Since having Chloe I have learned why it is so hard for mothers to stay healthy and eat good meals. Even with one kid I find it hard not to just grab the first thing I see to shove down my throat so I can go back to playing with the babe.
Slowly I have learned that if I want to eat a healthy lunch and make a quality meal for Dev when he gets home, there is a lot of planning and prep involved. Usually I do this when Chloe is taking her nap because when she is awake she demands my attention. Even if it means cutting up vegetables or setting out dishes and cans of things, I try to get most of it ready.
This is what Dev and I had for lunch on Saturday. Homemade sweet potato fries with a breaded chicken salad loaded with veggies.
It's hard work sometimes but so worth it to know I'm doing my best at feeding my little family. I have a new years goal to get better at cooking and to continue trying more recipes.
