with 1-2 pinches of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
You can easily store the chips in an air-tight container for two weeks.
