Before I had Ella I did not understand how Mom’s constantly claimed they did not have time to make healthy food for themselves when they had a newborn. How much work could a newborn be? Well now I am eating my words, literally. I totally see how moms have zero time to EAT, let alone make a healthy meal.
I have a renewed commitment this week in my mission to eat healthy even with a newborn. I know my meals need to be fast and need to easily be eaten with one hand.
This week at the grocery store I spotted pre-cut peppers and onions. Perfect! Buying pre-cut veggies is more expensive then cutting them yourself , but when your time is limited this is the only way to go.
Today for lunch I threw the pre-cut peppers and onions with a little olive oil and chile powder in a pan to sautee. While those cooked I threw in some black beans that I had rinsed from the can, and voila!! LUNCH! Made in 5 minutes flat and even included protein and veggies. I even ate it while I pumped and the little one napped in her swing. Its all about multi tasking now that I am a mom!
Happy lunching mommies!!
