Pregnancy cravings have soon-to-be moms hunting down some interesting foods. From pickles to ice cream to anything spicy, you never know what the baby is going to be hungry for! And actress Shay Mitchell (who’s expecting her baby any day now) even shared her favorite pregnancy snacks.

Well, her assistant, Alexa Davis, was actually the one revealing the snacks in a recent TikTok on Mitchell’s account. Davis gave us a glimpse into her shopping basket, revealing some of Mitchell’s go-to snacks. And the best part? All three snacks are plant-based.

Plant-based foods aren’t just delicious—they also come with a significantly smaller environmental footprint. In other words, plant-based foods are associated with fewer greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller water footprint. Plus, moving away from animal agriculture benefits plants, animals, and ecosystems.

And incorporating more plant-based foods into your diet doesn’t just benefit the planet: It benefits your health, too. According to our previous research, plant-based foods help reduce the risk of heart disease and boost proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

Here are Shay Mitchell’s yummy plant-based pregnancy snacks, so you can add them to your grocery list—whether you’re expecting or not.

3 Pregnancy Snacks Shay Mitchell Loves

1. Kiwi

Yes, this first one is simple—but delicious! According to Davis, kiwis happen to be one of Mitchell’s pregnancy cravings. Perfect timing: Kiwifruit is in season throughout the spring.

And we’re in luck. Kiwifruit made the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) “Clean Fifteen” list this year. According to the EWG’s analysis, the produce on that list contained the smallest amount of pesticides.

2. Jackfruit “Chicken” Nuggets

Next on Mitchell’s craving list are chicken nuggets, but not just any chicken nuggets: jackfruit chicken nuggets from Jack & Annie’s.

Jackfruit is a common plant-based meat alternative. It can replace chicken or pork, and it’s commonly found in BBQ jackfruit sandwiches, tacos, and even curry.

It’s a versatile meat alternative, and it even comes with a small environmental footprint. According to our research, just 1 kilogram of jackfruit emits 0.9 kilograms of carbon dioxide. That’s about 48 times lower than the carbon footprint of cattle.

3. Fruit Bowl with Tajín

Last but not least, a fresh fruit bowl topped with Tajín seasoning is one of Mitchell’s ultimate pregnancy snacks.

To re-create this bowl (and satisfy your own cravings) you’ll need chopped watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumber, and mango. Put the chopped fruit in a bowl and top with Tajín, and you’ve got yourself a flavorful snack.

Plus, you can customize this fruit bowl to your liking—and you can use fruits that are in season right now! A few spring fruits to add to your bowl are bananas, kiwifruit, pineapples, and strawberries. And some summer fruits to add are blueberries, cantaloupe, cucumbers, honeydew melon, and even tomatoes.
