Just wanted to share some eats from our first week with a newborn!
Mal and I are really trying to eat healthy, so I started documenting our recent meals. (During my pregnancy, we really didn’t eat well, so now we’re trying to get it together.) Mealtime is definitely different nowadays, so it’s nice to have someone to help keep me motivated to eat healthy.
Recently, I’ve noticed that I find myself forgetting to eat, which I know sounds absolutely crazy. I am sonot one of those people who forgets to eat (like ever), but with a little one taking up the majority of my attention, I’ll go hours and hours without eating, only to find myself starving. Meal prep has been quick and easy (a lot of throw-together dishes) and, thankfully, we have all sorts of prepared foods from family and friends in the refrigerator waiting for us now, so that has made life a zillion times easier too.
Some eats from the past week”¦
Whole Foods salad and hot bars
American Chop Suey
Ham and cheese lettuce wraps

Cherries! Great for late-night snacking
Bread + honey peanut butter – another great late-night snack
Veggies and pita chips with The Laughing Cow cheese

I’ll share more eats next week. Documenting my meals definitely helps keep me on track!
