miso soup is E-Z!! at the natural grocers, in the refrigerated section, they sell miso paste. it's similar in taste to soy sauce. stir a spoonful of it into some hot water. just don't cook it, b/c that kills the healthy enzymes in it. you can also add some sliced scallions, tofu cubes, carrot matchsticks, etc. yum! the white and yellow are mellower in flavor than the red, if you're new to miso and it's flavor.
i was thinking also of buying some of those vegan energy bars in the yellow wrappers. they're made with really good stuff...no soy protein isolate, weird sweeterners, etc. i bought a gallon of org. apple juice and a couple recharges the other day for the birth. i'm not sure what else. i like the easy snack ideas. dh and i talked about having a well-stocked kitchen around birth time, so if i don't eat it during birth, i'll definitely eat it when i'm breastfeeding. also, it will take some of the post birth burden off him since he won't have to go to the co-op as soon after the birth.
