Wow - it sure doesn't sound like y'all eat very much for nursing mamas .... I get so hungry and thirsty ... but then again, I have *always* been a big eater, and only now do I have good reason.
I do eat soy, but in much lower amounts than I used to in the past - like several times a week instead of several times a day. I also prefer the less-refined forms (organic tofu vs. commercial fake meats) though I occasionally have a veggie breakfast sausage when I'm craving the protein and liking the convienence. I hardly ever drink juice - but I try to drink LOTS of water. It is easy to forget, until I feel like crap and realize half the day has gone by and I haven't had any water to speak of.
I am LOVING the "eat lots of (good) fat" part of being a nursing mama - my midwife forbade me to eat anything labelled "fat-free" and discouraged "lowfat" for when I was either pg or nursing! I eat avocado and olive oil like nobody's business and it must all be going right to my little guy because I am smaller than I was pre-pregnancy after 10 months.
Typically, I eat eggs and whole grain bread/tortillas for breakfast, or soup and whole grain bagels, or organic plain whole milk yogurt and granola and nuts.
I sometimes have a morning snack of trail mix, or fruit, or just Mama milk tea.
Weekdays (I work FT outside the house), Lunch is leftover dinner from night before, or a frozen veg entree from Trader Joe's, or a baked tofu or cheese sandwich or homemade burrito.
Afternoon snack is same as morning, or little bit of salad or carrot sticks/hummus, or cottage cheese, or an organic fruit/nut bar or Luna/Lara bar.
Most Common Dinners: mexican food (variations on beans, cheese, salsa, avocado, tortilla/chips, tomato, lettuce mix, etc.), whole grain pasta and soy meat balls and veggies, or stiry-fry veggies over brown rice or quinoa, or veg/quorn burgers and salad, or something similar.
I often eat a before-bed snack of plain organic yogurt with a touch of blackstrap molasses if I haven't already eaten some yogurt that day.
Those are the good days - of course there are some days when I get to dinner and am craving veggies and realize I've had carbs and cheese all day! We all do the best we can...
