Meal Planning Monday: Sunny days and sleepy nights
This week's meal plan is late (again - sorry about that) but done nonetheless - we've got M's parents staying with us for 4 days this week so our meal plan is bearing that in mind.
The sunny weather of late has been glorious, but has completely killed my appetite for proper food and I've been getting by with some very unhealthy snacking which keeps me going but isn't great for breastfeeding. So I'm trying desperately to eat properly, so this week's shop has included some bits and bobs I can eat with one hand as well as cordial to make the necessary litres of water a bit more interesting.
Breakfasts: Oatibix (oats are good for supplementing breast milk supply) and a banana
Lunches: either halloumi and houmous in pitta bread with salad, or houmous and avocado in pitta bread with salad. I've had to move away from bowls of salad as I just can't eat salad one handed whilst feeding without getting it down me or on the baby.
Monday: leftover pulled pork in burritos with mushrooms, peppers and avocadao. There wasn't much pork leftover so I needed to bulk it out from the fridge.
Tuesday: Courgetti spaghetti
Wednesday: Leftover Courgetti spaghetti
Thursday: Cottage pie
Friday: Baked pasta and meatballs
Saturday: Chilli con carne in the slow cooker
I baked a variation on bread pudding yesterday so that's our cake supply for the week sorted - blog post to follow.
What's on your meal plan this week? Do you find your appetite diminishes in the heat? How do you get around that?
