Let the countdown begin… we’re only 6 days away from my due date! 👶🏻💃🏻 Many of you have been asking me to share my pre-baby meal prep, so I decided to put everything together in a blog post for you that’s now live! 🥘🙌
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Over the last few weeks I’ve basically been living in the kitchen. I’m not only trying to get ahead on content so you all won’t miss me while I’m on maternity leave, but also prepping my freezer so Isaac and I have plenty of meals and snacks ready to go during the first few weeks home from the hospital with a new babe. I imagine I won’t have much extra time on my hands. 😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is similar to my meal prep philosophy, but for baby prep I have been focusing mainly on breakfast, dinner and snacks (if I don’t have these things ready to go I tend to reach for less healthy choices 🙈) and making things that I can prep in advance and freeze. I’m also planning out ideas of items that I want to keep on hand for easy meals and snacks like smoothies, protein balls, trail mix, pasta/pasta sauce, apples, nut butter, hummus, veggies, crackers and hard-boiled eggs.

Over on the blog I feature 30+ meal prep ideas with everything from baked oatmeal cups and protein balls to soups, sheet pan meals and freezer burritos. These recipes are perfect for expecting parents or someone who is planning to have a surgery or knows that they have an extremely busy time coming up in their life. Meal prep like this can be a serious game-changer and make you feel a little more prepared for what’s to come! 💯

  • Just mama to mama here, if your baby wants to nurse a lot (which mine did non stop) it’s going to be hard to eat anything that is soupy/hot without risking spilling it on your baby. If I could go back and do it again, the only freezer foods I would make are burritos (holds stuff in better) or bread-like things (banana bread, waffles, pancakes). I stuck to sandwiches, protein bars and fruit most of the time. Not trying to troll here. Please ignore me if you find my comment hurtful in any way, as that is never my intention.
