We spent so much time trying to figure out how to feed our babies, I love the suggestion that we share ideas about how to feed ourselves! I'm sure this is easier for the second-or-more time moms, maybe they have some tips for us? I can't imagine also having to feed a toddler or more kids!
I eat boiled eggs for lunch every day. DH (who is awesome) peels and cuts them for me in the morning when he's making his lunch, then puts Penzey's shallot salt and pepper on them. So I can just grab that from the fridge whenever. I am okay with eating eggs every day, I love them. Also I have a ton of almonds and a huge bag of pecans I'm trying to use up, not my favorite anymore but oh well. Last night I had "trail mix"...chocolate chips and almonds. ha.
But I am also sick of granola bars. I've been eating cups of granola instead, also for the oats for milk supply. I think it might be time to try to make some energy balls or whatever. I've seen some on pinterest.
We've been eating LOTS of crockpot meals. To be honest, DH does the cooking. I do meal planning, research and troubleshooting, and now budgeting. We are pretty much done with takeout and eating out since I'm on unpaid maternity leave. We used to eat a LOT of takeout and eat out a fair amount.
We are trying to have proteins prepared to throw into stuff. We made a bunch of plain shredded chicken and have used it in soups, salads, or simmer sauces.
Love to hear how your postpartum snacks and meals are going. I'm still dairy-free but I have no idea if it's helping, but now it's not that big of a deal so I am just going with it while we're still in colic-land.
Tonight DH will be making a kale-turkey chili recipe I found on pinterest. Wish us luck! I'm SO hungry though, I am sure I will love it. ;)
