I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! Ours started out a little rough on Monday due to a long Sunday night, but we are doing better as the week goes on. A little sleep and some sunshine does a world of a difference!
As I mentioned last week, most of my eats lately have been all about convenience. When you’re feeding, changing, rocking, and pumping around the clock, it leaves very little time for preparing food. However, it’s also very important that I’m getting adequate calories and nutrition since I’m breastfeeding. I’ve pretty much been rotating around some of the same foods these last couple weeks. I find them to be satisfying, easy, and (mostly) nutritious.
PB&J on Toast
This does great as a midnight snack, part one of my breakfast, or a mid afternoon snack. I usually pair it with a glass of milk too.
Cereal isn’t usually the nutritionally best food in the book, but it’s not the worst either. It’s so easy to throw some in a bowl, add some milk or yogurt, and call it good!
I mentioned this one last week… It’s still a favorite! So much so that I made a special trip to the grocery store just for trail mix.
I am loving these bars for an on-the-go snack. They are packed with super foods and they don’t have any artificial sugars or ingredients.
This is where a good chunk of my produce has been coming from lately. I pack my smoothies with frozen fruit (my favorite lately has been strawberries, pineapple, and banana), spinach, Greek yogurt, and milk.
I’ve been cooking quick oats in the microwave and adding some fruit and nut butter for an easy breakfast most mornings. Supposedly oatmeal is a natural way to help increase milk supply, plus it’s easy and delicious, so why not?!
These are so easy to throw in the microwave and add to any meal for some extra veggies.
There you have it! Some of my go-to eats as of lately. I have a feeling they’ll be sticking around for the next few weeks until we get into a little bit more of a schedule around here. By the way, this is proof that eating healthy can be easy and quick if need be!
Have a wonderful day!
