Mama: Annalise, mother of 18 month old John

More than just a blogging friend and walking partner, my friend Annalise is a dear friend who I’ve gotten to journey through the new stages of motherhood with. She told me the the real, raw stories of entering into motherhood. She helped me choose which kind of re-uasable diapers to buy and brought me yummy meals even before Everett arrived. Though her mama foods haven’t always been this perfect looking (she has confessed to popcorn as her lunch with a newborn), she definitely has some great meals now!

New Mom Recipe & Tip: ‘Pre roast vegetables and make a big batch of quinoa to throw on salads. Top with a infused olive oil (like lemon and rosemary) and seeds or nuts. I often times add some cottage cheese to my salads – this came to me when I was feeding John cottage cheese and eating a salad then I snuck a few bites of his cottage cheese which turned out to be a good compliment to my salad. Also, skipping bread at lunch time has helped me to get rid of my extra baby weight.’

  1. Beautiful pictures. I really needed a boost for my meals. I am a widow and cooking for one takes too much effort. I’m off to Trader Joe’s to buy veggies and quinoa into pressure cooker. Blessings for your sharing. Joyce

    • Joyce, you should try the grain farro with this too! It’s easy to make at the begging of the week and enjoy all week long. It’s a little more substantial than quinoa and has a nice nutty flavor. Also, my super bowls are great to make in a bigger quantity so you have plenty of leftovers all week! Report back, I’d like to hear what you think!
