Eating Clean On Mommy Time

Caroline keeps me so busy (she's not a big napper and likes lots of stimulation). So sometimes eating well during the week can be hard! At first I relied on a lot of pre-packaged freezer meals which are expensive and not always the healthiest. But I'm learning how to make clean eats in a pinch...

Breakfast
Barbara's Naturals Shredded Oats with organic vanilla soy milk, banana, and green tea. 

Oh, and my all time favorite little breakfast buddy too, she kept me company in her highchair.


Lunch
Wraps: Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Wraps with brown rice, black beans, onion, shredded iceberg lettuce and avocado. This is one of my all time favorite easy lunches. It looks fancy but really it is so quick to make and is really satisfying. 

Snacks
Trail mix: raw almonds, 70% dark cacao chips, raisins, and cranberries. I make a batch, keep in a large jar and pull some out whenever I want to munch. It's addictive! 


Dinner
An Annie's Organics Cheese Pizza and then I add as many veggies as I have in the fridge and freezer. Some of our favorites include spinach, broccoli, bell pepper, mushrooms, and avocado (though add the avocado once the pizza is done or almost done). 

What are some of your favorite quick, healthy on the go meal choices? I really need help with family meals because I've totally fallen off the cooking dinner bandwagon since having a baby. Freezer pizza again anyone?

Black beans, rice, and avocado sound great! I like keeping a bag of carrots and snap peas or peppers in the fridge. We eat a lot of cheese quesodillas, which are easy to doctor with veggies!
