Seriously, in the 4 months since my son was born, at a time when I am providing all of his nutrition and should be eating very healthy foods I have only eaten junk that I can grab in a moment and eat while I nurse. I need healthy, inexpensive recipies that I can prepare furitively while baby sleeps and eat one handed when he wakes. Does anyone have a book recomendation? Anything will help. We eat some dairy as baby's tummy gets too upset when I eat too much. Anyone willing to take pity on me and develop a meal plan? Thanks all!

I'll help! What are some of the health-supporting foods that you like, and then menu-building and recipe-swapping is a bit easier.

are you veggie or a meat eater? that makes a big difference. i think it is important to have lots of super healthy food in the house at all times- organic eggs, organic cheese, whole grain bread (we like ezekial bread), greens, tempeh (or maybe roast beef or turkey if you eat meat)- you could make yummy sandwiches with that stuff. you could make 4 or 5 ata time, and wrap them up to eat when you are hungry.

Do you have a sling? If you find a good sling that's comfortable & reasonably easy to use, it'll help A LOT because you won't be restricted to foods you can prepare & eat onehanded.

Once when dd was tiny & spent most of her time in the sling, DH came home from work & pointed out to me that she had toast crumbs & jam on her head :LOL

thanks for the help! we eat eggs and some dairy and likeboca burgers, but no other meat-subs along those lines. we like cassaroles and i'd like to use the crockpot more. my 5 year old is a bit picky and tends to like mostly lunch type foods and cream soups - i'd like ways of preparing veggies that aren't surrounded by so much dairy and fat that a kindergartener will like. thanks so much for your help. i will try the sandwich idea, i've done it for my husbands lunches before but not just for myself.
