Anyone have and ideas for what you want for your first meal postpartumn? I remember with DS I had some awful frozen dinner that the nurse at the hospital gave me. I did sneak a little food in early labor at the hospital but it had still been at least 24 hours since I had eaten by the time I got that little frozen dinner and I was starved and miserable.
So, given that we're planning a homebirth this time around I'm putting a bunch more thought into what I want that first meal to be. I'm thinking I really want a beef stew. It's one of my favorites, it seems seasonal and with the bone broth, veggies and all it would be pretty nutrition dense. I was also thinking that could be put in a crockpot in early labor and hopefully it would be done when I'm ready for it. I am debating whether I should try to make it up and freeze it ahead of time or not. Otherwise, I guess I could start making one a week around 37 weeks and keeping it in the fridge to heat up. I'm not sure I want to have to chop veggies and stuff even when in early labor.
I'm also planning on making a grain-free groaning cake in early labor. I've been comparing different recipes for grain free cakes and groaning cakes and I think I have come up with a recipe that will work. I'm going to do a test run on that soon though.
