Happy WIAW, friends! Today I’m sharing a day of eats as a breastfeeding mom of a 6 month old. I definitely eat way more carbs than I do when I’m not breastfeeding. Right now my goal is to keep up my milk supply, eat healthy filling foods, and enjoy being a mama. Here’s a day on my plate!
WIAW: Breastfeeding/ 6 Months Postpartum
Fried egg, vegan Chao cheese (creamy original flavor), vegan vegetable patty, and ketchup. My favorite gluten free bread just came out with a nuts and seeds bread and I’m sooooo excited about it! It’s Schar brand, so go out and get some…it’s worth it!
I also enjoyed some coffee with coconut milk while Aubrey napped and I made a mad dash to get some blog work done.
A couple of hours later, I was once again starving so I made a smoothie. Do you still crave smoothies in the Winter? I’ve really been craving them lately and it’s a good way to get in some fruit while fresh produce is not at it’s cheapest like in the summer. This one was spinach, kale, banana, frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, 1 scoop of chocolate Vega protein powder, and almond milk. Also had a side of a cute baby.
Dr. Praeger’s Kale burger over quinoa pasta with some marinara sauce.
Side of baby carrots straight from the bag while Aubrey played on her play mat.
Larabar in the peanut butter cookie flavor. Eaten in between nursing sessions.
Here’s a recycled stir fry photo because it gets dark at like 4:30pm and the lighting was terrible. This is basically what I ate anyway.
What’s your favorite veggie burger recipe or brand? Favorite smoothie combo?
