I currently have a little chubby baby wrapped up in a Moby Wrap on my chest. After spending the last week and a half trying to get things done with a baby in one arm, I realized that I better invest in a good sling (and I love this one so far)! I got sort of good at cracking an egg with one hand, but didn’t get very good at typing with one hand. Needless to say, dinners around here have been very, very simple. The first night we didn’t have someone bringing us dinner, I made oatmeal (unsoaked, mind you). I have been very glad to have a few meals stowed away in our freezer, but I also know that those will only last so long. So, I thought it would be great to hear ideas from all of my readers on quick prep nourishing meals. I know that I am certainly only going to be doing simple meals for the next few months, but quick prep meals are always appreciated, no matter what season of life we are in. Please share your ideas!
Here are a few ideas from my blog:
Crockpot Chicken and Quinoa An ever popular recipe here on The Nourishing Gourmet, this is also a family favorite. It’s great for me in this season as well as it only takes a few minutes to put together and quinoa was traditionally used to support healthy lactation.
Easy Chicken Noodle Soup While this takes a few hours to cook, it only take minutes to throw together. And I am sure it could easily be adapted to a slow cooker.
Lemon Garlic Drumsticks I have several meals worth of this recipe in my freezer. All I need to do is defrost and cook. But it’s are easy to throw together “from scratch” too!
Herbed Baked Eggs Eggs are a super simple meal to throw together in a myriad of ways. This method is only slightly more complicated than frying an egg, but seems special too.
Now it’s your turn! What are your ideas for nourishing meals that are easy to throw together? I would love to hear from you!
