This week Chrissy Teigen and John Legend said "peace out" to their New York loft and followed the sunshine to their new (larger) abode in Los Angeles to accommodate their growing family. Spotted along for the move was a nice big box of UnReal snacks—a candy brand that promises healthier alternatives to your fave candies—transported by Teigen.

Back in October, the gorgeous preggy found herself amidst a hurtful Twitter feud after posting a selfie with a big classic bowl (who could blame her?) of Cap'n Crunch and Fruity Pebbles. Plenty of tweeters found the tasty evening snack offensive, and started attacking her for endangering her unborn baby with all of the added chemicals, food dyes and sugar that are packed into a heaping sweet bowl of the processed cereal. Teigen had zero issue standing up to her haters and warned them to stay out of her uterus—and we totally had her back on that.

In actuality, Teigen is likely nailing one of the biggest philosophies in nutrition, which counts twice during pregnancy—everything in moderation. Her food-porn worthy Instagram shots of healthy food choices alone could teach all of us a few things. Some of our favorite recipe ideas from Chrissy's Instagram are: Tortilla Stew, Fresh Mango Salsa and Spicy Zucchini Noodle Pasta. Sure, the occasional bowl of sugary cereal has squeezed into her feed, along with a cheeseburger that we (or she) will not deny—but it's all good, right?

Teigen's choice to have UnReal snacks over regular store-bought candy shows she is not afraid to give into her pregnancy sweet-tooth, but is making an effort to choose simple and natural ingredients. Thanks for setting a great example for the rest of us preggies, Chrissy!
