You are very sweet1 I don’t think nursing effects what type of food she can eat but I’m sure she would appreciate any meals that she can put in the freezer and defrost when needed. So any meals that can be frozen ahead of time. How about chicken pot pie, lasagna, a sauce (then she just has to boil pasta), an soup is great. You could do a lentil or bean soup with hamburger and you would have a veggie, meat, and starch all in one pot.

I did a quick search and found this link with a list of casseroles that can be frozen.


This link also has recipes on the side bar:

I just saw a great recipe on Pinterest the other day and I think it would be perfect!

You basically just take a few frozen chicken breasts, quartered new potatoes, and fresh green beans.  You pour Italian dressing on top, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and freeze.  Mom just pops it in the oven!

If they lean healthy, there is a great mac and cheese recipe on Skinnytaste.com- doesn’t really taste “healthy” but actually is, and it’s really good. Also things like enchiladas or shepherds pie than just need to go in the oven, and soups or chilis that can be frozen and just popped into a pot on the stove.

Plus, salad ingredients and maybe chopped veggies and dip as snacks?

I would also include some healthy fruits precut or easy to grab. I’ll be honest I eat wraps most of the time because I can throw something in it quickly and there is a meal. Maybe the fixings for it and wraps. That is something quick and easy to do as well.

Try something with whole grains in it like something with quinoa or barley. I recently made this: http://www.motherearthnews.com/real-food/bulgur-recipes-zmaz73mazraw.aspx?page=2#ixzz1z0U7ErM0 and stuffed zucchini and bell peppers. Really delicious and re-heats well. You try baked chicken with cornbread, or homemade chicken noodle soup, I like Alton Brown’s on the Food network. If you plan on making dessert, try something with fruit in it, like berry crisp. Hope this helps!
