I’ve missed this place, this blog is my creative space and I miss it.
It has only been a month since I’ve given birth and already I feel like I am starting to see the flow and rhythm of having a baby at home. Don’t get me wrong, I am still adjusting, but I do feel like each day is easier than the last.
One of the things I do for MYSELF to stay sane (and honestly to gain a little bit of control) is to make sure I have healthy food readily available at home. I like to know that no matter what the day will bring, whether the baby will be in a good mood or will be cranky all day, there’s one thing less I have to figure out, and that is what to eat when it comes to meal times.
I am exclusively breastfeeding right now and I have never been so hungry or thirsty in my life.
I am amaze at the quantity of food that I am eating, but I also want to make sure that I eat balanced meals.
For a month now, I have been making this quinoa bowl for lunch. It’s simple, has lots of flavor and delicious.
If you need a new lunch idea, I would suggest trying this combo. You can make everything ahead of time and just assemble the bowl daily.
In order to make this lunch happen every day, I boil a dozen eggs every weekend to eat throughout the week.
This lunch bowl includes:
- quinoa (I bake a batch ahead of time)
- black beans (optional, Trader Joe’s brand is my favorite)
- boiled eggs
- half avocado
- organic sour cream or greek yogurt
Healthy grains, protein, healthy fats and dairy. Lunch is served!
