Are you looking for easy freezer meals for new moms and dads?
Having a baby is an exciting time, but between feeding and sleeping schedules, it’s hard to find time to make sure that you are well-fed and rested too.
That’s why having some easy meals on hand is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
I recently had my first child, and a month before my due date, I made sure to start thinking about meal planning. So many of my friends and bloggers I follow mentioned how helpful it was to start meal prepping for those first few weeks, and I took their advice.
The problem is that living on a boat means we have a very small amount of fridge and freezer space available, so carefully planning and prepping in advance was especially important!
I knew that I wanted to eliminate as much stress as possible once the baby came, and looking for easy freezer meals for new moms and parents helped me eliminate some of that stress.
Because I spent so much time researching different meals and freezer snacks for new moms, I decided to put together a list of the best ones I found.
My daughter is now 6 months old, and the meals I am sharing with you today were a huge help during those first couple of months.
Wes and I were learning how to take care of her and adjust to having a baby and having these meals all ready to go in the freezer meant we stayed fed.
Here are some of my favorite recipes on this list:
- Freezer Oatmeal Cups – These are great for breakfast or snacks, and you can use almost any fresh or dried fruit you have. Plus, if you are breastfeeding, I’ve read that oatmeal can boost milk production.
- Make-Ahead Mexican Lasagna – This combines two of my favorite types of foods: Mexican and pasta. You can also get a lot of leftovers out of this recipe.
- Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches – This simple breakfast sandwich recipe can easily be made vegetarian, and the sandwiches heat up quickly in the microwave. And, this is a great one-hand meal while you’re holding your baby.
Those are just a few of the recipes I’m sharing with you today.
All of the easy freezer meals for new moms and dads on this list are easy to prepare, delicious, and turn out great once you reheat them. [Read more…]
