Starting to become a food blog

Ok so I realized today most of my posts have been about food instead of about being a mommy. I write about food and healthy alternatives because that’s what keeps me going as a mommy… especially while I’m breastfeeding. I wasn’t much of a cooker before I got pregnant and once the whole nesting thing took over and Miles came into this world I felt the urge to clean and cook constantly & keep the fridge stocked with healthy options.

I also threw up and HATED the sight, smell and taste of almost EVERYTHING when I was pregnant so now that I’m not and I’m burning close to 900 cal/day breastfeeding and pumping I crave food constantly! I am also a Trader Joes fanatic so almost everything I make can be found at their store…

so today I made turkey burgers and fries for lunch. Not too healthy but hey at least they were turkey and whole wheat buns 😉 tonight it’s chicken and stir fry veggies for dinner (sautéed in coconut oil instead of EVOO) I have a hard time cooking with coconut oil since I soaked my body in it from day 1 of pregnancy so the smell of it reminds me of that whole time period lol… which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I mean hey! I didn’t get a single stretch mark!

Anyone out there have any trader joes recipes they wouldn’t mind sharing?
