Super Easy Meals For Tired New Mamas
Get these meals on the table quickly with little prep time. These are my tried and true favorites that I call upon when working with new families.
After welcoming a new baby (or babies) to your family the last thing you want to worry about is dinner. Many families will have a meal train set up or family members and friends that drop off dinner for a few days. But, what happens after the train leaves the station? (horrible pun, I know, I know)
One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well. - Virginia Woolf
These recipes can either be made ahead of time and frozen or are super easy to whip up on the day of with minimal ingredients. In other words they are approved for those days when the toddler is hanging off your leg screaming and the baby is strapped to your chest. And, as always, if you need help with dinner prep give me a call! I love cooking for my clients. I have experience with lactose intolerance, gluten sensitivity, paleo, keto, vegan ,vegetarian and varied diets. Now for the recipes....
^My carrot crop from last year! The kids loved pulling them out of the ground.
One Pan Cheesy Smoked Sausage Pasta
I've subbed ground sausage with great results.
Slow Cooker Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce
I admit this one seems intimidating. It's so insanely good though if you like curry. Put the prepped sauce and chicken in the freezer for a make ahead meal option.
Slow Cooker Shredded Mexican Chicken
This might be the easiest recipe ever.
One Pan Sweet Potato Broccoli Chicken Bake
One pan meals rocks. Throw it all in the oven for an easy, complete meal.
Baked Denver Omelet
This is the meal that keeps on giving. Throw in whatever meat and veggies you have hanging around your fridge and eat the leftovers for breakfast the next morning.
