Happy Saturday! I try not to talk about my baby too much on here since it’s a food blog, but the last week has been so rough! I can’t think about much else. I think I have an extremely gassy and refluxy baby and it doesn’t make either of us very happy. I haven’t had the motivation, let alone the time, to cook and there has been lots more takeout in this house than I would like to admit!
Now that I have a baby I have really started to appreciate the art of meal prep and meal planning and I’m trying to incorporate it into my life much more these days since it makes getting a healthy dinner on the table much easier! I hope these posts are helping you guys as well! I’d love to hear from you all if there is any feedback you have for us as we continue these Healthy Vegetarian Meal Plans 🙂
