    Default Healthy post natal foods

    I have a cookbook called 'feed the bump' that is for pregnancy but has a post-natal section and the recipes throughout are obviously all about healthy choices and quite yummy! It speaks a lot about what foods offer what as well so that may help you with planning?

    Stir fry
    Curry
    Lasagne
    Spaghetti bolognaise sauce
    Casseroles
    Pizza bases and pizza sauce

    All these things can be frozen. You can cook your pizza bases from frozen and they just take a bit of assembly, but still quicker than starting from scratch the night you want it. Plus you can control the amount of salt you put in.

    For more "fresh" ideas, you can buy some marinated lamb steaks and have a warm lamb salad. Same goes for chicken and salad or beef salad.

    'Pregnancy' autocorrected to 'beef any' in my post, just an FYI in case you were wondering what the eff I was on about!

    After my first I used my slow cooker heaps (but I was going into winter so its not all that great for now). Stir fry (quick and easy), quiche, pasta bakes, pizza. For snacks if you have time bake some scrolls. Pikelets are good. Dip with veg/crackers and cheese. Smoothies are good for 'I am exhausted and have no time/motivation/hands'.
