When you’re a new mom, the cooking game definitely changes.
Those gourmet meals you cooked for you and your husband pre-pregnancy? Gone. Not forever, but at least until you have enough time to eat, sleep, and shower in the same day.
When I first became a mom, I definitely struggled putting meals on the table. I would buy a ton of healthy ingredients with every intention of making a killer meal, but when it came to dinner time, I just didn’t have the energy. This resulted in lots of fast food and very little postpartum weight loss.
In my opinion, meal planning as a new mom is a matter of survival. You reduce those pointless runs to grocery store, avoid sticky fast food situations, and ensure that you’re getting all the nutrients your body needs to cope with a little one. Whether you’re a meal planning beginner or you’re simply meal planning as a new mom, the tips below have made my life easier. I hope that they do the same for you!
