WHAT I EAT IN A DAY – BUSY NEW MAMA!
Hi Guys! Welcome back to Healthy Grocery Girl! Today I’m sharing with you what I Eat In A Day! With a little baby at home my meals need to be quick and realistic but also be satisfying and give me energy! I hope you enjoy today’s post and it gives you some healthy eating inspiration!
PINK PROTEIN SMOOTHIEPrint Recipe
- 1 serving Protein Powder
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 1 Frozen Pitaya Dragon Fruit Packet
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 Culturelle® Pro-well® Health & Wellness Capsule 1 cup unsweetened Coconut Milk
- A Few Ice-Cubes
- Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender. Pour contents of Culturelle® capsule and blend until creamy.
I love changing up my oatmeal bowl with different fruits, nuts, seeds and spices. Here is a recipe I’m loving lately!
BANANA GOJI OATMEALPrint Recipe
- 1 ⁄2 cup Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
- 1 cup of Water
- 1 tablespoon of Goji berries
- 1 tablespoon Pumpkin Seeds
- 1 tablespoon Almonds
- A pinch of Cinnamon Cardamom & Coconut Sugar
- Add oats and water to a pan and bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and let cook until oats have absorbed the water stirring occasionally. Add cooked oats to a bowl and top with toppings. Enjoy!
For supplements I take a multi-vitamin, vitamin D and probiotic every day. Culturelle® Health & Wellness capsules you can take with water or easily pour the contents into a smoothie. They safely and naturally can help restore the balance of good bacteria in your digestive tract, where 70% of the body’s immune system resides. Balancing the bacteria in the intestines not only helps optimize your immune system and supports your natural defenses, but also helps your digestive system work well.*
For Lunch I’ve been trying to have one big salad everyday! Right now I’m loving these ready-to-eat grab-and-go salads from Whole Foods. You could easily create this salad at home however they are only $5 and they make it easy for this busy new mama to eat well during this season of life when I’m juggling new mom life and work. In addition to salad I’ll also have some crackers and hummus.
In the afternoon I usually grab a protein bar – I’m a big fan of Go Macro plant- based protein bars!
If I’m still hungry a little bit later, I may grab and an apple and some nuts like walnuts or almonds!
For dinner we also change it up. I love cooking dinner in the crockpot because it’s easy! Tonight I’m making this Creamy Large White Lima Bean Slow Cooker Soup.
Once I put Ella to bed for the night, I like to make a cup of chamomile tea and or Magnesium Water. Both help calm my postpartum nerves and settle my busy mind from the day. I will also have a pre-bedtime snack whether it’s another small bowl of oatmeal or a slice of toast with peanut butter.
